Recently I started helping with the beta testing for a diabetes logging Android app – MySugr. I’ll burble on about the app in a future article – *spoiler* it’s quite good – but it’s been the first time I’ve properly logged my diabetes for ages.
Many years ago I went on a sailing holiday in the Mediterranean (yes, I am hopelessly middle-class) and I took charge of writing our boat’s log book. Having the attention span of a brain-damaged gnat, I quickly bored of noting down the wind-speed, the water depth and where we had anchored, so I made up an entirely fictitious account of our journey.
According to my log book, our 32-foot yacht was beset by raging storms, we were visited by mermaids (who made us salami sandwiches for lunch, as I recall) and inevitably we were attacked by pirates in the exhilaratingly-named Blind Man’s Gizzard cove.
