Today is Wednesday 10th February

Late start to my blog and my Today is………… post due to fun and games with a new energy supplier. This was not by choice, but that our existing company has been taken over by a bigger one, so all admin things must change.
I have to be honest, it was not exactly painful and pretty straightforward once we got to grips with Windows 10 not liking PDF files, signing in to make new account passwords, and checking our own details. Nothing should change in our monthly payment apart from the recipient name, the smart meters will still do their thing, our contract is the same fixed rates, and I have a new contact email and phone number.

We had an email from our MPs office about the farce of Matt Hancock’s bombshell the other day about the over 70s having to make their own appointments for Covid jabs.
Our neighbour’s anxiety hit the roof, but we’ve made her an appointment 30 odd miles away and will take her.
According to the message today, it turns out the on-line and government number can only provide appointments at NATIONAL vaccinations centres, but local ones can be made through our doctor’s surgery. I nearly fell off the settee laughing at that one as everyone here has received text messages from the surgery saying NOT to contact them for vaccination appointments. Oh boy. Am I going to have some fun letting everyone know! I have already gone back to our MP contact and told him that our surgery will not take such calls. Waiting to see what the response to that is.

Diabetes check today, so I have weighed myself and taken my BP so as to have a rough idea when I get there. My pee is a superb colour and I am well hydrated! Tick, tick and tick, so all down to bloods I suppose. We shall see!!

Hubby has done well today with Complan, runny porridge and a gingerbread teddy. The yogurt wasn’t such a good idea, but we have a theory about that as it is full fat with cultures, so might be too rich.  I have no idea what to have for my lunch as my appointment is at the stupid time of 13.12 (don’t ask how they worked that out!) so too late to nip in to the supermarket. I’ll find something anyway.

Take care and keep safe everyone.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    So how did the diabetes check go? 💜

    My husband works at the County library and they are scheduling appointments for the vaccine for people who don’t have access to a computer or lack the computer skills to do it themselves… He has been very busy. He is hoping that by the time they are giving the vaccine to the younger crowd he will have less to do!

    • That is wonderful what you husband is doing. The online and 119 service can only arrange appointments at the National hubs, so no help to our local residents with no transport or limited mobility. We’ve had a result from our MPs office though and are spreading the word………. and details of HER website and a direct number.
