It is with ill-disguised excitement that I’m overwhelming proud to announce your soaraway Shoot Up’s new diabetic events calendar! Woo!
Over on the right hand side of the page (and by clicking here) you can see every diabetes-related event happening in the UK, as long as:
a) we’ve been told about it
b) we’ve bothered to add it to said calendar
If you want to tell us about an event you can have a look at the guidelines (such as they are) and then drop us an email to either of us or to our fancy-pants new email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
If that weren’t thrilling enough (readers with a fragile disposition may need to be sitting down for the next part) then I’m also frothing at the mouth with glee to announce Shoot Up’s inaugural meet up in Edinburgh on Saturday 28th November 2009. We’re announcing it quite early so our American friends have time to organise time off work, flights, entry visas, vaccinations, quarantine, etc., etc.
So come November, not only can you have the opportunity to meet me but you can also meet my esteemed co-writer Alison who is travelling up from the wilds of England to be here. Also present will be popular guest writer Katie (aka Tim’s wife) and the non-contributing but moral-supporting Alison’s hubby. Not only that, but Tim’s pharmacist will also be there, for some reason.
We’ll be meeting from 7pm onwards in Au Bar (it’s a pub, so over 18s only – sorry youngsters) on Shandwick Place, Edinburgh, EH2 4SD and we’ll try and keep the diabetes talk to a minimum. More details can be found on our Facebook events page or you can email either of us.
All are very, very welcome, so see you there!
