    Always feels like a Christmas film don’t you think?
    Apparently it’s a repeat :):):)

    It would appear to be one of the most popular threads on the forum, especially if you do some mathematical stuff and match type1’s as a percentage on the forum v posts and views on the forum.
    We’re interesting gals and guys:):)

    Yeah, I reckon it's to do with the way the thread can switch in a flash from blethering off topic about whether Joe90 was better than Space 1999, to sharing detailed views on how best to bolus for cheesecake and pasta.

    Yeah I think you’re right. We take the thread beyond diabetes but still manage to be the prime go to source of information for T1.
    Joe90 and Space 1999. Blast from the past:).
    Do you remember UFO and a bit later Blake’s 7? A time when you could put a few flashing lights in a cardboard box and it appeared beyond technical comprehension.

    It doesn't matter how they look, it's how they taste!:)

    Well let’s hope they taste like cookies, not sure what cockies taste like. I could ask around though I guess.:)

    Lol, indeed I do! Born in 1967, so all those cheesy space age shows with flimsy sets were part of my upbringing as a 12 yr old!

    Never occurred to me back in those halcyon days that a being from the depths of the universe could speak perfect English but a mere human across a small stretch of water made no sense whatsoever.:)

    Those cookies look nice @Delticmatt100 - what’s in them?

    Had a lovely curry at our favourite “special occasion” restaurant- celebrating the new beginnings going on in our household in the next few months. Completely ballsed up the carbs guess and am now sailing along at 8.5 but Loop reckons I’ll be back at target in a few hours. It brings me down gently which I find frustrating at times, but better to have a soft landing than a hypo, I suppose.

    Hope you’ve all had smooth days :)

    Pesky Loop has decided it's more important to get the 20,000, 1000 calculations sorted out than keeping you in range, so yer on yer own with this one for a while!

    Morning, 4.7 is a good reading, so you could keep checking BG.

    When my sister made a gorgeous looking round fruit cake at school( 1970's) we were all impressed, until my mum tried to cut it and a hammer, chisel, hacksaw and probably a jigsaw too was needed lol :rolleyes:, but I really did feel sorry for the poor garden birds :wideyed::(

    Hi @Robinredbreast - very lively start to the day there!

    I'm just grateful it's Sunday and not Monday -and I'm hoping this dull, overcast weather moves on. Mind you, it's nice that it's a bit cooler.

    I don't have much planned other than a bit of cooking. I'd like to get on with my current stitching, mainly so I can move on. I put this project sideways for a few weeks and I'm always bad at picking up again. Problem is it's the second of two in a mini-series, and I already have the frames so I have to finish. And I'm over half way through. (Can you hear me forcing myself back to my stitching frame?)

    Good Morning, Good Evening!
    I hear you WuTwo, I have paperwork that I have to finish sorting and filing that I have stared at for two days, sitting right next to my computer, so I can't ignore it.............I'm almost done so you would think...................
