Having a cold (plus other things)

Yesterday – Thursday – morning I went to a recruitment agency in Belfast to register. That agency has public sector work contracted out to them and they also said that they’re in charge of the Civil Service recruitment for those with disabilities; it has been a while since I submitted my resumé for that opening. Plus, they might have jobs outside of Belfast; be a huge boost for me to get a job elsewhere as I wouldn’t feel confident enough commuting to Belfast and back every weekday.

I’m still dosed – as we say in Northern Ireland – and have got Co-Codamol to get rid of the worst of it. The temperatures dropped all of a sudden this time last week.

One good piece of news from this week was getting my driving licence; after almost seven months of wrangling with the DVA in Coleraine. I must buy them a ‘Thank You’ card for putting up with me. 🙂

Tomorrow I am planning to attend a BBQ. 🙂 God willing, it won’t rain. As gran used to say, “Rain, Rain! Go to Spain! Never show your face again!”

Sore throat

I have a sore throat. Yet I wanna keep going. I have Manuka honey and need to gargle on saltwater.


Today was a day to forget sports wise. Arsenal were well beaten by Chelsea and Ireland lost our six nations’ opener away to Scotland.


I visited a relative who had a lung infection is is still vacuuming now, she was when I knocked on the door.


Man Flu doesn’t exist for me. Whether or not that’s a good thing is up for discussion.
