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.
