Today we had some special friends visit and a little chap from Benedict's old school joined in the fun. We had hot dog sausages in buns with a side serving of chips. Pudding consisted of jelly and ice cream and a slice of chocolate birthday cake. Benedict as usual got a bit giddy and helped himself to extra cake when my back was turned! It was very difficult to gauge the correct insulin dose and consequently I erred on the side of caution. This of course back fired and I've been chasing ridiculous blood sugars ever since! Still, on the whole the proceedings went well and the party bags went down a hit - plain white T-shirt, a box containing transfer sheets and fabric crayons, a packet of chocolate stars, two balloons and a piece of birthday cake.
A tiring but very enjoyable set of birthday celebrations. Although we have other birthday's in between, the next big bash is Sara's 21st birthday in November, so at least I and the bank account have chance to recover!
