World Diabetes Day 14th November 2012

It's  November and perhaps a time when the"Diabetic"community unite all around the world.

As we light up Blue what will you be doing ? 

Claudia will have been diagnosed 5 years in 2013. I often wonder where the last 4 years have gone. I have to say I do pray each day for a cure. We have our good days and not so good days. Winter I find more challenging as we dodge the sickness bugs, colds and flu. The Diva Claudia has picked up a cough from Purdey, needless to say we have had some interesting blood glucose levels over the last few days with impressive behaviour to match! (take Cover) 

Last year I cycled 155 miles from Portsmouth Diabetes Centre to Birmingham NEC. It was tough and the hills...................... just kept on appearing. I only fell into a hedge once. Of course it had to be a blackberry bush. Ouch. So guess what? Out of shear stupidity on my behalf I agreed to cycle again.
Am I fit ... No
Have a practised enough... No (Loz is going to tell me off!!!)
Am I looking forward to the hills... No
Will it hurt.... Yes
Will it be fun....... oh yes
This year as I am working I have booked the 2 days as holiday. Work think I am nuts.
