    I don't think there's much wrong with the atmosphere when we can have a laugh and be T1 supportive

    My usual pharmacy said there was a delay of 2-3 weeks on sensors. I ended up getting my husband to collect 2 from London.

    On a positive note woke up to a 5.9 this morning and apart from a spike around 2 hours later its been fairly steady all. Now at a lovely 5.2

    Call me weird ( I get called worse ) but as much as I love being hooked up to my Dexcom I really enjoy time away from it.
    Just spent 7 days “ senseless “. I find it keeps me more in touch with what my body is actually telling me.
    Glad I’ve managed to raise a smile:).

    Happy afternoon to you all,
    BG climbed high during the night and double figures this morning, as I was worried about someone, but afternoon has been much better and number's pretty good.

    Here is little Wispa having a lie in

    Hope this photo is ok I don’t want to offend anyone

    I have a pet Tarantula called Tara she’s cute I don’t want to pose her with Wispa because I think Wispa might eat her

    She cuddles up, she’s only tiny and only allowed in bed as a treat for an hour before I get up
