Ole’s at the wheel

Today’s a big day.

My beloved Manchester United play Liverpool with a chance to go 6 points clear at the top of the league. “Ole’s at the wheel” is our new song in reference to the current manager. The thing is he just happens to be a bit of a dodgy driver sometimes so I’ll be watching from behind the sofa today. To be fair to Ole at least he’s got his licence though. I heard on the radio this week that someone had failed their theory test for the 157th time – Seriously, just get the bus!

It’s my birthday tomorrow too (I’ll be 33 – but between 30 and 40 they’re all the same anyway) so I’m praying for an early birthday present with a win for my team. I’ve already tucked into my cakes and afternoon tea from the staff at work, made by our nurse Gemma’s mum 😋

Had some help of-course – Impossible to hide “CAAAAKE” from these guys, they’ve got a 6th sense for it.

I also saw in the news this week that some poor fella only has 2 password guesses left to access his £180,000,000 worth of Bitcoin before he’s locked out of his account forever. I was telling this story to our nurse Danielle and she said “surely he can just ‘reset password’?” I don’t know much about bitcoin but I’m assuming it’s a bit more complicated than that 😂. How frustrating must that be though.

We have to change our work computer passwords every few months and that’s annoying enough thinking of a word that’s not allowed to be like your previous 3 passwords, must contain capitals, lower case, special symbols, numbers, can’t be too long or short and unfortunately cannot contain the word ‘password’. It’s easy to forget so I sympathise with Mr Bitcoin, although I do write mine down 🤷🏻‍♂️. Surely he’s got a £180,000,000 post it note lying around somewhere!

The theory test and bitcoin password we’re obviously lower down on the newsfeed from what’s going on in the USA this week. That was really sad to see, and I hope they all settle down! What a job my fellow Joe (Biden) has on his hands.

I’m glad I’m just a dentist and don’t have to make any of the tough decisions that the people in charge are having to make at the moment. It’s great to see the vaccine roll out gaining momentum now though, and it’s nice to see lots of our colleagues and our more elderly patients being invited to get it. Fingers crossed for some light at the end of the tunnel now!🤞🏼

Take care all and stay safe & well,
