Twelve Degrees

That is the difference in the temperature since I whinged and moaned about it a day or so ago.

It is not as hot here as it is across in the UK. We have our cool sea breeze to thank for keeping it down to around 26C, but this is about as hot as I can manage.  Thanks very much to whoever arranges the weather, but could you please just not send us those thunderstorms forecast for tonight?

I had an 8:30  appointment at the GP surgery this morning for a thyroid blood test.  Although we are apparently COVID-free and now at Level 1, almost out of lockdown, there are still restrictions in place in healthcare centres.  I had to stand outside and ring the bell. The receptionist came to stand behind the marker just inside the door and told me to use the hand sanitiser then put on a face mask from the stack beside the door before I could enter and sit in the waiting room.  The waiting area was virtually empty, apart from three chairs well spaced apart. There was just one other person there waiting, also masked.  The nurse came out to call me through. She was masked, gloved and gowned and asked me not to touch the door handles etc.   She offered me a COVID19 antibody test along with my thyroid test so I said I may as well.  I should get my results tomorrow 

For those people who asked about my new haircut, this is me now....

  1. Sounds like your GP surgery is handling things wisely. Good on them. The lovely new hairdo suits you. It's like you are a style photo on a hairdresser's wall - apart from the mask of course!

    1. I was quite impressed by the health centre's procedures. Even though there is currently a very low risk, it was very reassuring.
      Thanks for the kind comments about the haircut. I certainly feel more comfortable now.

    1. Thank you Jackie, you are too kind. I definitely look better with the mask on. You look very glamorous in your profile photo so I am sure you look gorgeous in real life xx
      This afternoon our garden thermometer is now showing 30C, which is pretty amazing for us. I am indoors, hiding from the pollen! Sneezing fit to shatter the windows đŸ€§

  3. Your hair looks nice JayCee. I can't say "who cut your hair? Was it the Council?" That's an old Mike Reid joke😊.

    1. I was more than ready for mine. Another 3 weeks would be very frustrating.

  7. Stunning eyes. I've noticed masks highlight people's eyes more.

    1. The other good thing is the mask hides the under-eye bags and the sagging chin!

    1. Actually I pressed 'send' without thinking how silly that sounds. I'm sure YP would point that out too, given half a chance. I'm also sure that the rest of you is just as young as your eyes but I think that you know what I meant.

    2. Thank you Graham for all the kind compliments.
      As I mentioned in response to Addy, the mask covered my under-eye bags so made quite a difference to my appearance.
      Perhaps I should wear one all the time.
