I had the drama of taking my insulin thinking

.. “I’m going to make a cheese toastie, I’m really craving one.” I take the insulin, knowing the carb ratios, then get to the break only for it to be out of date - I didn’t realise because usually break is just something my mum picks up… I’m not lazy I swear my mum just had a hip replacement and I’ve been shopping and getting everything for dinners with me and my younger sister cooking, but I just didn’t think about bread now I’m rummaging through the cupboards to make up something for the carbs I bloused for!

As long as the bread isn't mouldy it will be fine. In fact slightly stale bread makes better toast/toasties!

Tip for the future, keep bread in the fridge it'll last at least a month! I laughed when my sister told me but I've been doing it for ages and a loaf of bread lasts me ages.

Try to not take your insulin until you've started making it, or just before you eat. I actually don't take mine until I've finished now as I have stomach issues and don't always finish my meal but I've been put on Fiasp as it's really quick acting.

We don't use much bread so keep it in the freezer, and just take out slices when we want it.
