    Argan Oil works really well on scars. Almost too well maybe lol. I have been using it on my stomach to make sure I don't scar from my pods. I had a rash of some last year that didn't work well and I wanted to make sure it wasn't me forming scar tissue. I also made sure I use it on my 44 year old larger appendix scar.

    In placing my last pod I looked for newer territory by looking for the "dots" from more recent insertions. I found a nice soft spot and placed it. And then for the next 2 hours watched my BG go up. So I changed my pod and realized it was on the end of my appendix scar. Which actually feels like soft skin now. So the argan oil is working really well. Eventually it might even be new territory!

    Hi all, a few busy days here, toad rescue included! @Marie 2 what news on your fostered girl? Has she been claimed yet?

    I'm getting on well with Fiasp but I do miss having a half-unit pen. I think you can get them but I was prescribed a pack of pre-filled first to see how I get on with it. If it carries on like this, by the time I've used them up I'll be looking for someone to give me a permanent pen, then I can go back to being more precise about dosing. I hate the thought of wasting insulin, though I'll already be doing that with the Humalog I've still got. Bit of a dilemma really. Do I recall someone talking about a way to send unused insulin to people who have difficulty getting it?

    Thanks @karen8967 that's reassuring. If I stay on it I can say with confidence to my DSN that they're available. Cheers!

    Happy Birthday! @Robinredbreast

    I believe it is anyway???? Someone here has the same birthday as me and I think it is you lol.....I’m not doing anything special. My hubby brought me home yellow roses yesterday as I have always loved yellow roses and daffodils. If the sun stays out we might go snorkeling.

    @hh1. No one has claimed her, I am losing hope on that now. I’ve picked up many strays over the years and some are so well behaved, I don’t get people.

    So I am still trying to figure out whether to keep her. My heart just isn’t in it, but I’m sure I would care given time. But she fits in and my other dog plays with her like crazy.She seems to certainly be trying, she snuggles up right next to one of us every night in bed.

    Oddly enough, I had a text today from my surgery..

    Mine's booked for next Wednesday.. No idea what type of jab it is..

    My wife, coincidentally has a "screening thing" in the hospital nearby at the same time? So so we plan to make a date of it...

    Happy belated birthday @Marie 2 and to @Robinredbreast if it was indeed your birthday.
    Up at 5:30am as hubby is going for vaccine at our football stadium very early doors. Letter came yesterday, booked immediately, will all be done less than 24hrs later. Amazing! How lucky we are with the set up in this country. Booked an early one as he has plans this morning to find a gold crest flying around on his local patch.

    Hi all, belated happy birthday to @Marie 2 and @Robinredbreast!

    @Marie 2 she sounds as if she's fallen in love with you, even if it's not working the other way yet. Losing a dog - and suddenly - is devastating. It's a year and eight months since my last one died,and she still has - and always will have - a special place in my heart. Whilst I love my new girl, it took a while to build that bond and I did get her(too) quickly after my last one (who is still my avatar). Tough decision. Keep us posted.

    Hi all, toad patrol has eased off as it's too cold for them to move in the evenings right now. So no trotting up and down with the torch and bucket, and no new people to induct tonight (which I was meant to be doing).

    Nothing else to report here except it's wonderful to see the sun! Have a good day all.
