    Morning all, so happy to see the sun again.
    @hh1 I shower and bath. The preference depends on the time of day, what I've done or what I'll be doing. This morning I'm not having either as I'm going to spend the day in the garden or down the tip so I should be well stinky and ache later. I'll decide then if the aches are big, it's a soak.

    I had a brilliant day at Country File Live yesterday and thought I'd walked miles.. I hadn't taken that many steps. I watched some fab Staffies doing agility and they were wonderful. It's a shame Mr B doesn't want one.

    Listened to Whisperine Bob talk about his life and the influence of music. Splendid. Matt Baker was OK but he looked a bit bored at times. Drank some lovely Severn Cider, single variety. OH, OH, BG wasn't expecting that. Had a sausage no bun and felt the world was a grand place. British Charolais and other animals were an eye opener.

    I went to bed on 15.3 having increased basal
    Woke on 15.3, so that's OK
    Bunged in some more bolus
    Let the day commence. I'm going to make the blueberry muffins today @Robinredbreast, if I'm not too stinky to go to the local shop

    Have a lovely Sunday:)

    Morning all, going to pick up some tiles today and take my dog's food to the local animal sanctuary. I don't want to keep it until puppy's old enough to eat grown up food and all my local friends feed their dogs different food and prefer to keep them on what they're used to (I always did too). Besides, anywhere that looks after lost/stray/abandoned/had to leave home animals gets my support. Have a good Sunday all whatever you're up to :)

    Morning everyone,

    blood sugar behaved reasonably well overnight, though I did do a 1 unit correction around 2 am, but that was better than the correction the previous night, so hopefully none might be needed tonight.

    Just finding ways, today, to avoid the too many people around for the festival, have to go out early, as they all get up quite late. Which was actually better in may ways, anyway.

    Hope everyone has a good day.

    Good morning, awoke on 7.1 which is better and I have work today, promoting Oggs vegan cakes, I have seen them in the shop I am going to, but they're not cheap, compared to other cakes, but I will do my very best.
    Yesterday's cleaning and cooking kept me very busy, freezer is a bit empty now, but clean and frost free :) and I made a cottage pie too, 1/2 last night and the rest today.
    Happy Sunday, hope you all have a good day :)

    I bet you could persuade anyone to buy an Oggs vegan cake, RobinRedBreast!

    I do like a bath, especially with aching bones, upper right back, also you can chill out the body and the mind too, but showers are quick and easy. My bath has helped a few of times regarding medical conditions and I couldn't of done without the bath, plus I recycle the water with buckets, and a watering can and at least I am in my own mucky water :hilarious: :)

    Next consultation I’ll be sure to enquire about the DAD course. Not entirely sure where it’ll lead but in for a penny and all that.:)

    ALERT ALERT ALERT. Post #21168 @helensaramay is guilty of mentioning not only Christmas but presents as well.
    Surely this cannot be tolerated. :woot::woot::woot:

    It only needs someone telling us how many days/hours/minutes/seconds there are to go and we’ll all be screaming.
    But . . .
    Persian food sounds fabulous!

    Just a quick Q
    If the steroid injection I've had had caused my BG to rise and therefore as a result I've had to increase insulin because of becoming insulin resistant.
    Will the resistance go away or will I have to do something to get my basal/bolus input down to pre-steroid level.
    Sorry to harp on!

    Morning chaps, amazing night last night, four hours sleep and today we’re off to the Battle of Evesham re-enactment event. Bloods good and I left the charging cable for my Fitbit at home, so will have no watch for the day. Oops.

    Bath.

    Morning my pancreatically challenged chums, hope you all had a good night

    Last night for about 30 minutes we had torrential rain, it was really bouncing off the roads. The roads themselves were flooded quite badly before quickly draining away

    Usual Saturday night for me, Chicken Bhunna and a smallish piece of nan bread and 4 pieces of pakora. Bloods great between 6pm and bed at 11.30 with a final BG of 6.1 going to bed. I had dual bolused on pump at 6 pm for 5 hours so that should be OK. Once again a big fat NO. Woke up at 5.15 to a BG that had risen constantly and and settled at 13.6. Bunged in 5 units and woke at 9am to BG of 6.2.

    I know its only 1 day a week but I need to get a handle on the rising BG when I have an Indian

    @helensaramay that's fine for the reminder. Funnily enough, when first diagnosed I was told not to use my thumb or the finger next to it, don't know why, possibly something to do with doing buttons up with.
    So I've only been using 6 digits, heavy work load.

    I love Archenemy! I saw them at Wembley Arena a couple of years ago and they were brilliant :) She really does sing like that - it's not dubbed or anything.

    I think I spent the whole night in the 4's. It's not something I aim for, as a bit too close to hypo territory for comfort but I still love it when it happens :). Finger prick said 4.9 upon waking, Libre said 3.9 with an almost perfectly straight line between 3.1 and 3.9 (all in annoying red of course) so I suppose I've been hovering between 4 and 5.
    Wish I knew how I pulled that trick off though. If I knew I would repeat it every night but just the slightest bit higher :hilarious:

    The walk yesterday morning may have helped but I don't think it's very likely as it hasn't happened before on days with about the same intensity of exercise. Had a late and quite carby dinner and I was kind of annoyed with myself for eating so late that my after dinner numbers had only about settled when I went to sleep, so food isn't a likely cause of the flat line either.

    Back to the color of my underwear I guess (haven't worn socks for weeks so we can rule that out).
    I'm afraid I'll never be sure, but I'll scan my sensor a bit more often than usual today, only to admire that pretty line on the screen again :cool:
