    @Diabeticliberty Ahh!! thank you your so kind, the gout is under control at the moment, but was chatting to Kristin251 about it and followed a couple of links it's so much to take in and even Kristin251 hadn't realised there was so much information to digest.Its a real eye opener but when I'd calmed down I remembered my GP saying don't worry too much about the foods has it hadn't been proven that foods where responsible. So I'm just going to carry on Has I have been since diagnosis and reduce protein carbs and go low fat and see what happens,then take it from their. I just needed those kind words and support much appreciated. Kathleen

    Frosty? It was absolutely freezing when I left home. I was out with my doggie at 5.30am and she was not at all happy.

    Actually I expected my HbA1c to be in the forties because I had been eating very sinful for a very long period like 4 month and it must be my added muscles that does the main work here ... so not really hard work : I have been eating more than 200 grams in average Daily and the bad thing is I have also gained 12 kg in the same period so I need to change again back to a diet where I dont gain so less fruit and sugar and also less fat

    You are of course absolutely correct, well nearly correct. I am NESH not mesh. We have just got back from our evening jaunt and today's combined running and walking effort amounts to just over 13 miles. The hound is only a bambino and still ramping herself up for a life of gundog stuff. I on the other hand am a tired old buzzard and just wanna doss in my smoking jacket drinking whisky. She is joining me tomorrow clay pigeon shooting with a good friend. Let's see what the little blonde terrorist makes of this little venture.

    Hyvää huomenta teille kaikille herkullisimmille diabeettisille kurpikoille. As it's the weekend I have already started drinking heavily. In a 4.00am drunken stupor it seemed a perfectly reasonable idea to have a go at a do it yourself tattoo on the middle of my forehead using a fountain pen and an old syringe. I had tried to draw a snake with a dagger but unfortunately I am not the most wonderful artist in the world. I just ended up with a blue black splodge that looks like 3.4 if you screw up your eyes. My blood sugar share 3.4mmols. I am now on my to the walk in centre for a tetanus injection. Have a great day folks whatever you are doing. I am walking my dog and the looking up a very old friend and we are going clay pigeon shooting. Should be a very good day I hope :)

    My mother was such a down to earth type. If we as children complained about the cold a frequent rejoinder from her was “ walk or run faster or jump up and down on the spot for 5 minutes”. Do believe that would be called child abuse nowadays LOL. Never did us any harm
