Unfortunately, the evening was taken over rather by work. I didn't get away from work until 19:00 and then was back in from 22:00 until 00:15. It was all because a customer had contacted me at lunchtime and asked that we print a job for him to be delivered by lunctime today and that he would like to print with us for at least 6 months. Needless to say I pulled out all the stops, the team did a great job and I think we have a happy customer.
Of course today was/is St Valentine's day. I got a nice heart card from my daughter and a box of diabetic chocolates (Thorntons) from my wife. Although the latter are not meant to be that beneficial, I am eating them in moderation and they taste pretty good.
Below is the receipt I got for the Valentine's card that I bought:
Finally, I have managed to keep my diabetes under better control today and am experimenting this evening, find out what low blood sugars feel like. I tested my level after supper and it was 3.5mmol/l. This is hypo territory. I haven't treated it yet as I want to see how it feels so I can spot it under less controlled conditions.
Had a lovely note from a friend today, full of support for my diabetes and its diagnosis. It is great to know that people are thinking of me. I am not finding it too difficult at the moment, but I tend just to get on with things and don't always share my full emotions. I am sure that there will be some moments when I am depressed but these will be the exception rather than the rule. Also continued to talk to various new diabetic friends online about all manner of subjects.
Sorry for the excessive ramble today, but had lots to say! More soon...
