Well it was a nice and positive day, for once in me miserable life. hahaha. It all started when I got up for Social Welfare. Of course it started off with my Mom ringing my bell, to get me up outta bed. hahah. That said, I continued onto Social Welfare to go to Supplemental Welfare Office to hand in my form.
So I waited around as needed. Then my number was called. I then handed in my form. The Officer then proceeded to tell me that as I was NOT in a job, that I wouldn’t not be entitled to it. However he quickly changed his tune when he inputted my PPS number into the Pulse system. He told me that I required specific documentation. He said that my Landlord has to fill out a form AND the Doctor aswell. So I rang the relevant parties ie Doctor Kelly for an appointment AND my landlord. My landlord said he’ll ring me before the Weekend to come out to fill out the form.
I then headed onto first pay Franky for BOTH rents, weeks ie €260. So I did my business. Then as htere was too long a line, well more so there was a couple, who had little to know English, AND there was an elderly man at both machines. There was one staff member helping both of them. So I jstu stayed until my cell allowed me to transfer funds. As it did, I didn’t bother waiting around. So when I went to transfer, the AIB site asked me to input a message to the Recipient of the Funds aka my Landlord, I simply put “Apolgiesi for the delay, blame the social welfare”.
I then headed onto collecting my glasses. I was delighted with em. However the minute I put em on, I immediately got ditzy ie dizzy. heheheh. Even as I write this I get oncurring headaches.
I then headed with delight but still being cautious. I then headed on off to my next test. As I said to my sis, I’ll go to Drumcondra An Post just to piss them off. Seeing as they’s piss me off. Why not. Well as it happens, there was a different guy altogether albeit, I know him, alrite, but still. So I just went about my business. Well LOW and behold my cash was there, the €155 that am owed for TWO weeks. I was so happy. So I got stamps, cards AND my most important TV License stamps.
So then I headed to my sis, as she wanted me to collect a package for her. I then headed off to her place collected a slip of paper, I had parked my bike at Charlemont Rd., so that I could just simply head off quickly instead of the usual place of whereby I park it at the gate. However when I came out I got the land of my life when I thoguht my bike was stolen. Well the laugh I got outta of it. hahaha.
So then off to Lomond Office to the sorting office. The guy was most rude. He went as far as to say is she my shagging friend. Something like that. I told him its none of his business. I told him, she’s my sister. But he didn’t believe it, so I just headed on off.
I then headed on up to my folks. To mainly to hand the bag back to em AND to see my new glasses. I had a nice meal. When I arrived, Dad was in Pauline’s doing business. So we looked at the news then of which both were sleeping or dozing. It was a bit abnormal that Dad closed his eyes. heheeh.
Then I headed on home in torrential downpour of wind & rain. I was soaked to the skin. So I showered to avoid getting a cold.
Well what a day today turned out to be. hahahaah.
It all started off with when Mom banged and rang the doorbell around 10ish to ensure I get up. I ignored of course. I wasn’t gonna be bothered with Social Welfare. I had enough of a headache with em. Then I got up around eventually at 1ish instead of 12ish due to leg trouble. So while showering and getting rid of the beard, My doorbell rang yet again. Again it was Mom. I told her not to be bothered with it. I’ll go in MY time, and get in touch with her.
I then got ready, headed to An Post, I was distraught to learn that there were no funds for me. I got so teary, that I didn’t know what to do. So I rang Mom, let her know of the update, then afterwards,
I headed to Dr., to get my certificate. While there, I peeved off with the ticketing system. The ticket machine was at 36 when I got in, and the Gadget where you collect the ticket was at 34. So it didn’t make it sense when my number was NOT called. So I went up and a woman and here kid came in from the cold outside, yet HER number was called, like what gives!!!!!. So I jst queued up behjind her, to ensure I GET called. So I asked for my certificate.
I then headed onto Social Welfare in Kings Inn St., I went to Desk 29 and ask for Member of A Team. I waited for a few minutes. I submitted my certificate and he looked at it. He asked if I had sent in my Bank Details. I had hoped to continue collecting the payments in the Post Office. However it wasn’t to be. He mentioned this delayed the payment in question. So he then asked that I send my certificate from now on to Social Welfare in Store St., A member of staff asked how my back was considering the complaint, I kinda know him alrite. I told him he hasn’t been the best lately. We then joked about him making out that he’s 25. hahaah. Whether the was taking the mikky I ain’t sure. When I went to sign the signature, firstly it brought up my NAME issue YET again!!! hence why I went back to my Romanian name ie Georgian Stanescu and secondly the guy commented how fancy the pen is. I told him its Nico’s 60th Anniversary Takeaway in Ireland or whatever in Irl. He told me he knew Nico Boroso or whatever. hahaah. What a small world. So he reassured me that all should be well now. I asked if I were to get my Rent Allowance. He explained when you change over to a new Benefit, that ALL payments are stopped and suspended. Then you will be reinstated, something like that.
I then headed onto Store St., Social Welfare. While I was not impressed with the people that were there, I handed my envelope to a guy, I ensured that he put it somewhere.
So I then headed up to my folks. ehehheh mainly to go and see how Dad is after his flu/cold. Had a nice meal with em,
I then headed back to my sis in my place. Where we had a meal etc., well my sis’ takeaway at least, We had many a laughs. ahahaha. Here’s one for ya. hahahah. Her face expression was priceless. hahaha. She was atop a table, I asked her to hold Champy +Inflatables Stanescu and she replys “Ok”, as much to say she’ wasn’t unsure. I then pulled it with her falling in tow. It was priceless. hahaha. The laugh I got. ahahah. Her expression was that she thought she was falling on concrete or carpet in my case which could be dangerous. However she was falling on inflatables, cause that’s who takes up my floor space. Awwwwwwww. Then we headed to her place stopping by Tescos to get Butter. Then moving onto hers. Again we had many a laugh there too. hahaaha. Now it was with great regret to inform yee all thou, that there was a scene at the begging of a movie K9-11 whereby a character reminded me of a vicious dream i had relating to ISIS in recently, that shook me completely. It was completely unexpected. So it was a good thing I had my Sleeves and rags etc.,with me. heehhe. So I had a good meal at em. Or as the saying “let em rip”, or “let em at it”. So then it was also with great sadness that my sis had a hip displacement, something like that. She’s getting there. God speed, sis, God Speed sis. You’re a fighter. I stayed with her longer to ensure her safety and taht she was able to get around. I told my sis during the night, that I’m PURPOSELY gonna get “fat”, not obese or anything but to go in January when I go after Christmas to work my calories off etc., in Westwood. aahah.
REmembering a night my sis and I and also my Aunt(MAudy) who was llookign after us while our folks were out. I remember that we were both looking at Causlty or as used to say “Casuty”. We were looking at a partiducalr episode. Where a character died or something. I inisntalnyl fell in love with him, ie GAY. hehehehe. Then also playoing a game called Duke Nukem BUT more so DOOM, and then ALSO playing a CD Music disc called Robson & JErome’s Unchained Melody etc., etc.,.
Trhought out the night, as I said abotuve when I saw a particualr scene I reacted qutie badly, I told her of my quitting COffee cold turkey FORCEFULLY(As I had none left), she put it down to withdrawels and teh ISIS in the dream, being playng negativilty.
Well today was quite an unusual day. By that the weather played its part. Then the fact that I did banking on a Sunday, which I don’t normally. However it had to be done. hahahah. By that I mean that as I need the cash BEFORE Westwood comes in on Tuesday, I wouldn’t be able to pay Franky. So I moved swiftly. Initially I was gonna leave it til next Tuesday, however my cash wouldn’t allow it ie DOUBLE payment for him. So I said I’d go and do it.
So my day started off with me getting up around Midday, and then heading off after a few tv shows. So then I headed on off to AIB Bank, however I needed change from Kennedy’s. Brian asked me if all I was doing was getting change everyday. I then said to him NO, that that’s not true. hahaha. to go and get a definition. ahahah. Brian although loved my beard. haahahah. The other Brian(Paula’s dad – whom Paula herself was an employee) likes it but sarcastically ie he says when you start growing it, I said the beginning of the month, and he says you mean in the 4years, hahaaha. So then I moved onto the last minute decision, to the Sunday Market in SmallChanges building. heeheh. I found a few gift ideas. heheeheh. When I came out of the Sunday Market, it poured out of the heavens via Winds. oh boiiiii.
Then my sis came to my place for the downloading. We were chatting, and supporting each other. heehheh. Then we went for a bit of shopping. In the meantime, I had gotten a takeout too. I headed to her place then for the night. We had great laughs too.
Not bad a day, hahaha.
I was awoken by my sis, which was a good thing, as had she not. I would have NOT been on time for the dole. So I quickly set about getting ready.
I got the dole, then handed over to AIB to do my business there. hahah. I then headed to SMall Changes to get my weekly supply of Vegan food. Today I didn’t buy too much, as I didn’t have enough for the week. As I intend going to a meetup tomorrow night, then to Sweatbox event on Friday Night. Haircut on Thurs and then Cineworld to see a film with the Cineworld Craicheads. While at SmallChanges, I was about to buy a Vegetarian popcorn, which I was surprised, but Peadar stop me in my tracks and I replaced. heeheheh
So with this in mind, I headed on back and my sis and I were looking at tv while she was downloading. Mom dropped down food to us. Twas pleasant. heheeh. I then dropped my sis back to her place. Further chats were had. I was chatting with her relating to Sky Broadband and comparing prices.
