    Morning all, it's my birthday and I already don't like it. Mattie was ill overnight so had to make a trip to the vet this morning; my usual vet not available so had to go somewhere else. Just a stomach upset she thinks but although she wasn't sick, I had no idea one puppy had so much saliva (sorry, tmi) which apparently is a sing of nausea. fortunatley everything that came out the other end managed to happen in the garden, but not a great night and a vet's bill too.

    Added to that, when I woke up at 5 this morning my left ring finger was itching like crazy and I realised it was swollen. Managed to et my wedding ring off just in time; I now have a cartoon fat swollen finger so I assume I was bitten by something in the night. I've already met someone local who's been bitten by a false widow eight-legged thing with a horror story to got with it so I obv scared myself with that idea but it hasn't got any worse so I imagine I'll recover just like Mattie.

    And woke on a 7, fine, after trip to the vet's (at which the little baggage of course behaved as if nothing at all was the matter) 12.7 - stress or what!? Grumpy? Moi? Nah...

    I’ve encountered an omnipod wearer - he too chose it because there are no tubes. His work would make tubes problematic.

    Happy Birthday @hh1 ! (you're also sailing close to the wind mentioning a certain 8 legged animal!) - hope swelling goes down and Mattie gets better too.

    I must be doing something right, 5.8 before breakfast and 6.0 3 hrs after - bound to go wrong now I've mentioned it!

    Morning - just popping in to congratulate @CranberryIce on her new arrival, wish @hh1 a happy birthday and a better rest of day and hope everyone else has a good day whatever they're doing.

    Think someone has kindly given me a cold so my insulin has turned to water and I've had to just stare at the banana I wanted to eat an hour ago and have treated the bolus I took for it as a correction instead. Harrumph. :sorry:

    She will do when she's old enough to go for long walks. At the moment it's the frutrating stage where she can't go off-lead as I can't guarantee she'll come back, and she can't go too far until she's older. She'll definitely be up for it eventually, she's a breed that needs plenty of exercise.
