Today's things

I normally like to think I can cope with about one thing at a time. Nevertheless, today I managed quite a few thngs.

  • Had a call from an agency inviting me to go in and register with them tomorrow afternoon. They're out in Luton.

  • Went to the Jobcentre for my "Personal Adviser Interview". Nothing major, but it got me out of the house. Also, there's a jobs fair thing to go in a few weeks time (well, if I haven't found a job by then), and the suggestion was made that I could contact the post office to see if they've got any Christmas work going. I worked for the post office down in Chelmsford back in 1999/2000 over the Christmas hols. Wouldn't mind doing that again.

  • Went to the doctor's surgery. Asked about seeing a practice nurse so they could apply fresh dressing to my foot wound - the dressing that the guy at the podiatry clinic put on it last Friday wasn't terribly strong and came off over the weekend (in fairness, the long walk around the Eden Project might not have helped). Fortunately, they had an appointment available for this afternoon, so I got that dealt with. The nurse - who was one of the nurses who'd dealt with it when I was going to the surgery regularly a few weeks back agreed with my verdict that it's definitely healing up. So yay!!!

  • Whilst there, I picked up a prescription, for some of the antibiotics I'm taking for my foot wound, and then collected them from the pharmacy. So yay again!

  • Also, I checked up about the status of an application I'd put in a few weeks ago for a prescription charge exemption certificate (as my "current" one has actually expired). I'd thought that the doctor would sign it and then send it off to relevant authorities. Turns out it's my job to do so - although as nobody told me that, or even told me that the form was waiting for me to collect, I'm not sure how I'm supposed to have known. Still, have collected the form, which has been signed by the doctor, so my next task will be to bung it in the post. Actually, I'll do that tomorrow.

  • Ripped this to iTunes. It's not the most exciting CD in the world (it gets a bit repetitive as a lot of it's restatement of themes being...well, restated), but I rather like it. I've been listening to quite a bit of Doctor Who incidental music lately. Curse of Fenric, of course, has the distinction of being the first Doctor Who incidental score to be released in its entirety.

So, yeah. Quite a good day (certainly in contrast to yesterday, when I managed...well, hardly anything). And it's not over yet. Going to go and catch up on a bit of reading now.
