Pretty TastyTraditionally I’m not one for the reflective entries. Frankly I’m not one for the entries at all. I’m more of a Blogs Cow, grazing around others entries until the inevitable day when I am shot and eaten. At least I will be pretty tasty.

However, I feel compelled to jot a few things down, if nothing more than a todo list to remind me of all the things I said last year that I would ‘sort out next year’. Now it is next year. I’m as surprised as you.

In no particular order (as represented by the Unordered List)

  • Finally get all things transferred to the new house. I’ve been living there 6 months now and its getting a bit ridiculous. Tesco and West Bromwich need doing this week. Done.
  • Above includes registering at the docs. This is more difficult than it should be because I’ve never done it before, so I need to go to my old docs to get some sort of card-thing.
  • When above is done, get all the things that either are, or I think are wrong with me checked out. Dan said that when he registered they did a check anyway. That could be a long day.
  • Sort out where to live after July. Done done done. I will now be resident at The Fort till at least July 2008. Hopefully the shower will be fixed before then.
  • Go the dentists. Haven’t been to one of them in about 10 years. In my defence the last time I went I had 4 teeth pulled so I’m not exactly rushing this one.
  • Sort out employment. This one may be sorted already.
  • Sort out pension. I am now an Old Man and therefore need to think about when I will die, and the time between finishing work and then. In all seriousness the state pension is a joke, and as a temp I need to get this sorted on my own.
  • Learn to drive. I’m almost 23 so this one really should get taken care of. Even if I don’t want to drive anywhere in particular, I should at least be able to.
  • Try to drink less. Bugger that, I’ve changed my mind.
  • Get a new phone.

This list will probably be added to as I remember more things I spokes.

  1. Hmmm, yeah I need to sort most of those things out for myself too. But then offices to sort out things are only open during the time I’m at work :-)

    You shouldn’t need a card thing. I successfully ‘lost’ my medical records at the start of last year. I’ll teach you to drive!!!

  3. Dan also needed to pee in a jar for the new doctor. I suspect your local doctor likes making work for themself. I went to the doctors to get the things I think are wrong with me sorted in the summer. Apparently there’s nothing wrong with me, so I have to figure out how to cure them myself. GRRRRR.

  4. They wanted my pee too! A bit forward of them, but I fooled them by never returning with my pee jar, even when I got seriously ill. HA! Who’s laughing now? (It’s me)
