I did something amazing ...

... according to Sean Bean. Nah, it wasn't finding another reason to shop at Morrison's. I managed to give blood. The last two times I've tried, I was unable due to medical reasons. But this time, I aced it. It looks like getting through the health questionnaire is always going to be a pain due to the pulmonary embolism in 2002 - they have to check the guidelines, and will do so each time, in case policy changes. But I got through that this time. Then the iron blood test, with the sample sinking just before the bell (phew). And then the actual donation. At one donation a while back, my blood didn't flow out quick enough, but this time it was fine. My A+ is out there for someone else to use. I did it, hurrah :-)

Well done ! I used to be a donor but am too old now... my elder daughter faints at the sight of a needle.. but the younger one has just started giving blood and said she finds it fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable. I think that is going a little far.
