    Afternoon friends, I’ve been up for a while. 6.2 this morning :)
    Unfortunately I woke up during the early hours of the morning because a wisdom tooth decided it was a good time to go full force in pain. But diabetes was cool during the night.

    Not been too hideous so far today, there’s only four lessons on a Monday here. A day of the dead project with y8 and photography with y9 - I was runner up young photographer of the year when I was their age, so it was fun. Helping out in Geography last lesson.

    Pod got dislodged from my left leg so went a bit too high for my liking, until I could find the first aid room so I could change it. Every time I’ve put a pod on that leg, it’s failed. No idea why, it’s fine on the other one.

    Back to 5.1 now :)

    Helen, our surgery has a walk in clinic every morning from 08:30 - 10:30. A couple of years ago, when I was having my bosom inspected every other day (I had a significant haematomy chucking out egg sized blood clots, post surgery), the ANP told me, as we were making small talk, that the best approach for the walk in clinic was to arrive around 09:30. By then the queue down the carpark had been dealt with and it was usually becoming civilised.

    I wonder if that would be the case where you are too? Not that either of us want to be attending more than we can possibly avoid!

    Thanks @DCUKMod - I had wondered the best time to arrive and know Monday is the busiest day because there's a weekend of lurgy to build up.
    Unfortunately, I had a work commitment which meant I needed to get in and out as soon as possible.
    And, I have no chance for the next couple of days. So I went as early as I could and was out before the pharmacy opened.

    Good afternoon. Day three of fast acting insulin. I've had two days of flatlining and this morning I injected my correction dose into my muscle by mistake and had my first hypo. 3.1 was the lowest in a matter of minutes. It was all over in 5 minutes later after I ate a sugar cube, but I did sweat profusely and my heart raced. At least I know I'm hypo aware. I still don't know how I managed it.

    @ert - as you say, at least you know you're aware, and know what brought it on. That's great.

    Home, lunch has been munched and I am sat with some rooibos tea just generally chilling. Life is good :happy:

    I tried it and it’s quite nice and creamy. Still prefer my coffee black though.

    @Mel dCP - yep, I'm a black coffee woman myself. Couldn't start my day without it! (Well, not and have my brain awake as well as my body ....)

    Ain't gonna put butter in anything!

    Coffee comes naked, so does rooibos tea and herbal tea!

    Did you check out the carbs in the wrap? They're normally quite high, and then tomatoes have natural sugars too. Crisps are fairly carby and yoghurt can be.

    Do you carb count yet? A wrap, tomatoes & crisps would come to about 70g carb. Not a problem but you might have different ratios at differing times of day - a lot of us do. I run four basal rates and I know the pumpers can have loads.

    Hiii no I'm not counting carbs.
    Just trying to manage with insulin. Diabetes nurse said I'm doing great so far.
    Will ask questions on Wednesday.
