    Just try to stay indoors - those bees can be possessive.

    Agree. Outdoors it would probably wiser to use a boring old hypo treatment from a closed container and be creative in ways not involving sugary food!

    It depends on the person, we are all different. If anything, if you feel low, just stop and chuck down your treats. I unfortunately go a bit low 9/10 times when it comes to hugging.

    Also, I'd expect a lot of difference between 'just a quickie' (I mean, how much can happen to your bg in 5 minutes, provided you start at a reasonable number?) or a full evening program.

    :hilarious::hilarious::hilarious: It takes 5 mins to take your clothes off, right? Or do certain people get a bit excited and strip in 2.5 mins?

    How many clothes do you wear in this heat? Takes me all of 10 seconds max. Pull T-shirt over head (in winter grab T-shirt and pullover together in one move), pull down bra and catch pants, knickers and sometimes socks on the way down.

    Did you know some people actually sleep naked? No need for wasting time undressing when they decide on some exercise!

    Silly o'clock morning to you all, it's just started to get light.
    The beginning of a new week so hope it's going to be a good one for us all.
    Off today to Buckley, just over the border into Wales, to have some fun with my nephew 56yrs and his wife. I imagine that this may involve quite a lot of drinking of gin and diet tonic.
    3.5hrs to get there on the train!! and that's just as far as Chester where they'll pick me up
    The steroid battle continues, high teens still this morning. I admit to be a bit worried even though you've told me not to
    Have a lovely day

    Yep, I knew that. Always have done it, always will. When I went to hospital I had to buy a couple of nighties! Sent 'em off to the charity shop as soon as I got out of that wretched place. These days I have a lightweight wrap thing for swanning about in after I've had a shower or bath, but I couldn't sleep in it!

    Morning all, off to spend the day with a friend from Oxford so we're meeting sort of half-way and exploring the area around Berkeley. Hope you all have good days (despite the fact it's Monday!) whatever you're doing. @SueJB go back to sick day rules and correct, hope you get back into single figures during the day.

    I have a mouth ulcer on the tip of my tongue! Makes eating very sore. Still - there's always slurpy things. *goes off to think of slurpy meals*

    Morning all, not much to say, better blood sugar overnight than the previous night, no correction needed.

    Going to try and dodge the rain, while getting a reasonable bit of sun this morning, then do more work like stuff this afternoon. It's just habit, afternoons are usually sunnier, and warmer here, so I should do it the other way round, but it's habit.
