It’s been a very hot day today. I think it must have been about 41 celcius as I left work this afternoon.
I never mind the hot weather. My plants do though. When I got home I noticed that one of my trees had a rather parched look about it and I had to water it immediately. It looks a bit better now.
Yesterday I had to have a needle biopsy on my thyroid. It was done because the thyroid gland on one side had increased in size and so, as a precaution, they recommend a biopsy is done to ensure that nothing sinister is going on.
I had put off doing it because it was inconvenient but over the past weeks I have had pain from it and figured that I should just get it sorted.
Well, I thought it would be just like a blood test. Turn up, offer my throat and then they would get a sample. Then I would go home. Nope. Three people. Radiographer, nurse and the doctor. It hurt, brought tears to my eyes and cost me $600 (which made me cry). Then I went home, poorer and feeling a bit sorry for myself.
Still, all done so I can leave that one for now.
I was late to work today. Later than I wanted to be. I slept like crappity crap (what’s new) and after many nights of bad sleep I just had one of those mornings where it caught up. My head was muddled. I put on more make up than usual with the idea that I would look less like that walking dead. Then I was too tired to blow dry my hair straight and did a lazy weekend style.
So, when I left the house I had the thought I looked okay but the reality was I looked more like a cast member of “What ever happened to Baby Jayne”. Or the crypt keeper.
At work I had the concentration of a pea and after doing some shitty urgent things I then dedicated myself to doing the filing. A huge pile of filing. A huge and boring pile of filing. Tomorrow I have about another two hours worth and that will be it for a while. As much as I find filing excruciatingly boring, I do love it when it is done. I am so anal about it and take no short cuts. There have been many times when paperwork dating back years is required and I know exactly where it is. Not just that, my filing system is so user friendly that other people can find things without too much worry. Does that sound like I am blowing my own trumpet? Well, when it comes to filing I am just great. When I do it that is. And therein lies the problem. It can be a bit all or nothing with me.
So, today was very, very hot but I still went to a body pump class in the evening. When I finished the class and walked to the car I noticed how very still the air was. The trees were so silent. There was not even a hint of a breeze. Outside the air was thick with the heat. I drove home with the car window open, listening to music as the hot air filled the car. I love hot evening air.
I was listening to a lovely song. Calling All Angels by Jane Siberry. I played it loud. It seemed like the sort of music that suited a drive home on a hot evening.
Tomorrow is Friday.
Then the weekend. This weekend is a rather full one. An early Saturday morning to the Farmer’s market. I think my niece will be coming with unless she is too tired. Then a trip the the hairdresser’s.
Oh, isn’t that bliss.
On Sunday is the first training walk.
I think I am looking forward to that!
Although, it is more than likely I am lying.
