    I’ve made it! Seven decades today. Didn’t think, in the early days, that I’d last this long. And a friend reminded me that 70 is 21 in celsius. No complications, woohoo.

    Of course you have! Who has ever heard of a fairy godmother with complications? It simply wouldn't fit the story :)

    Morning ... just
    I have always wondered why anything would be described as the best thing since sliced bread when slice-your own bread always seems to taste some much nicer. I learnt yesterday as I tried to slice the last bit of the just starting to go stale sourdough. My thumb got in the way!
    It was one of those occasions when I didn't stop to see how much blood their was - I just shoved my thumb in my mouth and headed off to the bathroom to deal with it. It seemed to stop bleeding and I applied a plaster.
    Until I went to the gym. My raised heart beat meant the blood was pumping fast enough to break the seal and the sweat was enough to loosen the plaster. As a result, I had to clean up the mat and kettle bells and request a replacement plaster. I decided to avoid strenuous exercise today in case it happened again although it seems to be alright apart from not being able to use my left thumb. It is amazing how often a right-handed person uses their left thumb. I had to ask for help to get dressed this morning!
    Seems to have pushed my BG up so I am running on a temp basal and working out what to have for lunch which does not require any chopping.

    Thanks for the offer.
    Unfortunately, it is a bit late - the steristrips would have been great yesterday but I think my finger bandage is working today.
    I managed to keep the blood away from the loaf ... and ate it. The loaf that is ... I only ate the remainder of the load. The blood was mostly mopped up with a wad of tissues and I don't like the taste of tissues.

    @Mel dCP .
    You had me worried with the crouched cake.
    I was slowly scrolling up when what should appear? Only the top of your picture, for a split second I feared the worst and knowing how the sense of humour works on high I was expecting slapped wrists for you.:):)
