Another early morning made earlier still by the need to cook oats for breakfast and make a packed lunch. Don't get me wrong, I understand the value of packing a lunch, but I normally have much more convenient options. In order to live on this amount of money it is necessary to choose the least convenient options that require the most preparation.
What is it with my timing? Last year when I was living below the line I was embarking upon a horrifying series of injections and blood tests required for uni before they will allow me to interact with the public. This week, it so happens, is the tail end of that process. I had a blood test on Wednesday to see if my Hep A and B immunity was all good, then today a nasty little TB jab which forms an itchy blister under the skin.
