Barbeque here, then over to a friends place to watch the first two episodes of The Legend of Korra and Game of Thrones.  The easter egg hunt is happening on Monday at my folks place.  Show night is usually on the Monday but I'm going to stay at my folks place for a few days so it's been switched to Sunday.

Drink coffee and maybe walk to the shop to buy the Sunday paper.
We don't do the easter egg hunt/thing as I have a child that has intolerances to alot of things and I want them to have a sleep in the arvo so I can.

Sorry, but this phrase is not at all amusing and actually pretty offensive. Any "diabetic coma" my daughter may go into would probably be as a result of sickness, resulting in a trip to hospital and probably ICU.

People with Type 1 diabetes do go into coma and die, it's not funny to those families living with this disease.
