Wasted day

I waited in for the repair man to come and fix my hot water all day. They never showed.

In the evening, I took Manasse to the vet's for his 6 months check-up. His heart is doing fine and his health overall seems to have improved quite significantly according to the vet, but now it seems his blood pressure is dangerously high. She's given me another set of pills and wants me to bring him in again in a fortnight. Oh joy.

Just when we got home, my mum rang with the news that my uncle Piet, my father's best friend and my mum's deceased sister's husband, had died of lung cancer this afternoon, 7 days shy of his 80th birthday.

*hugs* That does not sound like the best of days.

I've known better...but if I'm honest, even though I'm sad that my uncle's no longer with us, I'm glad he's been spared further suffering. According to my cousin Peter, who was there at the end, his father had been in terrible pain the last week or so.

Oh honey, life really needs to give you a break. *hugs*

Oh, I wouldn't go so far as to say that...

Maybe I'm just too sensitive or my memory is too selective *lol*, but on my flist I'm pretty sure you're the one holding the record lately for people dying, things breaking, pets being sick and other bad things. So I think you do deserve a break. ;)

Well, if you look at it that way, then...yes, it's high time something good happened for a change! Though I'm not holding my breath...

Sounds like you had a tough day.
I'm sorry.

Thanks. Though something's happened today that's so bad it sort of makes me wish yesterday could have gone on repeating itself forever. I could cope with that level of annoyance, really I could.
