Blogging is weird. Sometimes when I haven’t so much as thought about my blog for a week, let alone posted anything, I get more views than if I have written several carefully crafted posts. Maybe there’s a lesson in there somewhere, like stop posting so bloody much! This, however, is not the reason that I haven’t been posting, it’s more the fact that I have been distracted a lot lately. Yesterday I was in Starbucks and I was asked my name when I ordered my coffee and I genuinely couldn’t remember it, my mind went totally blank. So it’s probably a good thing that I haven’t been sharing my thoughts with the world.
I have a lot going on at the moment; my parents are arriving tomorrow to stay with us for two weeks (nothing makes you feel grown up more than hosting your own parents) and also on Monday I have my biometrics appointment for my next green card. The biometrics appointment is where they take my fingerprints and photograph my face so that a year down the line (there are huge delays as always) they can issue me with the new green card that I have already paid for. Good luck with the photograph by the way guys, my hay fever has been awful and my eyes are going to be so red my photo will probably look like a nineties Polaroid shot.
Is it just me or is the pollen really bad this year? I’ve been sneezing and blowing my nose every five minutes it seems but no matter how many tablets I take I still keep sneezing. I sneezed 43 times on the train the other day (yes I’m sad enough to count) but the silver lining was that everyone gave me a wide berth so I had personal space which on my commute is so rare the only thing rarer is a train arriving on time. If you know any good ways to stop hay fever that don’t involve living in the desert or the Arctic or in the middle of the ocean then I would love to hear from you!
In other news I went to a town with the same name as my hometown yesterday and it was really weird. Being somewhere that has a familiar name everywhere but is really different to your hometown is a strange experience. I resisted the urge to get a photo taken by a town sign (mainly because I couldn’t find any signs) but there was a weird feeling of déjà vu every time I walked past a business with the towns name on it. It was much smaller and very different to my hometown but I half expected to bump into a friend or acquaintance every time I turned a corner.
Time to go and clean the house so my parents think that our house always looks this clean (they won’t be fooled).Have a good weekend everyone, and if you have some hay fever busting tips please feel free to let me know! *bless me*
