Exercise last night could have gone better. I got about as far as UCD before realising that I wasn't physically capable of walking there AND getting exercise just yet. It'll happen but not for a while, its kind of alarming how quickly my condition has deteriorated from six months ago when I could jog that distance easily enough. My efforts to quit smoking entirely aren't doing too bad though, I'm down to about seven a day and thats decreasing all the time. I figure, as followthebird said, if one a day is good enough for Johnny Depp, its damned well good enough for me.

This evening I will spend another eighty quid on doctors and medicine in my ongoing effort to avoid septic eyeball death. I will also NOT think about the amount of cash I've spent on this over the last couple of years because that would be depressing - is there some scheme to refund the ridiculous amounts of cash I've spent on doctors? (not medicine, I never seem to go above that limit).

Following my efforts at 3D modelling over the weekend I'm feeling pretty confident, I might try a bigger project now, something a little less geometric..ey. Or I might stick with that model and try applying a skin to it that isn't uniformly beaten metal.

If you exceed IIRC E250 in one year you can claim back via med1 forms. You can include with this your pharmacy bills - if you haven't kept them but go to the same pharmacy they might be able to pull your bills from their system (the pharmacy I go to that know me by name do this for me yearly)

Claim back some tax that is. Which reminds me - must get forms to do last years.

the easier for me solution is to go to the cabinet in the library where I work and pull out a copy 8)

They do say you need the last 6 years of recipts so they must randomly audit people.
