Have to have blood tests today and possibly a doppler scan to see if I have a DVT. How nice so close to Christmas! :?

The 2 Clexane they gave me last night were not pleasant injections so am really hoping the tests are clear or I face at least 6 weeks of injecting myself twice a day or even worse treatment - urgh.

Fingers crossed.

How are you supposed to generate warm water when the boilers broken? Urinate?

Today I'm with the kids while the wife does her last day at work, tidying the place up as there are toys everywhere and watching endless episodes of Agent Oso, Handy Manny and other cartoons for those in the know. :D

Yeah we've got a brand new boiler, pipe leads outside for the excess water and of course its frozen. Used a hairdryer over it and it worked, of course a day later its frozen again so just have a bowl underneath getting the water. Local plumber said hes had tons of calls about these for the combi boilers.

Have you took the pipe apart then and just stuck a bowl outside to pick up the water?

Today is the first time since Saturday that i've felt well enough to come onto the laptop due to being knocked out ill. Spent all day Sunday in bed asleep and didnt eat anything for nearly 48hours, still feel like crap as well, going to be a fun Christmas.

Was also fun yesterday as had to get up at 6am to get into Newcastle for a job interview. The day before nearly all of the trains heading into Newcastle had been cancelled but luckily some were running yesterday, though on the way back home I managed to get the midday train which turned out to be the second to last before they cancelled them all in the afternoon and evening.

don't see it as being "stuck" see it as an oppertunity to have an extra good look for a job! :)

Today I took the baby Christmas shopping in Birmingham. I got the train in from Longbridge as I didn't fancy driving into the town centre, The lifts were out of order at the train station so I had to carry the pushchair down a long icy flight of steps. A bloke who was with his young family offered give me a hand (which was nice of him) but I managed ok. The bloke had the best neck tattoo I've seen in ages...

He was with what I assumed to be his girlfriend/wife and three kids who were old enough to be able to read. Awesome tattoo.
