Yeah, I'm a little stressed out today, things didn't quite turn out the way I needed after waking up feeling sick... the sickness disappeared quickly but an uneasy, dislocated feeling has taken hold of me most of the day and it's bothering me no end. Work was crap, usually is these days but today frightfully more so than ever. I've been looking around, quietly, at job opportunities (scarce, expecially at my age) and have even considered a career shift (tricky, more complications than needed but perhaps worthwhile if done properly).
Eldest Daughter is one of my worries at the moment... she had a bout of glandular fever (mononucleosis) three years ago but she's starting to exhibit the same symptoms again. She hasn't been to school since Monday last week, being just too tired and lethargic to really do anything meaningful up to now. She had a slight fever so we thought it would be a mild flu but since yesterday she's been complaining about a sore throat, which for me got the warning bells ringing. She went with her mother to the hospital for a blood test, of which the results will be known early next week so perhaps we'll have a little more clarity then.
And at the end of the day, no trains... a signal defect somewhere, and after much umming and ahhing a couple of trains were mustered for the impatient masses, who got to play sardines for almost an hour... damn, we didn't need that at all.
