Cows go Moo!

Arg. It's been such a hectic week and I'm feeling completely overwhelmed right now. I have done the foolish thing of attempting to navigate my way through the UK health care system. (Nothing seriously wrong.) It's been so incredibly aggravating... I'm sure there's perfectly logical ways of doing everything, but of course I'm not able to find them because I don't know them, and no one thinks to tell you these sorts of things. So, no one I know can help me sort this stuff, and it's been a frustrating bit of trial, error, and banging my head against a wall.

But things are better now.

I never thought I'd say I missed the Canadian health care system, but I did this week. In Canada, I would know where to go, who to talk to, and what to say. It took me three days to get that sorted here. Three freakin' days, because you need to first register with a practice, and then you can't get in to see them until the next day at the earliest, and they don't make appiontments at any point in advance.

But in brighter news, I may win a cow!

I may have bought the ice cream simply because it said "You can win a cow!" on the side...

I will name my not-yet-mine cow Cow! Cow the cow.

...

Yeah, anyway. Still sorting things for Aus. Sold a bunch of books today, and have plans to get rid of more things tomorrow. It's a very draining process. I wish that I could just do it all quickly and be done with it.

This is weird but having just started a blog of my own (waltzinmatilda.blogspot.com) I've gotten addicted to searching out other ppl's blogs!!

I lived in Scotland for 3 years (mostly on the Isle of Skye) until I had to return to Australia just over a year ago...I am in the process of looking for work back there asap and you're blog has made me so homesick for the place I've been blubbering all over my computer! You sound a lot like me...

Hope you have a fantastic time in Oz - don't forget to come to Queensland!

God I'm an idiot - so that's what the boxes are for????????
