It's been a hectic few days as we prepare for the big shake-up and switch-around as people move to new desks/offices/buildings... Work reshuffles are a lot of hassle.
To add to it all, I've been trying to get a hospital appointment rescheduled, and have been unable to get through to the hospital by telephone or email. Very frustrating. In the end, rather than lose the appointment & get bumped and blacklisted as a DNA ("did not attend"), I have had to change all my other plans, cancel a long weekend off, and make arrangements to go in for my day surgery tomorrow. Luckily my lovely bonkers ex-flat-mate Kez is free tomorrow and can collect me afterwards and take me home - according to the info they send with the appointment letter, the hospital won't carry out the procedure if I don't have someone to meet me afterwards. The possibility that not everyone can produce someone who can just drop everything and schlep out to Fulham doesn't appear to come into their planning. But it will be lovely to see K again as we haven't met up for several months; and we can go home to chew the fat and put the world to rights over tea and chocolate biscuits if I am compos mentis enough...
Bitter cold still, and on Saturday night and Sunday last weekend we had snow in London. It's almost all melted now, but was very messily dramatic for a few days. The snowdrops at work and in my own garden have hung on boldly throughout, though.
Not looking forward to tomorrow. I don't enjoy going under a general anaesthetic. Obviously the alternative would be far worse - but I always feel really dopey afterwards.
