In an ongoing onslaught on British cuisine (I’ve already caused the server to melt down by comparing earwax to Marmite), I’ve now zoomed in on your favourite pudding sidekick.
Years ago, I had my ears pierced, after which they started festering and to produce enough cheery yellow stuff to fill a tart.
Which brings me to infusion sets and their accompanying “open wounds”: Are you asked if your pierced ears got custardy before you can start pumping? Or does a pump-company allow you to “test-drive” a pump to see if you get custardy before the NHS “buys” it for you (or passes it on to Tim*)?
I am delighted to confirm I have never been plagued by custardy ears or infusion sets. I know some people do occasionally get a little infection type custard in infusion sites but I think a little antiseptic cream usually sorts it.
