I love Wednesdays and visiting desks ..... I must remember not to phone the Doctors's Surgery until after I have 'signed in'.
I am in need of new tablets - in April I had a heart 'incident' which meant I spent the day in hospital and am now taking a googly selection of tablets - so, in my simplicity, thought I would find out if they were on a repeat prescription or if I had to order them. I phoned and gave them my number (D.O.B, quite Scriptural as the Book of Revelation says we will have numbers) so that they could find out my name ..... I then explained that I wondered if my new tablets were on Repeat Prescription, the receptionist spoke over me so I had to stop speaking to listen to her and the upshot of it all was that I was soooo upset over this 'me trying to say something and her talking over me' when all I wanted was a yes or a no.
She couldn't give me one lot of tablets because the computer said I was too early that shut me up
Finally, after much 'discussion' the answer was yes .... I can go to my Chemist and pick up my tablets.
What a to do! I am left angry, upset, my blood pressure must've gone through the roof (yet again after talking to them) and I am now in tears as the pressure is released and I am venting out to you all.
Why do I not change Doctor's you ask? 'Cos I live in an area where that surgery is the only one I can reach without a car ..... I do not drive or ride a bicycle and there is no bus to the only other Drs near to me.
THANK YOU - I feel much better now ............
END OF RANT .......
Let us talk of better things ...... my desk (or dumping ground)
I was creating some 'fairy' ATCs when I was called out to visit a DIY shop (wallpaper, wallpaper, wallpaper...). Wallpaper samples later were cut and placed into red edged rexels and put under a weight to flatten. Then, when looking for embellishments, I found an article on Ribbon Embroidery, this has to be revisited.
On the way to Crunch (Craft at Lunch) I popped into W H Smiths. as one does, and saw some ribbons at 24p a roll so they fell into the basket along with a mag (four embossing folders free!). I did make it to crunch where we made an 'envelope' photo album wrapped with a band - a piece of red paper in my case!!?!
Eagle eyes may also see my Summer of Colour ATC still on my desk and the envelope to a WOYWW 5 ATC sent from Dianne (midteacher).
I will tidy up at some point today - if it rains - otherwise I shall be working and it will have to wait until tomorrow!
So that is my desk for today - messy but happy.
I am thankful that Julia is back safely amongst us, nay leading us, and is hosting, once again, all these desks (so varied and noisy!) More WOYWW info can be found at the top of the page.
Thank you for visiting and listening to my rant - or skipping past if you're wise - have a good week with lots of laughter .....
