[IPk] Bristol.

Hi All

As John mentioned in his post, Bristol has started with 6 people having 
their first day of training, today (Thursday) me included - back to 
tomorrow for the second day :-)

It has taken a while to get here but I think it will be worth it. So far so 
good, apart from a hypo this evening but that was probably due to a 
combination of my long acting insulin still being active and starting with 
humalog in the pump.
