Thank you all for your birthday greetings, I've been a little busy this weekend with celebratory lunches and teas, much more my style than wild parties. I have also been very tired for the last ten days. By last blood test tes for my diabetes showed up Vitamin B12 dficiency, apparently it a common side affect of the Metformin I take for my diabetes.. The most obvious symptoms is Breathlessness and utter weariness, it is easily controlable by 3 monthly injections of B12. The first one bucked me up very quickly but the affects wore off about 10 days ago. Luckily I was due for my second injection on my birthday and it did give me a little more energy but it has taken a couple of days to get the full effects. I may get round to posting a little more often in future.
