I was out in the gorgeous sunshine today accompanied by 5 packets of tissues, a nose spray, and eye drops. My hayfever has been horrendous all day. My nose is so sore, it feels like it’s been scraped all over with a razor.
Spent the day at my daughters place. My two year old grandson thought it highly amusing to tip buckets of water over us. It was actually quite nice and cooling. Dried very quickly in the heat. Very lovely day. Would have been even nicer without the hayfever.
I love the sun. Plastered a load of sun cream on before I left the house. Put it on the cat’s ears and nose as well. Poor little thing is all white with pink ears and nose. He tends to lie under the sun bed in the shade but I’m not taking chances. He wasn’t too happy about his ears being rubbed with cream. I had to corner him and treat him to a rare drop of milk afterwards.
The summer can get as hot as it wants in my opinion. I love it. I hate the cold. I have no doubt that I’ll be hearing the usual pensioners moaning about it at the bus stop. They’re always moaning about something – this is no exaggeration. It’s too cold; it’s too hot – they usually wear a coat in this weather; the bus is late; the bus is early; this is the worst bus service of all; their health is bad; there’s too many pigeons; it doesn’t stop raining; we need some rain; it’s too windy; the chilblains are hurting…The list could go on indefinitely.
I missed the sunshine yesterday as I was at work. It was bloody freezing in the call centre on Friday and Saturday. For some reason they’ve turned the air conditioning up very high. I often think they do things deliberately to make us uncomfortable. They seem to think it keeps us on our toes. It doesn’t – it makes us resentful.
I’ve been told by one of my retired neighbours that it’s usual for a company to try and split the workforce. According to him, if the employees are not happy they don’t work together against the company. Don’t know if this true. My neighbour has worked all his life and has been in the army. He does seem clued-up about a lot of things, and some of the actions of my company, recently and in the past, have seemed deliberate acts to set the agents against each other. They certainly seem to change the air conditioning to uncomfortable mode as soon as there’s a change in the weather…
