Snow nowhere near as bad as forecast so no problems getting to the surgery. It's the nearest to a social occasion I've had for a year. Who would have thought that being in a queue of old people standing 6ft apart would seem almost like a party? I mean it wasn't as if we were even chatting to each other, no balloons, no cake, but even so.Got the call this morning inviting me for the jab (AstraZeneca) on Sunday morning. I'd been concerned that I'd have to go to the nearest hub thingy, which would have presented problems as I don't have a car, but I'll be able to have it at the surgery which is about fifteen minutes walk. Mind you snow is forecast so things might change. Normally I'd welcome the snow but you'll understand if I'm feeling a bit wary just now!
Furthermore as it's been a long time since I've had to go out in the wind and snow, and as I took the opportunity to dive into Poundland* for some milk, a tin of salmon and a bar of chocolate, it felt a bit like an adventurous 'hunting' trip as well.
Oh yeah ..... nearly forgot I had the jab (barely felt it going in.) So far no side effects.
*My visits to shops have been very few and far between over the last year.
And I still feel a bit bad about getting the jab ahead of shop workers.
