I cycled on to the train station to get a bus. I had a bit of a drippy nose, but thought this might be an allergy, rather than a cold, so I decided it was OK to donate.
I donated 3 units of platelets in 67 minutes. I didn't feel that brilliant during the donation, and the staff asked me if I was well enough to donate. However, I do get a runny nose fairly often, and have done since childhood.
Bus back, came home, flopped, and went for a lie down.
However, I needed to collect the unsold pears from Scoop, and then there was a seminar on sustainable development, organised by the University International Development Society. The speaker was Professor Piran White, Deputy Head at the Environment Department. It was a good overview about what sustainable development entailed.
Later, I wrote to the Press about the Council's bonfire, and copied in Andy D'Agorne, who'd been party to the discussion earlier this year.
