Thanks for popping in. Feeling a bit ropey after the vaccine on Wednesday, so I am calling it a day and going for a nap again. Listening to the body and all that jazz…
Perhaps it’s because I don’t take any kind of medication, so the body doesn’t know what‘s hit it. Or perhaps it’s because I have never had a flu jab. Or perhaps it’s because I am burnt out and my resistance is low. Who knows. Tell you what though – it still beats the alternative! I’d much rather feel a bit rough for a couple of days if it means that Covid can’t kill me! Very grateful actually. Let’s hope that the hospitals feel the relief very soon too.
I have to say – and I don’t usually voice my political opinion – I was dismayed to hear that nurses are being given a poxy 1% wage increase. WTF ??? That will probably cost the tories the next election. What an embarrassment. They were presented with a perfect opportunity to DO THE RIGHT THING. Instead of seizing the opportunity to actually SHOW their appreciation for all that those poor hospital staff, they slapped every nurse, frontline carer, ambulance driver and NHS worker (or should I say survivor?) in the face. What the hell were we all clapping for every Thursday? Do the tories actually think that a pat on the back and a heartfelt clap is good enough? I am furious with the government for making such a piss poor call.
They had the chance to do the right thing – and they blew it. Unless of course, they intend to give each and every one of them a £10,000 bonus and a 4-week holiday. That would be about right. Grrrr.
Love and Hugs
