    For first time ever, drum roll please, yesterday my Libre had me in target for 24 hours. 100%, perfection, etc. And even beyond that for the next 8 hours I was also in target range. 4.5--8.0

    Woke up to a decent 5.6, had the same brekkie as yesterday, at same time, took same amount of insulin via my pump, did the same things sat at a desk in front of spreadsheets. 2 hours later I had spiked to 13.7. WTF:banghead::banghead::banghead:. Got it back on track now with a correction dose

    Just when you think you have it cracked........ Putting it down to wearing blue boxer shorts yesterday and black ones today:angelic::angelic:

    Oh wow, with my bf he listens with 50% attention sometimes. It can be frustrating, like last week or so I explained I put in my prescription for a clinical sharps bin to dump my test strips and needles. Fast forward to few days ago I asked him to pick it up, go to the pharmacy for glucotabs and go to the shop next door for coke. He asked “why do you need the bin? Whats the bin for?”
    He shuts off when I have eyes on, in his perspective, unnecessary items, but this girl has to have some muji storage for her desk, right? Or more books
    To some extent I’m glad he listens, sometimes.

    Hi guys. Need advice. Coming to end of my first Humalog insulin. Do I put the insulin in the bin or in the sharps box?

    Strangely enough comming back on the ferry. There was an announcement that trading would cease for ten minutes?

    Later I went down to the bar to get a cold soft drink. (Driver.) the guy getting served next to me handed over the euros for his beer & the barman informed him the tariff had increased by 5 cents... o_O

    You're assuming too many ingredients left in my kitchen after too many times cooking without shopping... I'm guessing more in the likes of who cares about vitamins and tomorrow is a new day :)
    They don't seem to get crunchy either, more leathery. I'll give them another ten minutes in the oven.

    If your oven is hot enough, they should be crispy. :)
    Oh, I guess we’ll make with what you have in your kitchen - have you come up with any ideas?

    I started by munching cheese while waiting for the chick peas. Then I ate about half of the chick peas that turned out quite crunchy after all. I didn't like them that much but they are very more-ish. So no need for a real meal anymore, although I'll probably do some more fridge snacking before bedtime an have some chicory with hummus and possibly some nuts or pork scratchings in bed before sleeping :)

    I felt the same way about chickpeas. I had 50g of it yesterday and it was quite filling. I know some dutch people love chicory wrapped in ham, I like chicory by it self

    For Libre users:
    The pig group on facebook I'm a member of has given me a jolt a couple of times before when reading things like: "How do y'all feel about injection guns" before noticing I wasn't reading in a diabetes group.
    Laughed out loud at this picture of a registration tag [​IMG].

    Well here we are sitting in the low teens with enough IOB to put a horse in a hypo.
    Checked socks. They’re fine.
    Feeling 99% , no sniffles or imminent lurgy.
    Current insulin been working fine all day.
    My two most favourite little people ( granddaughter and grandson :) ) tucked up fast asleep in bed.
    Hah Hah. There’s the problem :).
    A Pink concert in Cardiff booked last year by my daughter, with a request of a weekday / school day sleepover.
    A memory lapse to note down aforementioned concert on this years calendar along with my OH booking a night shift for tonight.
    End result. Me and the kids doing our first ever “ us three sleepover “ and more exciting/ stressful our first ever “ get to school on time in the morning .”
    I’m almost certain my sugars will be fine at about 8.45 am tomorrow :).
    It’s a great honour to have them here and I’m savouring every moment even though my nerves are shattered :).
