Just an idea.....

For those of you that have the Demand Valve and find it a little challenging to carry when out, I have bought a cheap Laptop bag - it fits perfectly with room for spare injections and mouthpieces! It also protective as a Laptop bag is padded.

Great idea Liz!

It is a bit like wandering around town with a lively Boa Constrictor trying to escape (cue Colin!!).:bigsmile:

Er' indoors made me a designer draw-string type bag like the ones we used to keep our plimsolls in back in the day.  Still draws the odd glance, may be they think I'm going to pull out me recorder and do a snake charming act?? :jawdrop:  Confusing my Demand Valve with a Puff Adder (OUCH!) :loser:

aaaagh!  That's a great idea - and I just chucked out an old laptop bag YESTERDAY!!  I'm due back "in" any time so went on holiday with the demand valve in a carrier bag.  Haha!  Posh. Not.

Still the good news is I stayed remission and don't have any signs of that changing yet :bigsmile:

Long may your remission reign Dorothy!  When I put he valve in an open topped bag it seemed to take on a  life of its own :~  so I looked for something to keep it closed in and the laptop bag fitted the bill very nicely - cheap girlie one from TKMax!

Thank you Elizabeth - I like the sound of your girlie one but as I get short episodes, just about 5 weeks, I may find something useful that I already have in this tardis of a house.
