    @Delticmatt100 - Can't be the Pepsi then. Weird! Put it down to wearing socks, not wearing socks, being too hot, being too cold - any of it. Sometimes there's no rhyme nor reason to it, you just got to deal.....:cool:

    Oh yes! And with slightly stale cake that you've warmed through (vry gently) in the microwave so that it goes moist again......

    Well on the hypo front, I only drop below three about once every three months, and only below four once or twice a week - my bg doesn’t change rapidly so I can head off a hypo before it happens :)

    Bake it yourself. Apart from the wait, it tastes much better, contains less sugar than shop bought ones and you can add your own enhancements like cinnamon, saltanas and flaked almonds. If you can't be bothered to make the pastry, go for a crumble instead

    The day I got my eyes dilated to check for retinopathy, so have to wear sunglasses all the time, like the Blues Brothers :hilarious:

    It turned up on post about 2 billion ago :)

    Yep eyes are fine had a look at the scans, couple of very small loops and a very tiny bleed in one eye but they have been there since the ice age, basically nothing has changed :woot:
    Now sat here, with sun glasses on, drinking coffee and eating a Cadburys Flake, I had real craving for some chocolate, while listening to vinyl records :joyful:

    @Delticmatt100 Cornflakes, defiantly the cornflakes, I eat them, plus loads of others and always a couple of hours later I see a spike starting, got used to it now, know roughly when it's going to hit and deal with it :)

    The cornflakes - they are a shocker for most of us.

    Perhaps get the book or ebook of Dr Bernstein's Diabetes Solution. That is where your question can be answered, well at least one way. (from a fellow Aussie).

    Had to nip back to the office - left my phone on my desk! Can't cope without it - my diabetes app is on there, and at night it's my music box, where I watch Netflix & Prime and play sudoku. Be lost without it!

    I think I'd panic too to be honest, from libre app to telephone numbers to my baby cousin photos - oh she is the sweetest and such a happy baby.

    I use to troll my dad with a song that goes "where my phone? where my keys?" because he is at an age where he is forgetful :hilarious:

    I think I was more just racing out of there as fast as I possibly could, before the boss said the words "Before you go, could you just ......"
