I have a patient. My husband. He is home recuperating from a hernia operation.
Had the operation at 3.30pm and was discharged and home by 6.45pm
I rang the doctors today (Tuesday) to get the wound checked on Friday (note I rang – my husband doesn’t do phone calls unless they are about sport) and he can’t even get to see a doctor it will be the practice nurse…..
I know techniques have moved on and let’s face it it’s probably safer for him to be at home but really it seems to be almost do it yourself these days.
If Harry has an accident or needs medical attention I ring and he gets seen the same day. Not only do we see a vet of our choice but never feel rushed or feel like we are wasting their time.I often think that that Harry gets better medical care than we do.
Yesterday I had a lovely man come and see my poorly sewing machine.
Although he fixed the problem it was decided to put it out to pasture and just like that I now have procession of a brand new baby.
I am still in shock really.
Talking to someone that really knew the technical implications of different machines was like a breath of fresh air as although I have been trying to research what make and model I would like hearing first hand what makes are prone to breakdown made me realize how nigh on impossible it is to make a sound decision.
I shall introduce you another day as she’s rather shy.
I might even open up suggestions for a name….as long as they aren’t silly
I leave you with some photos of pumpkins - it's that time a year after all.
I believe the 'Pumpkin House' at Slindon is going to featured on Gardener's World soon....
Apparently another bad year for pumpkins.
This year's theme was The Loch Ness Monster.
