Monday

1. What fun – I was down for various things pulmonary today, then heart this afternoon but a call came saying it needs to be postponed because the nurse is not qualified to do it. I did not chuckle bitterly.

Actually it was great because the weather is great and I need to be building, checked my man is still selling epoxy, all systems go. Went to town for food shopping.

Downstairs, one letter from the hospital and one from the government/council.

Hospital

They want me this week for an MRI scan. Nasty – injection in you, forty minutes in a chamber, they can hear your screams apparently. Lovely. All for my tinnitus.

Council

That one stumped her. No, it’s for …

Now I don’t believe them because I already did that late last year, as did everyone else – household members etc. So why yet again, even before borough elections?

Soup

Most fabulous French Onion and mince with everything else thrown in too.

Boat

Ready to restart tomorrow, gorgeous weather coming up.

Journalists’ brains show a lower-than-average level of executive functioning, according to a new study, which means they have a below-average ability to regulate their emotions, suppress biases, solve complex problems, switch between tasks, and show creative and flexible thinking.
