Early Morning Erections in the Mist





We have Art in our midst again in Tynemouth and very nice too , though this morning the mist made it a little tricky to appreciate . And truth to tell from a distance the installations look a little like tellytubby whatsits , but no matter , they had everyone and his neighbour's dog talking . The four structures represent the salmon's journey up the Tyne and more pictures may follow tomorrow . The one in red represents the eggs ( of course , what else ) , the woody one at the top the fins .
My post yesterday about the duck egg and the omen is all coming true . Besides the lottery win ( teeny tiny so far but its a start ) , I heard last night that two of my friends have been matched to adopt at last ... such amazing news . They've been waiting to be parents for a while and are now a step closer to having two little ones move in with them . More on this when there is more news .
And after a bit of a rant last night about my consultation yesterday with the migraine specialist ( which left me feeling less than hopeful ) , in stark contrast to the last visit six months ago when I saw his registrar , a fellow sufferer who was far more human , spoke to me like a person with half a brain and actually gave me some strategies rather than asking me why I have taken eight doses of pain killer this month ? " er excuse me because I had severe headache .... ? what would you have done ? ( Yes , its a tricky one but the maximum recommended number you should use per month is five ) ... and when I've had five then what ? Sleep it off ...... "yes , would truly love to always do that , but I have to work , have a child to care for blah blah , and with maybe fifteen days of headache a month its a lot of time to be in bed ? I will lose my job "
I was going to say after a bit of a rant last night I feel much better . I fully recognise that it must be irritating to be a doctor and unable to "cure" a problem but ......
Several things this morning have made me laugh ...... one was Carol Midgely's article in the Times about the no frills airlines ..... finding myself abroad and with no flight home has never happened to me , maybe I've been incredibly lucky but her descriptions made me laugh out loud so I attach a link for you all Nightmare on easyJet: what happens when your no-frills flight becomes a no-fli hope you enjoy .
