Oh, I also had to pay for an outbound covid test (£66) but then the Irish government decided that’s not necessary until inbound flights from tomorrow (because 2 or 3 days make all of the difference) 😡
I managed to book a later flight (costing a whopping £35) and have headed straight to the airport whilst my face was still numb.
The anaesthetic has worn off and I’m now in a different kind of pain. Hopefully, the antibiotics I’ve been prescribed will help somewhat and I can enjoy my mini-break in Ireland.
My friend has been staying at his family home in Ireland for the last few weeks and with my long weekend and flights to Cork only £4.99(!), it would have been rude not to visit him. I’ve never been to Ireland before.
However, two days ago I got toothache and tried to ignore it until last night, when I was almost crying with pain.
I couldn’t get hold of my dentist so found a private one in London and ended up with root canal work 😧
Today I’m “spare”, along with another driver. There are three more drivers “spare” in fairly quick succession from around 13.00 onwards, so I’m hoping there’s no chance of being given any work today.
Me and the colleague who’s in now have already worked out which bits we can do for others to get them a longer lunch break or to get them home earlier 👍🏻
I was parked on double yellow lines to pop into a shop earlier and as I came out, two traffic wardens walked past.
That was my cue to quickly apologise and jog over to move the car but one of the traffic wardens shouted to the other “quick, stand in front of the car!”
Luckily, the second traffic warden hesitated which gave me time to jump in and drive off. I never knew traffic wardens could be so aggressive 😮
