    @WuTwo Do you hate it when you pick up a bag of crisps and look on the back to find it has milk in the ingredients? :rolleyes:

    Hello friends,

    I've been a good potato - stable all night and woke up on 8.1, but yesterday's mcdonalds session was worth it for my tummy but not diabetes. It screamed high for 5-6 hours. :grumpy:

    I love the lentil ones but have to hide some if I’m going to get any - whole family turn into vegesharks.

    Just spent a frustrating bs raising hour trying to pay tax through HMRC online site - don’t know why I bothered - total fail. Able to do it in a flash through online banking and sort etc codes for govt coffers. Hope not more redundancies looming for govt workforce.

    I find the Womble one of the most useful sites I have ever come across.

    And yes, sometimes only crisps will do. I think it's the salt.

    The students have left the Main Paid Work building in their own inimitable fashion. The leavers left with panache, oh my... "This is me" from the Greatest Showman really has become their anthem for this day and reports of me and my main students in a group hug dancing along and singing our hearts out will neither be confirmed nor denied.

    Just three days of training to go.

    The first round of gas men have done their bit. I sit and wait for the next one to arrive and dream of the possibility of the first bath since Tuesday.

    The meter mover and drilling of a large hole in the wall. The meter's being moved from an inside cupboard to a box onto the outside wall. I gain a kitchen cupboard.

    Did another “couch to 5k” stagger up and down my lane a couple of hours ago, wearing the proper kit this time. Wasn’t as hard as the first one, and I set my pump to 10% with a slightly higher target 15 mins before going. Was fine in the fives until about an hour ago, when I’ve rocketed to 9.5 - whether that’s the hot bath I’m sat in or me not having enough insulin, I’ll find out when I get out! If it’s not the bath, I’ll try basal at 20% next time.

    Tragic and only goes to add another “ danger of diabetes “ to the list.

    First one I did was wearing my seriously serious Haix paramedic boots. I’m not risking my lovely purple DMs up our rough lane! I nicked my son’s trainers :D
