Morning

Had a Morrisons order due last night, 1 missing item and 1 substitute, seems they only had 1 pack of my caramel cake bars (not surprised as they went off offer on Sunday so people probably nabbed them while they were still £1 a packet) and the sub was German salami instead of Danish, was due from 9-10pm but got a call at 7:58pm to say they were outside the flat door (Bruce's cause I wouldn't be dealing with anything between 9-10 as I'm getting ready for bed then) so time with Bruce was cut short as he had to get off and take it, he doesn't mind but we book late because a - its cheaper and b - that's when we want it, what if it was due to working in another town and it wasn't possible for someone to get there as soon?

Anyway's was 4.0 at 5:35am so took 2 glucose chews as a precaution and was 5.5 an hour later before breakfast

Have a nice day folks
xx

Morning all and 4.9 for me.

Currently reducing morning levemir and day time bolus to avoid afternoon hypos, could be the weather, could be the gardening, could be the DF.

Got studio dates to hopefully finish our new album. Here's hoping another lockdown doesn't scupper that again.

I think a walk on the canal bank is on the cards for later on.

Have a good day everyone.

Bin day so woken as usual by the bin lorry roaring into our close at 06:25, but Glory Be! I turned over and dozed off again and was woken at 7 by my alarm going off.

5.7 this morning, so after a downward trend over the last few days I 've nudged back the other way a bit, but that may be because I didn't test as soon as I got up like I usually do. That'll teach me.

Sun's shining and forecast is for 28 degrees today. One final taste of Summer before Autumn kicks in proper, I suspect.

boiling a chicken carcass for stock
Well done making your own stock. I cook a lot but am ashamed to say I’ve never made my own stock.

I went to bed at 6.3 but had a visit from the DF and woke with a 9
Who can tell me how that happens? I’ve not experienced that yet so am interested.

Good morning everyone. 4.3 when I got up so a small can of full fat Coke got me up to 5.9. That’s after three days of waking mid-teens! Mark has gone into work today so first day on my own for six months!

@HenryBennett , it’s happened to me a few times when my BS drops too low while asleep & my liver then dumps some sugar into my bloodstream but, I can usually tell when that happens because I wake up with a hangover type headache! When insulin needs suddenly change when ill, or whatever, overnight basal like Levemir doses is the first to affect BS when you wake in the morning. That’s when libre really becomes useful so, you can see what happened overnight: not always as apparently obvious if your BS rises overnight; you need more insulin as it may be the opposite & you need less! o_O:rolleyes:

That made me think. The last time I had a ffC was last summer (2019) when my great nieces dropped by on a hot day and I made us all Coke floats. The good old days :cool:

pull it too much in any direction & it pings back on you
A good analogy. I’m learning one has to be ever vigilant.

Well done making your own stock. I cook a lot but am ashamed to say I’ve never made my own stock.
I always buy a large chicken from the butchers and I de joint it, breasts and legs go in the freezer and the carcass and wings get made into stock, there’s usually enough chicken left on the bones to make a chicken soup or a pie . I freeze this too if I’m not using it straight away but I’m making a chicken, ham and leek pie for tomorrow’s tea. BTW I am an insulin user and am “ allowed” pie on occasions! ;) The stock lasts for ages in the fridge, I take away the fat that solidifies on the top and make soup or gravy with it.

Good luck to Mark and you of course. Hope he’s hidden your credit card! ;)

I used hyena bones once and made myself a laughing stock....

Sorry - that belongs in the terrible jokes thread.

hellloooo all. I dropped my libre reader on a dog walk yesterday and my phone also has completely died so am back to old school finger pricking and actually ringing people if I need to communicate with them. Hopefully new reader and phone arriving tomorrow. When I rang Abbott I spoke to a very lovely man in Morocco. We chatted for quite a while as he said he could get me a new reader for free if I had the original box and could read out a number on it. It took me quite a while to wade through the diabetes cupboard, but I came out triumphant! Hurrah. Like @AJLang I am spending the first time on my own in the house since March. Husband has been off doing site visits these last two days and both girls at school/college. Quite a weird experience.

Steph I’m sorry that you’re finding it quite weird. I’m not noticing Mark not being here as much as I thought I would, just hoping that he doesn’t get infected when he’s at the university.

A man in Morocco...

Currently cases of Covid-19 seem to be rising faster there than anywhere else in Africa.
