Inside our school however it is work as usual and the concern is more for the exam on Friday - if we don't pass we have to go back and pay another month's fees to repeat. This class has 4 Turks, 4 Germans, 1 Indonesian, 1 Chinese 1 Pole, 1 Italian and 1 Orcadian - the other is a Swede - handy for clapshot!

Did a big sum this morning, think I have had over 40,000 injections since I first started on insulin in 1981 - 30 years ago today. If I keep this up for another 20 years I get a medal. They won't care if I have missed a few. I am not complaining - I am ALIVE and I wouldn't be here without the work of Banting, Best Macleod and another Orcadian scientist who retired just before they announced the Nobel Prize for Insulin. Anyway I am happy to have insulin available until they can do the islets transplants (which have already cured one lady in Scotland) - just think, if it becomes available before 2031 I won't get my medal, but then if I am sorted before then I can have a chocolate one instead - every cloud has a silver lining! No picture - sorry!
