Diary 25th January 2016

Mom was to collect me for the Driver’s License.

So my first port of call was the Garda station. I was afraid the Garda would notice the days of my OLD passport as I can’t find the newest r current. That went well. So my next was to go onto

NDLS(National Driver’s License Section). As I had failed to bring in a Proof of Address that THEY wanted, I was placed on rejection list as I failed to have a proof of address. Like I had brought in a proof of  address from my bank, but it was a Correspondence from the bank. They wanted a STATEMENT.

Bike

So Mom left me at the bike shop. However thou when I arrived, I was hit with a €30 bill. I was charged an extra €20 although he took a fiver off at least that was something. When he mended the old tyre it burst on him and hence he couldn’t get my permission to meet me know as he wasn’t given a contact number.
So then afterwards, I went back to bed for the whole day until my appointment tomorrow with Social Welfare in Óisín House.

Diary 20th January 2016

Today was a semi-quiet day. hahahah. What I mean by that is simply put I was to go to the Dr.s Appt to be precise the Blood Test. So I headed down their. When I was getting one of the Blood Test I noted one of the tubes wasn’t filling up fully. So I joked perhaps all my blood has been taken, hahhaah. But axs it happens its just the structure of the Test Tube.

So onwards to my next errand. Which was to go and get my NDLS Driver’s License form filled out my the Cops ie the GArdaí. However I regret to say that as I don’t have a passport with me or PHotoID, they weren’t able to fill out at all.

So that said, or moving on as one would say, My next errand was to withdraw more money for my expenditure. hahaahah. So I went tot eh ATM only to find out that it wasn’t working. So perhaps they were maintaining it or whatever. So I went in. Withdrew. Then I said I may as well ask. When I go to log into my INterent Banking Account, they at times ask me for my Home Phone and Work Phone. Of which my House phone, my OLD phone were in use. So they updated needed information.

Then afterwards, I then headed as I only remembered on my way that I was to collect my glasses. THen on the way I decided to go and get the GoPro aswell while I was at it. hahaah. ON the way of getting my glasses  I noticed this boat like statute I took pics of it, by plenny it. hahaahah. So then I got my glasses refitted. hahaah.

Then on the way back up to PC World where GoPro was to be born, mmmm, I encountered a 1916 Memory Tour bus which by the way costs €20, but anyways I took a few pics of the bus in question and of course the old style bus they are now using for Tourist buses.

I then went to PC World, so then I went to get one and I was told it don’t come with a MicroSD card at all, not even a Built-in memory, so I asked what’s the recommended size of which I was told 32GB HC. Then I wanted to get a stand for the actual GoPro. I would have had just the bare amount, unfortunately the Insurance was what took it all away. So the salesperson was telling me that I would be able to bring it back if anything happens to it. So to be a smart ass, I asked what if I literally drop it on the ground and stamp on it. Well the laugh I got. hahaha.

So then I headed towards my bike from Specsavers, I encountered Amnesty International. I wanted to subscribe to them, however I was tied for time, So I went to Specsavers, did my business, then I went back to collect my bike, before I head on off, I approached him. I asked that I sign up. He was quite taken aback. Highly appreciative. He’s never had anyone approach him, cause normally they approach the people etc.,

However on the way to PC World, I encountered a shop known as Jean Stop, whereby they were selling clothing and of particular type. I was interested in the undies that has “explicit” sayings like “Av ya seen my nuts”, “Makin’ bacon”, etc., etc., So I went with Av ya seen my nuts.

So then I went back on home. In the meantime, I noted thou that it was 13.04 in which my time to finish the recording I had left on while I was out.

So then I decided. to get my food shopping done too. hehehehe. So I rang Mom as she has a car to help me with my soon to realise €145 in Tescos(€71), Lidls(€24) and SmallChanges(€50.55). Then I realised that I had left my Coffee and Cereal behind. So I went back out to Tescos in Drumcondra to SOCALL get my Coffee however they were too expensive as I left behind more coins. hahahah.

So then I popped into Centra to see if I could get any coffee, but as it happens, they didn’t have. I then went into Pizza Dog, to get meself some hotfood. While waiting, a woman came in to hand in her CV. The worker who served me, was talking to her. He asks for experience etc., HOWever thou, she was wanting to apply for a driver’s job. When the woman left, he told me, a woman driver abnormal, something like that. I didn’t like this tone. So I said back to him: “Times are achanging man”.

Then I came back home to get some needed rest. hahahah. I then started to undo the shopping that I got. and put them away into Freezer, Fridges and the dry food too. hehehehe

Diary 19th January 2016

Well today was quite a day. hahahah. After my hibernation, mmmmmmmmmm, I was to get up for half 2 so for to get ready for my doctor’s appointment. However I had to get up slightly earlier as the rubbish that was against the door, where I left it yesterday, I spent time in moving some of the rubbish. And putting stuff away. hehehe

So I headed to my drs appointment for to get him to fill out a Medical Report for the Driver’s LIcvense. He told me that there’s no need for me to get a Medical Reporter as my General Health hasn’t changed since my last driver’s license issuing. I said what about my back or even my “Lovers” ie the eyes. hahaha. The back he was very against it. He went on by saying “You don’t want to drive”, I said of course I do. hahahah. So he said don’t put it down. So he got me to read letters as per the Eye report.

Then onto Drumcondra to get my big Mother of a savings. I went to credit union, and I said to him I’d like to withdraw from my account and leave a couple of euros to keep the Account opened. So that said I gave him my Member number and he said that’s back in the stone age, ie donkey years ago. So with that in question he asked for security questions. Apparently I had left out the digit 4 in my membership number. hahaha

Then onto An Post to get my Rent Allowance. While waiting there was a kid with his mother and brother or whatever. And the kid told the clerk that he’d wish to put €10 into the account. So adorable to look.

Then onto my Medical Cert to be put into Store St., Then onto my infamous Specsavers debacle. As reported on Sat, Maudy was making a racket. So I brought in the glasses for to drop them in for repair. I rang Maureen to find out what exactly did she tell the Supervisor. Cause I did get it for €33.50 which my aunt had said. She told me that she had said to them I’m a good Customer. Says I to her for a person whom the MOTHER pays??? how am I a good customer? She then answered it was in relation to that I give them custom ie walking in etc., etc.,

Then onto Easons for to get +Inflatables Stanescu R2D2. However I was distraught to learn they ain’t selling anymore. None in the warehouse etc.,e tc.,So then I asked if my Easons Voucher is working anymore she put likely no. As there is no balance. I in the meantime purchased a 1916 Magazine. While the salesperson was doing up my purchase a noise or something was heard. Says I to her perhaps a “Ghost”, haahaha.

So then just passing a Garda Stop van, I decided to try my luck and see if he could fill out my NDLS form, he said he’s no stamp, which is required.

So I continued onto Pennys to get the stuff I failed to have enough for the last day. Then Mom rings me, while on the way to H&M, she brought up my Mom, my birth Mom. She was saying there’s nothing can be done, until I brought up Andrea. I started to get teary. So I said to Mom am here in the City, so with that she changed the subject.

So then I headed to Tescos on the way to sis to get a few goodies. Then I headed onto my sis, of which I brought my sleeves – awwwww. Then while I was on the way up to my sis, I described this to my sis. I had two Neck Scarfies on the middle of the handlebars. While gaining momentum or speed, the scarfies were “flying” and eventually flipped over. I thought this was so adorable. Says I to me sis that If I had my GoPro, I would have recorded this and shown it to her. hehehe. She then noticed my Sleeve agitation, hahaah. Reason being its all non-too familiar. aka Social Welfare and an odd time my Mom but defo SociaL WElafre. As reported, I will be faced with a €400 bill of owing them back money they overpaid me in the coming weeks. My sis and I did a few calculations. So following are the calculations:

IB 84.50

SWA 101

RA 77

So the above I normally get would be 265 approx.

So with the deductions. The highest I can afford to payback would be €50 a week to SW. Which would last two months. So following is what would be the week WITH deductions

IB 84.50

SWA 51

RA 77

So that brings it to 191. That’s just bare minimum for Bills. So I would be having for myself about €10 a week, I would double it when I want to see a film in iMAX ie for the iMAX Fee AND the food of course. When I go to iMAX I LOVE food in their ghahaha. It adds to the movie. or as they say “Be a part of the movie”.
