    That’s a hectic timetable.
    I expect you’re there for work, but I visited Istanbul a few years ago when my brother lived there. It was an amazing place. Have you had time to ‘do’ any of the sights?
    I thought the food was great too.

    I have so much to do today, I kept myself awake scheduling and rescheduling tasks in my head.

    Hi all, last day today and the mega travelling ahead.
    Serious oopage last night but it was worth it, we had a lovely end of holiday meal, the main was very low carb until I succumbed to Aussie fries and did eat all of them, then really threw caution to the wind and had a huge slice of carrot cake which was definately not made to a low carb recipe, hence a whopping 7.3 this morning :arghh: never mind all of this will be a distant memory in a couple of days once I’m home and get back on track.

    Certainly am, it's one of the reasons I came here to live in Australia. I lived in a regional town for twenty years called Mt. Isa and the forecast temp there today is 42°of nice dry heat.

    It was pretty hot on the bowling green at the club yesterday though, nice to get a cold drink though.

    Bit late posting today as we went to Hereford for the day. 5.7 @ 06.23 so still within the bounds of so called normality ;) I wonder what the result of my HbA1c taken last Tuesday will be: I'm assuming it's not too bad as the surgery haven't phoned me to complain!:nailbiting::nurse:

    Hope you managed to get everything done so you can sleep properly tonight. It’s horrible when your mind won’t shut off.

    Thanks for asking, I did.
    As dawn slowly creeped up, I felt so anxious...sleep deprivation and I never do the tango:inpain:.
    I should be heading up in the next half an hour.
    I am already nodding off.
    Today was murder.
    I was sleepy all day, and I needed my wits around me.
