Today has been one of ‘those days’. You know the one. The one where you feel like you’ve moved stuff around but not really gotten anywhere. The one where you feel like you’ve spent most of it on the phone to various customer services people. And still not gotten anywhere.

Yes it was one of those days. Things I have learned today….

  • Some systems are just flawed. Once you’re in them, it’s ridiculously hard to get out. 🤬
  • Energy prices are insanely expensive. 😱
  • Airlines can cancel your flight and leave you stranded. But it’s OK cause you can get a refund. 🤦🏻‍♀️
  • Customer Services is a bloody hard job.

So after several fruitless conversations, I headed out for a hack to clear my head. It was a glorious day with lots of autumn sunshine.



I’ve had a frustrating day. Was meant to hack with a friend, but the weather put pay to that. We took a rain check till tomorrow instead.

Arrived for my 5:30 blood donation appointment to be told they’d sent me a text to say they were cancelling it due to staff shortages. I checked my phone. Text arrived at 5:07 while I was driving there.

They said they’d made the decision at 10:30 to prioritise other blood groups. Phoned to complain. Again. Second time this has happened now. Last time I didn’t get a text at all.

Never mind, thought I’d go and lunge Buddy. Then remembered I had a webex at 7pm. Dialled in and it had been moved to 8pm. Doh!

So my day was been a fluid as the weather.
