A very juvenile thing to say, but pretty much how I feel right about now. I just drove 1/2 hour away to my not-so-local GP for a doctors certificate for work, and to get checked out, only to see a different GP I’ve never seen before. When I called up to make an appointment the Receptionist seemed reluctant to make an appointment with him … now I know why! What a jerk!! The last thing I felt like doing was jumping in my car and driving for 1/2 hour just to be told I should get back to work tomorrow (it’s my last working day before my ‘weekend’, which is Mon/Tue this week), as I should at least work for one day … then if I still don’t feel well I’ll apparently have to take some more time off work and I have to go back again and get some blood tests done, because “we’ve had to rush you through tonight” … what the?!!! I just drove all that way just to be told the equivalent of ‘take an aspirin and call me in the morning’ – I’m disgusted! The whole time I was talking to him about what my symptoms have been he barely looked at me. My mutterings to myself on the way home weren’t particularly complimentary! Can’t say I’m looking forward to my 6am shift tomorrow … Oh well, only one more then two days off again, I guess. I do have to admit, my muscle aches are a lot better than they were – but I haven’t eaten properly for two days, so I’ll try to get some proper food into myself tomorrow.
But today hasn’t been all bad – I still have my coat on from walking in the door, as I had to reply straightaway … I just came home to find an email from SB&B saying my pal Nicki has sent me a gift certificate in celebration of my job promotion – wow!! You could knock me over with a feather! What a wonderful email to come home to – I’ve sent you a personal email, Nicki, but thank you thank you thank you once again for such a generous gift – you’re a real sweetheart! And it really cheered me up after my GP visit 😀 And there just so happens to be a sale on at the moment … 😀 I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again … blogging has really introduced me to some of the nicest people in the world! Thanks Nicki! 😀
On the blogging front I managed to catch up on about 60 blog feeds today, but got fed up sitting in front of the PC, so tried to get some more stitching done ready to get my exchanges finished … but I found my stitching last night was out by one thread on the border – I couldn’t bear ripping it all out (over half of it!), so I just found a different thread and started a new one … this time I’m 3/4 of the way finished so I can try the finishing method I have in mind – and also see if the design will work OK with the thread I’ll be using for the ‘official’ exchange piece … have to admit, I love it in this new thread, it’s definitely very “me” – can’t show and tell yet, though, so it won’t ruin the surprise for the recipient … I’ll show you later, though.
Well, it’s soon going to be bed time for me if I’m going to have a 5am wake-up call, so I’d better start getting things ready for the morning. At least I can be comfy in my jeans at work tomorrow … ;P
Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend so far 😀
