#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.

One-liner Wednesday – Going Cuckoo!

Cuckoo Clock – more accurate than my morning Cuckoo!

Earlier than usual, I heard the first cuckoo of Spring on my morning run. Summer’s just round the corner! Just as well I didn’t rely on him to tell me the time… he was so happy he got to 33 o’clock before going quiet again.


Pop over to see Linda, check out her rules for this midweek prompt and join in the fun.
