I normally pride myself on being organised, and in control of things. But today everything seemed to go wrong. I have had two back-to-back colds and I have just caught an ear infection that might take a further two weeks to overcome. I noticed that my hearing was not quite right yesterday. It felt like I was underwater, or that I had been flying. But I managed to get a call back from the triage nurse today and she prescribed steroids when she saw me and examined me this afternoon.
But as I was on my way to the doctor's surgery I dropped my phone. I retraced my steps and still couldn't find it. Then when my husband got home from work he noticed a voicemail from a gentleman who had picked it up. So I'm glad I had my husband as my emergency contact in my phone (ICE: In Case of Emergency). I rewarded him with a box of chocolates. I was so grateful, as I had a few forms of ID in the sleeves of my phone cover, including my medical exemption certificate. It would have been a pain replacing that. So I have learned a few lessons today. One, don't keep any ID in my phone that would be hard to replace, and two, don't drop my phone!
I'm hoping for a better Friday!
