No D Day.

October 1st is known as "No D Day". I don't know where it started, but found out about it through George's blog and have decided to take part. It's a day when we write about something that's not diabetes. Because, after all, there is more to our lives than diabetes! So, in bullet point fashion, a list of my favourite things:

  • Blue - the colour, not that band from the 00's (although, when I was a kid, my friend and I were pretty big fans...)
  • My family.
  • My friends.
  • My Godson - of the many names/nicknames I go by, "Auntie Vicki" is one of the favourites!
  • Going to the cinema - you can't beat seeing a movie on the big screen.
  • Reading.
  • Languages - I'm a French and Spanish student, this was gonna be on the list.
  • Tea - it makes everything better. Honest.
  • F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Such a great tv series. There's a quote from that show for every situation!
  • Starbucks. 
  • Whatsapp - with this I can text my friends abroad. Awesome.
  • My ipod touch.
  • My blackberry. 
  • Pesto - Pesto pasta, pesto on toast, pesto in mashed potato, pesto as a salad dressing. Basically, I love the stuff.
  • Doctor Who. Huge fan.
  • NCIS. Love it, love it, love it! 
  • Harry Potter. The books and the movies. 
  • Brownies!


  1. I enjoyed your list. We have a lot of favorites in common. I too like/love starbucks, NCIS, and brownies. As well as my family and friends. I have never heard of No 'D' Day but I think I'll participate too. :)

    1. Hi Elizabeth! Thanks so much for your comment! I'd never heard of No D Day either until I read about it on George's Blog which is linked in my post. I just love the concept of it - we spend so much time writing about our lives with diabetes but there's clearly so much more to our lives than that!

  2. Harry Potter! LOVE IT! must check out that app too. I love getting to know everyone in a new way. Thank you for sharing!
