My hospital appointment on Thursday had mixed results. The short version is that I need to see the vampires at least twice more before they're even willing to make a decision as to how to proceed. I'm glad that the specialist is being thorough rather than dismissive, but I do grow weary of so many appointments.

Today I have mostly been doing housekeeping. I tidied my room some; there's a way to go, but the once-only-a-rumour floor has been sighted, and I have some clean laundry hanging up to dry for the week ahead. My internet access at home has not been working today so I've now retreated to the pub to sit in the sunshine, eat delightfully unhealthy food and use the wifi.

Some online housekeeping, then:

I do have a Twitter account. My username there is, predictably, song_in_heart. I am trying to maintain some semblance of anonymity so I'm afraid it's not public; if you want to follow me I'll have to approve you. If you've commented at all regularly here I'm almost certain to do so, if I can figure out who you are.

One of the things that ends up on my Twitter posts is haiku. This started as a joke among friends sometime last spring or summer and I've mostly kept at it, at a rate of two or three per week (more in summer, fewer in winter). They aren't necessarily very good but I like writing them, I like having to focus on what is in front of me and make it fit the syllables. In case some of you would like to read those without the rest of the chaff that ends up on Twitter, I've decided to start sticking them on a blog, Wandering Haiku. I'll probably update it once a week or so.

Waiting for results eh? And everywhere you turn another little prick... Where would we be without them?

If I did not have the NHS I would be destitute, either through paying for medical care or through being too ill to work.

As it is I just feel as if I need a secretary to keep track of my medical appointments. I'm grateful for the care but it is tedious. And let's just say it's a good thing I am not that fussed about needles.

Thanks for dropping by, Ostrich.
