Hugs to everyone who needs them! Glad it was successful, Jennie, and hope you recover speedily and can soon snow, blow your nose, and sleep!

We're not even two days into 2019, and my nephew has broken his arm, my washing machine has packed up, and there are Australian Open injury traumas. Someone please tell me that bad things happen in threes and the year is going to get better from now on!

The washing machine packed up mid-cycle (it was possibly not a great idea to ignore the funny noise it's been making for the last fortnight), so the washing was soapy and sodden, and I ended up transporting it to the bath to be rinsed and squeezed - I feel like Ma Ingalls, except that she probably had a mangle and I haven't!!

Horrid for you Alison. I hope nephew recovers smoothly and the washing machine is repairable.

Sadly however one thing I am fairly sure of is that this year is not going to get any better...it has annus horribilis written all over it :cry: :cry: :cry:

One of our recycling bins was not emptied on Monday. Nothing new in that, we live at the end of a close and the bin men seem to assume that the man doing the opposite side of the street will empty our bin. I duly went on to the council website and filled in the form to report a missed collection. 2 days later I received an email to tell me that my case was resolved because the bin men had said that the bin had not been put out. Since our bins are usually emptied very early in the morning I always put them out on Sunday. There was no way to reply to the email, so I again went to the website. It has been set up in such a way that you have to select a department for your complaint, If you pick missed collection it takes you right back to the form you filled in in the first place! I suppose I'll have to wait until next Monday for the bin to be emptied and not be able to 'enjoy the 2 day return service' for missed bins. Rant over.

That's a new low in council responses, Chris - very tiresome!

I go spare if the washing machine ever packs in. End of life as I know it!

Dog who is thirteen and a half and whom I adore, took ill on Boxing Day and we had to get a special vet's appointment - her balance. Could have been serious and we did not know for sure for a day or two but mercifully was a thing suffered by older dogs that more or less rights itself. Felt really anxious for a few days though.

Mother who is in a care home also had to go for an emergency DVT scan yesterday. Turned out she didn't have one! NHS 24 docs out to her on two consecutive nights as she had pain in first ankle and then shoulder.

Daughter who is doing a postgrad course went back to uni yesterday. She was a bit anxious last term so hoping she will be ok this one. She is 250 miles away.

All minor stuff but loathe this month anyway, have less to do than some other times of year and overthink. Oh dear!

Well, the pronunciation often seems to be Janu-worry and Febu-worry... wishing good luck to those who need it, for dealing with problems large or small!

I overthink all year, but January does always seem to be stressful. Hope your mum's OK, Audrey.

Many hugs and good wishes to all who need them.

I was hoping that 2019 was going to be a good year, the powers that be had decided that I was allowed to apply for a job with the same rights as my colleagues and it turned out that there were two that appealed and I spent a lot of time crafting my “expressions of interest” for each post. SLOC was then looking them over as I’m still having problems finding the right word and finishing sentences coherently.

I shouldn’t have felt positive. I had an MRI on 21st Dec that was supposed to be the sign off one from last year, and was told I’d hear from my gp (and not my consultant) sometime in January.
I got a letter from the consultant on Friday saying that some anomalies have been found and that I have been booked in for further scans. It doesn’t say evidence of a new bleed has been found so I am holding on to that but I’m now wary about putting in for the jobs if there is still an unresolved issue...I know I have to apply or it is considered I am resigning but it all feels more stressful, and stress makes my problems worse.

I’m now in limbo until I get the new scan date and have to cross everything that all is ok and that no dates clash.

As ever thanks to all for listening, and thanks to anyone who works for the NHS as I think you are all amazing.

Oh dear, I'm sorry to hear you've had this setback. I hope you get a date for the scan soon, then at least you'll know where you're up to, and that it turns out to be nothing serious.

Oh, Norfolkbookworm, that really is the pits, and I can see exactly why it saps your energy for applying for jobs. I do hope it turns out to be something and nothing in the end, but meanwhile will keep you in my prayers.

The washing machine is sadly RIP. A new one is being delivered tomorrow. The nice man said that he'd ring when he was on his way and that it shouldn't take long to fit, so at least I can get away with a late dinner hour rather than having to ask someone to house sit for hours!
