Every now and then, with most jobs, you get a day off. It's Thursday tomorrow, which means the day after is Friday, and then comes the weekend. Hurrah! I have some holiday days to use, which means three whole days off coming to me as well. Double hurrah! Everyone likes a day off, and everyone needs a holiday from time to time.
Shame that diabetes never takes one, isn't it? It really is. It's happy enough to be with us all the time. Even when it's an inconvenience, it's there.
I would like a holiday from diabetes. If you know where I'm coming from when I say this, I'm sure you're more than ready for one too.
But we don't get one, do we? It's for every day of every month, of every year, 24/7, including Christmas Day and Leap Years. Now, whilst that would be a great thing for a plumber or similar, sometimes you'd just like a break.
I've been looking at the Diabetes 365 project, and thought that I would really like to give it a go. I know I could just use my camera phone, but my heart is holding out for something slightly more exciting. However, my budget, brain and purse are telling me no, no, no. But what is really interesting is seeing these every day snapshots of people's lives as they manage their lives and their diabetes. Because, hey, none of us get a day off, but it's interesting to see what we do with out never-ending days on!
