Yesterday the HSE sent me a text message beginning: “Anne age 53 years, keep well this winter.” To be honest, it’s not the perfect greeting. Nevertheless, it was a reminder to me to book my Covid booster appointment which I did yesterday. I got the jab this morning and the whole thing was seamless from start to finish. My vaccinator was an Italian from Bari and I got to practice my Italian to boot (he moved to Ireland, to a small town in Galway in late 2019 – oops). I did not even feel the needle go in and so far so good on side-effects other than the standard sore arm.
To be honest, I kind of wish that I hadn’t decided to take the door off the bathroom cabinet this afternoon but other than that, all is well. And the weather is beautiful. An opportunity for another builder to attempt to fix our gutters at enormous expense. Expect more of this exciting content over the next month.
