Not the 13th?

4/17/2018 Syl's bucketlist 0 Comments




After a sleepless night this night was good. I slept deep and relaxed, .....until the neighbours started to makes a lot of noise, hammering like they were removing tiles in a resounding bathroom. Bye sleep!!

It gave me time to do some chores in the house, and then I thought to app one of my sons to come in this week when he's in the neighbourhood. He was here within a few minutes.
We talked about what I wanted and then he suggested to do some more in the garden. The trees need cutting and pruning and I can't do it myself.
We worked until I was far too tired, and had lunch.
Half of the garden was filled with branches.
So the son went and I made a lot of branches smaller with garden scissors. Until I had too much pain in my back and needed to sit down.

Then I checked my mail.
Never should have done that.

I have been away from my mail for two weeks.
Good decision to relax a bit, but bad for the piles of mail I found.

Quite some changes in the volunteer work... meaning: extra admin. And I hate admin. Just looked at the titles of the mail. Will read them the next days.

Mail from the dentist: I failed to show up at the appointment.
Tss... in the process of making an appointment she  must have written down a time and date, but she said it was not possible to have two appointments after each other (as the dentist wanted) so moved to the 24th.
I was called two weeks ago that I failed to show up and we agreed it was their mistake. So matters were settled. And now this?

Mail from the health insurance. We agreed on automatic payments, but this mail stated they would not receive an automatic payment for over 220 euro, so I should do it myself.
Why did they manipulate me in automatic payments when I still have to watch my mail as a hawk to see if I need to pay something?

Mail from the weekend event... I was just going to cancel my presence...
Couldn't...so I'm away from friday to sunday evening, talking about medical, technical and other improvements in the medical world.
Had to cancel a few plans for this weekend.

During my talk with the politician he told me to contact one of the local organisations to ask them if they would pay for a training as 112 centralist. I've always wanted to do that job, I know I can do it.
Got a mail back. They tried to find my file and they couldn't find it. Right.... There should not be a file about me.
So this lady mailed me, calling herself the trouble shooter. In case I'm on benefits or I'm not eligible for benefits I should meet for an intake... blablabla.
So I mailed her back that I'm not trouble, so there is no need for a trouble shooter.
That my question is very straightforward. Either they pay it, and I need to get registered and when they won't I don't want to be registered. Told her I'm 62, want to make a life for myself these 5 years I still have to work, but when they're not going to pay I stay stuck in this marriage and live poor.
I'm sick of  'mail us with your questions' and get a reply like: make an appointment. They could have said that in the first place.
For someone from that department reading this: state on the site: 'In case of a question, use this mailform to contact us for an intake, making a file about you and deciding if we want to hear your question.'

Mail from the home owner.
They want to tree gone. They accept their responsibility and asked for a quote: 1600 + euro.
And as it was in our garden and we had a responsibility too, they would split the bill in half!!!
No way!
I'm not going to pay 832 euro and 2 cents.

I googled the firm they mentioned...it was not to be found.
Cutting whole trees and removing them would cost about 1000 euro here, so that's far less.
So I wrote a mail back, stating we took the responsibility to clean away the junk that tree caused and took care of it by not using the ground around it, not to damage the roots. So that took away a lot of pleasure in my garden.
We wanted the trees gone when we arrived here, and we could have done it ourselves. No costs involved.
Bloody hell, I've paid rent 30 years....
I bet they haven't even been here to see that tree, but just base their request on the wants of the neighbour.
The tree can't be moved now anyway, as there is a dove and a young family in there...

By that time my heart was racing.
And I was a bit breathless.

Had a quick look in the other mail. A few weeks before the mail of the home owner I got a mail with a questionnaire about this new home owner... haha!!!

Then my dance-daughter told she was not among the chosen for the educational trip to Scandinavia.
That's the second time they pushed her aside for a trip. Made me angry.

And my second son told that their memorial jump in a re enactment event in France was cancelled due to some misunderstanding in the past between the present organiser and a person who is no longer among the para group. Some old misplaced grudge....

And then I heard someone say on TV: in half an hour Holby......
So it was dark... I had forgotten to make myself dinner...,  forgot to take my meds....

Said it on the app and my second son was just back from photographing an accident, also skipped dinner and brought stuff here to cook.
It was nice.
But I kind of saw Holby half....

Me oh my, what a day!!!

It isn't the 13th, isn't it?
