TA there's a thing on rte news about an Indian train station worker who saved a child who had fallen onto the tracks. Which is great, but no matter how many times I watch the video, it really looks like the adult who was with the child was pretending to try to save him/ her but quite obviously moving further away? Is it just me?

Unbelievable. I'd to tell mine last week that if they went ahead with plans to meet relatives then me, OH and their grandchild would be isolating from them for two weeks..OH also asthmatic and I'd explained my concerns about the covid / stillbirth risk. Still resulted in a row. They just thought ah sure we're alright Jack we got our vaccines

Currently doing a course for work, and all the slides have Americanised spellings, all z's instead of s's! . The presenter and company are English. Grrr....

Ah. I feel really bad now, didn't realise although, it's been updated since I read it so that's probably why. Happy ending at least.

I got a taxi to my doctor this morning because I was running behind schedule and didn't want to be late for my appointment. I arrived on time but the doctor didn't see me until 40 minutes after my appointment time. I should have known better. Why are so many doctor's offices so poor at time management.

For some reason there's a cafe near my apartment that's fully open. You can sit down at
a table like normal times. I was there last weekend. The food was disgusting but i can give you the name if you fancy an overpriced horrible lunch

TA i forgot to turn the water on for my bedtime shower. It takes 30 minutes heat up and i was aiming for an early night.
