One-liner Wednesday – Take a break!

Slow down otherwise you’ll meet yourself coming round the corner


I’ve been taking multi-tasking to an extreme and burning the midnight oil just for good measure. I’m wiped out and all out of inspiration except for the above one-liner!

This breathless and exhausted one-liner is part of Linda G Hill’s midweek challenge. Click here for all the details. Join in and have fun.

#JusJoJan 11th – I want one of those too!

Mr D received a letter in Saturday with NHS stamped all over it. At first we thought it might be to call him in for a ‘well man’ check, the type men have when they reach a certain milestone age. Then we thought it might be an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine, but he’s not old enough for that. The docs are still making their way through the care homes and over 80s. What it turned out to be, was a letter informing him that he is entitled to a free flu jab but that records show he hasn’t had one.

Hmmm. We didn’t need a letter to tell us that. Our local surgery hasn’t call him in for one yet as they are still doing the older age groups.

“Where’s mine?” I cried. “I’m older that you so I should be further up the list!”

So I don’t have a letter for a flu jab, but I do have a different letter, one telling me I’m being laid my full bonus for last year and a wee pay rise for this year. Now those are the sort of letters I love.
