I managed to get most of the haibun down, then I made lunch. I ate lunch, watched some quizzes on TV, went to pick the car up, shopped for ice cream, returned home and ate ice cream whilst watching quizzes on TV.
I also tried filling out an online form for an accountant. It didn’t work, because despite their high hourly charges and proliferation of staff, they hadn’t sent me the all-important activation code. Nor, it seems, had they sent me the email explaining what to do.
Fortunately I was up to the task of cutting and pasting a code number into a box and filling in badly designed online form without the necessity of an email explanation. However, the whole palaver did take 24 hours when a simple email request and reply would have taken ten minutes.
If you think I have unleashed the occasional outburst of spleen against government and the NHS, wait to see what happens when I start on accountants. I may be constrained by the laws of defamation, or I may actually bring those laws into the discussion so that I can give an opinion on lawyers.
Time to go, as it’s nearly midnight, so I will let you off listening to a rant.
Couldn’t find pictures of vampires or leeches on the free photo site so I thought I’d reuse the creepy fog photo.
