Tender

...and I'm not talking about tender as in tender chicken, but tender as in tender arm!! ow.

No, I've not had an accident or anything, in fact, I've inflicted this on myself! You see, I work in a hospital and every year the Occupational Health nurse comes around looking for victims to practise her injection skills on.

Well, actually that's not strictly true. It's merely that time of year when we can get a 'flu jab. Although I know that the vaccine cannot possibly protect against every kind of 'flu as it is a particular virus that can and does mutate, but if I am given the opportunity then I thought that I would take advantage of it.

Only now I have a sore arm and thank goodness I sleep on my tummy as otherwise I think that I'd be wincing everytime I moved if I slept on my side. I just hope that it was worth doing, but who knows! (of course, it doesn't help when I grab the iron in the wrong way too, so now I have a nice little burn on my hand! D'oh!)

Everyone I know had a reaction to the flu jab this year.. except me. LOL. I don't know how I managed it. :)

Ooooo... that doesn't sound too good. I hope that tender feeling will disappear soon.
