Day 48/365: Lessons Learned

I gave blood yesterday afternoon, and then in the evening we went out to celebrate the bloke's birthday with a nice meal. We had booked a babysitter and we optimistically told her we would be home around 11:30.

We were home at 10:15 pm.

It turns out that those leaflets at the blood donation centre aren't kidding when they tell you you should not drink alcohol for 24 hours after donating. I had never gone againt the advice before and I never will again.

Likewise, the bloke was determined to enjoy the night out despite severe jet lag. His resolve was dampened at the first pub we went to after the meal, where he struggled to keep his eyes open.

At least the food was good!
