James - thinky thoughts
No photos today - I did walk to see a friend for coffee/tea and took the camera.  However I was late going as a phonecall delayed me.  I thought I could take a few photos on the way home ... only for it to have been raining!

The call that delayed me was a hospital where they contacted me to say that my Aunt was being discharged .... brilliant, considering I didn't know she had been admitted!  Apparently even though I was listed as next-of-kin (thus they called me), they didn't let me know she had been there for 2 - 3 days.  She had fallen at home, but was basically OK, so that's the main thing.  Auntie Joyce is being "herself" apparently ... and I said I would phone her at home tomorrow.  The staff did have most of the details, so obviously she is still mantally OK (well as mentally OK as she has ever been 🤣 )  So that delayed me ... but at least she seems OK, so I don't have to do the round trip, but did say that if for any reason she was kept in could they let me know and I would re-think the 545 mile long return journey

However it was  good to catch up with the friend (from Church).  So the rest of the morning went well!

But now I have housework to do (I didn't get as much done as I had aimed to yesterday) ... so .... (as ever - )

6. What is the dumbest way you’ve injured yourself?

With a name like Debris, there are plenty to choose!

However reading someone else's comment reminded me of one of the oddest.  Back in 2008 I was in London to go to a James gig, and staying at a hostel (as I always do in London), and the morning of the gig I managed to fall out of the shower, skidded, stubbed my toes ... and broke 3 of them!   So by the evening my foot was half black & blue. 

But, overall I could probably list a few more - like falling off a chair and chipping a chunk out of my elbow!

It must have been jarring to find out your aunt had been in the hospital but it's good she's okay.

Sorry for the delay in answering

I think the hospital would have been glad to discharge her as she would have done nothing but moan while she was there!!!

Ooh - not the best of communication there... I'm guessing the ward thought A&E had 'informed next of kin', but it does remind us why getting the paperwork right, and checking it to be sure something has been done, is actually important!

I'm also very pleased for you that she seems to be her usual self and you needn't worry about visiting :)

Yes, I would imagine that was all it was. If a bed had become available quicker than expected then they move beds out of ED to save the fines.

Yes, Auntie Joyce was Auntie Joyce ... so that was a positive note, at least
