I had one New Years Day evening - sitting chatting to friends and playing a dice game - an open box of Roses was passed round so I decided to have one - you know what it's like, it was 4 I think, so anyway we went back to the van and thought I better have some insulin so I did - but did I test before I did it? No!
Felt hypo a bit later, Oh flip 3.3. Pete passed me the Lucozade but I didn't want Lucozade so the only biscuits we had taken were Petticoat Tails - the fully circular sort marked in segments that you break apart yourself. There was about one quarter of a circle, but a bit lopsided, circa 2.5 segments. I enjoyed eating them - but no way were they going to cure a 3.3, so it was soon 2.8. So I swigged more Lucozade than enough to have cured it without the biscuits.
25.4 this morning about 07.10 am Liam! I tested because this was the third time I'd had to get out of bed for the bathroom in just over an hour. What a twerp!
We absolutely DO all do it, don't we!
I wonder if the gin, cider and red wine (not simultaneously) had anything to do with it?
The last twice we've been to the same place at New Year, we've played 'heckle the Quizmaster' - all lovely people who we don't heckle the rest of the year, so they wonder what's going on - so much easier when you've had a drink! - and both times got a higher score than anyone else so won it - either a box of chocs or biscuits, so of course we've never kept the prize, just opened them and passed em round so everyone wins in the end. Just good fun!
