James - thinky thoughts

Friday Again

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!
