    4.2 cold still streaming think things like colds definitely last longer and harder to shift when diabetes is involved !!!

    Hope you feel better soon Joyce. Diabetes does effect our immune system. It weakens it and makes it harder to shift bugs when we get them. Oh well back to my normal three times a week antibiotics today.

    Hi @loulou99782. I remember doing paper machie at Sunday school when I was a kid. Loads of fun. Used to blow up a balloon, cover it in the paper machie, paint it pink, then pop the balloon before adding individual sections of an egg carton to make four legs & a snout. A painted pink pipe cleaner for a curly tail, draw eyes & a smiley mouth and that finished it off. Lol. How mad that I can remember everything about it. I obviously enjoyed it. Have fun at the holiday bible club. Sounds a nice way to spend some time. X

    5.6 this morn

    Not too bad after some carb creep over the last two days of leaving house without prepared snacks/food.

    I'm thinking this diabetes stuff is cheaper for me in the long run including the test strips, I don't eat out so often. Bonus. Have a great day everyone.
