________________________ A BIT FED UP __________________________
"A bit fed up" - which doesn't mean that I have had a lot to eat. This photograph was taken earlier this year (about 6 weeks ago I think) somewhere on the road to the Italian Lake district. It was very hot, my dodgy knee hurt like hell and I was very tired of walking. But this moment didn't colour the whole trip which was interesting, enlightening and very enjoyable. Christine and I enjoyed it immensely. I posted this photograph because of the look on my face - and tonight I am fed up. I have just spent about four hours up at the local hospital getting checked out - stuff to do with my heart. I spent a long time waiting while connected to about four million wires and other beeping monitoring equipment. I watched a continuous display of my heart rate, blood pressure and oxygen uptake, a morbidly fascinating view when there are a dearth of magazines to read. I was dealt with promptly and efficiently and then had to wait a veeeeeeeeeeeeery long time for the test results. So that's why I am fed up. My current face looks like the face in the photo. Fed up. And now its half past eleven at night and I am going off to have a good sleep. Bugger all this bloody health crap - I am really fed up with it.
