    Hope you arm recovers soon.

    I had a flu jab for the first time ever on Wednesday, I've always refused previously, surprisingly my bloods didn't seem to rise but my arms have been really painful. Had Pneumonia jab as well so both arms affected.

    We went out shopping the day after and a guy in one shop was testing with a temperature gun, I said that I had just had a flu jab the day before so wasn't sure whether my temp might be elevated. Apparently it was lower than normal as was my hubby's.

    Ours are doing vaccines for the over 65s, for those under 65 I think the quote was "October if there is any flu vaccine left."

    I had mine done by the pharmacist he has had the flu vaccine in for a week but it took him a week to work out logistics of covid 19 safety and the regulations and guide lines that came with it, the pharmacy is next door to my GP's surgery the doctors are not at the moment doing face to face appointments consultations are by phone. It might be worth asking your local pharmacy.

    Few days in hiding. Wednesday 6.1 , Thursday, 5.8, today 5.2.
    I blame the pesky insect that snuck up and stung my face, making me look like a greedy hamster.
    Have been recommended a bread poltice. Snag, we don’t keep bread in this house.

    6.8 followed by 7.1 for the last two days. I've been snacking on cheese before bedtime. I need to stop.

    6.2 Friday

    Having a bit of a break from my screen due to dry eye. I could light up a room with my right one! Too much time on twitter ;-)

    Happy Saturday to all.

    A surprising 5.3 today
    I hadn’t realised it was flu jab time already either. Thanks for the tip about the pharmacy @JohnEGreen . As an NHS worker I always had one at work OHD organised them for everyone, now I have to remember myself.
    @Pipp hugs for the swollen painful face. What a horrible place to have been bitten - there does seem to have been a plague of nasty biting insects this year, especially horseflies.

    Good morning all,

    @Pipp -- Hugs for the swollen face, hope you caught this nasty insect and have taken some revenge. By the way, in Germany we often use chamomile tea bags (rather than a bread poultice) to deal with slight infections. I once had to run around with one on an infected eye (yes, GP prescribed rather than an antibiotic), it worked but I really can't stand the smell of chamomile since.
    @JohnEGreen -- Hope your arm gets better soon -- this does sound very unpleasant to say the least.
    @Debandez -- Hugs for the dry eye.

    Blood sugars were 4.7 this morning.

    Enjoy your weekend everyone.
