    I guess I need to pass your "hug" rating to the guinea-pigs tomorrow, right, @Marie 2 ?

    Yes they will. They will be squeecking and whistling below my kitchen window as soon as I enter the kitchen, expecting yummy things to come down from the window...

    (edit: Scueacking? Sqeeking? Squeacking? What word is this? Can't get it right :bookworm:)

    @Antje77 Well, the hug was for the fact you still can't use your hand well.

    But the poor guinea pigs, taking their cherished food..........................

    Thank you! Slowly getting better but still no clue what's wrong with it. Looking forward to the ultrasound come tuesday, even if it doesn't tell us anything it will be real cool to see the inside of my hand :)
    I know! I may try cutting some grass for them, they love that as well, but I have my doubts on using scissors or clippers.

    @Antje77 Well good to hear at least it's getting better, even if it's slowly.

    Morning Robinredbreast that’s good to know. Although the Avatars haven’t changed so I can still identify the posters.

    Morning all, looks like another yuck one.
    I had some very weird dreams last night and can still remember odd bits of them but I'm not into dream analysis so shan't try to get any meaning from them.
    My BG is as silly as my weight. Here's to another week and another self-promise, it will come down:hungry:

    @Kim Possible .
    What’s with this working week? Holiday time up here in the East Mids. Chilling out today.
    Was in kitchen doing the obligatory basal in the butt injection when the roofers turned up. Don’t know who was most surprised. Me looking out or them looking in.:)
    Gonna do the guys sausage and onions cobs in awhile then me and oh will try and squeeze a lunch out if possible.
    Skipped breakfast today in anticipation of a wholesome lunch. Still required 4 Novorapid to counteract feet on floor.
    For those of you at work, have a good day.
    For those not at work, have an even gooder day.:)

    Morning all, Friday I was feeling 'heady', Saturday awoke with full on 'man flu' - OK so it was just a cold, it didn't stop me doing anything but was glad daughters football match had been cancelled the night before - standing in the rain watching them loose 5-0 probably wouldn't have done me any good, did the pharmacist run around trying to locate latest prescription for testing strips, no one had it, but Boots had received my usual monthly one, tablets and strips and did that for me (so todays task is to speak to someone sensible at my GPs surgery to find out where it is), had friend round saturday and cooked a curry, apart from the cold Sunday went as planned and a very nice day it was too. Sister, Pub, came back to the smell of a roast pork dinner, ate, 'stuffed', reminisced - I think Dad would have liked his birthday.

    BGs have been troublesome, what with the cold and probably over indulging.

    This morning woke feeling relatively well! and on a 7.something :woot:

    @slip. I think the sniffles have been doing the rounds recently. I had them for about 48 hrs end of last week, nothing bad just more inconvenience.
    Was only saying last week that since moving house and GP’s finally my repeat prescriptions are becoming hassle free.
    Not a big fan of Well pharmacies but credit where it’s due. The current pharmacy are starting to prove to be quite good. I seem to have made a friend of the main pharmacist, we have a chat and joke. It all seems to help. Originally I had to give them 24 hrs notice prior to collecting my prescription, nowadays it’s ready when I go in. It all helps relieve some of those little annoyances that type 1 throws our way.
    Have a good week bro.:)

    Morning all, nothing much to tell. Blood sugar just doing what it wants, but mostly within reasonable boundaries, rather than anything too unacceptable.

    I don't mess around with getting my prescriptions delivered direct to pharmacies, I just don't trust anyone in the chain enough. Though the doctor is just round the corner so I just drop a repeat prescription request off on my way to the shops when I need to. So it's minimal effort, if it were more effort I might try these methods.

    Have a good day, everyone.

    Monday morning again, the weekend flies by. Sold out of the Iced coffee at 1.30pm yesterday, good for Sainsbury's, but a quiet afternoon for me.
    School run done, but we had to take the scenic route back home, as there was an accident on the A road and the tailback was huge ! down a country lane, very wet weather, driver had to put his brakes on as a deer was on the road, it was so close, but startled and manged to jump back through the hedge and into the field, it looked so beautiful.:)
    Rain is easing up a little, but need to get on with some house cleaning, wont take long to long, then lunch :hungry:
    Hope you all have a great start to the week :)

    Oh and other news, it's PC Andrew Harpers funeral today so half the city is closed down - big (as in BIG!) police presence (well in fact I've never seen so many police in one place anywhere before) although on my route into work this morning the traffic wasn't bad, suspect the other half of the city was struggling - sadly I had to walk half my usual cycle route because of the road closures - I'd hoped they'd allow cyclists during rush hour but not. Hope it all goes well today (He lived in the town I grew up in)

    .........when it's lunchtime in the office and you realise that even though you reminded yourself to replenish your stock of needles before leaving home in the morning, you didn't actually do it :banghead::( (where's the hungry emoji?)
