    It has been raining cats and dogs here for hours. Spent a busy morning catching up with 2 weeks housework. Feeling pleased with results and as usual vacuuming helped lower my bloods from 9-6. We usually eat our one meal of the day at 2/3ish so was about to prepare it and thought good grief, this sort of weather needs a bottle of red and an apple turnover. So a quick trip to Tesco’s local and result. Squiffy and happy! Still raining though ☹️

    In hiding for a while.

    Read a dreadful article in the Guardian on intensive chicken production at three UK farms. Horrendous. Appalling. And I am so upset I cannot think straight.

    Multiple Dose Injections.
    In other words, not pumping.

    I'm having very regular bloods done at the moment, for my thyroid, although they're still c6 weeks apart. The Doc does the next form when we discuss the most recent results, os it hangs around a while.

    Having had one "Oh bother" moment when I couldn't find it, the night before my tests (I did in the end), I just scan mine as soon as I get it, then if I really do lose one, I can just reprint it. It takes 30 seconds, and works for me.

    Today’s smorgasbord of lessons I have no idea how to teach - Performing Arts, Geography, Art, Piano and Orchestral Studies. Still, I did get to explain periods to some thirteen year old boys, which is always amusing. They’d done it the lesson before in science and were a bit confused by the time they got to my art lesson. So as they designed a sugar skull, I edumacated them. Stopped off in the horror that is Merthyr Tydfil on the way home as I spotted a branch of Home Bargains that looks bigger than my local one - they’ve started selling pea protein powder but my local one is too small to stock it. Result, got a couple of bags. Half the price of Holland and Barrett and similar nutritional profile. Stocked up on dextrose tabs too, at a quid for a twin pack I don’t know of anywhere cheaper.

    Just got a Mel-friendly version of brinjal sag paneer simmering for when the husbeast comes home.

    Off to the lovely East Midlands again tomorrow, part-time jobbing and seeing younger daughter and family - happy! East Midlands Rail have coughed up total fare refund plus an extra payment ‘goodwill payment’ (!) they’re really keen to avoid the tougher questions. My thank you note included words about upgrading the communications system to be forwarded to the relevant people. A cop out, I know, but I really can’t face the high BG and time of a proper enquiry/class action, though I’d add my name. Ruddy privatisation!

    Back from hols, and have now caught up on 2 weeks of this thread. I think that was about 900 messages...

    Cycling round southern Scotland and northern England - tandem, camping, all up weight of bike + kit 60kg, and we did 840 miles. Quite chuffed. Record BSL of 26.something according to the libre, 2u and 30 min riding later, 5.something and needing to eat. Hadn't quite got the exercise/food/insulin balance sorted by then :)

    (the eventual answer was 6u + a bigger breakfast rather than normal 18u+ for sedentary, a couple of u with lunch, eat to balance, and slightly more basal than normal at night, which was slightly surprising)

    Morning all, on standby, waiting for that call...

    Bloods running too high 60% of the time this week - don’t know if it’s stress or if I’m coming down with something. Reluctant to hammer it because I’m commuting 120 miles a day...
