Blood Donation (10th August 2011)

Got an 8:40am appointment at the West End Donor Centre. Strolled down to it, just a few minutes from this flat. The novelty of convenience such as that is still strong! All went very smoothly.

Was told to gently wriggle my fingers instead of clenching and unclenching my fist while donating. The process seems a bit different every time I go. Was still finished very quickly!

Enjoyed 3 cups of orange juice, a bag of crisps and a trio of ginger nut biscuits. All while watching some show about finding the rightful heirs to inheritances.
