There was a very high tide this morning. It was right up to the side of the road in the Loakers (Blackrock's salt marsh). There were lots of ducks swimming really near the road but, as I was driving, I couldn't really look at them. I would love to have stopped and watched them for a while, try to identify the species (with the aid of my lovely new book of birds that I got for my birthday) but I was already late for a doctor's appointment. I wish I had blown it off and watched the ducks instead, I would have got as much help from them and it would have been much more pleasant. My usual doctor (who is lovely) was away and her locum prodded me and poked me and then said I was healing and he wouldn't do anything for me. I don't go to the doctor easily, so it was annoying to go through all that and not even get some medical help. Ah well, I suppose my ear will heal. Apparently the left ear is connected to family, so maybe I haven't been listening to my family recently and that's why I have an ear infection! Moviextras has a photo shoot and member recruitment tomorrow in Dublin. There have a lot of movies coming up in the next few months, including the movie of PS I Love You and a horror. I'm tempted to go, but my meloncholic temperament tells me it is a waste of time.
