Hey, You, Get Out Of My Face!

Posted 10-01-2009 at 21:21 by West Ender

It happens in car parks, doesn't it? I mean, you park on an empty row with and you can bet the next car to arrive will park right next to you.

It happened to me the other day. I'd had another slight chest infection (wasn't ill, just coughing like half the local population but, with my condition, I have to have an antibiotic if I get an infection) and saw one of the new, young, dishy doctors who have replaced David, my newly retired GP. Being young and keen the new chap thought I should have a chest X-ray so I duly appointed myself for Thursday afternoon at 1.30.

I arrived at X-ray reception and booked in 10 minutes early. There are about 30 seats in the reception area and there were 5 people already waiting....

Laura got all indignant tonight. I called Nik to look on the computer at a rude joke someone had emailed me. Laura knew she wasn't invited to look and she complained to Nik.

"It's not fair", she said. "You know, mum, I'm not a baby and there are people in my class who know the B word". She almost did the Les Dawson nod-head-with-arms-folded look.
"Well you know the B word", said Nik. "It's 'bloody'."
"Oh, is it?" Laura said. "Well, anyway, some people know the F word", she said, conspiratorily.
"I don't want to hear you say that - ever", said Nik. "It's a very unpleasant word and nobody who's nice ever says it".
"Oh...

It's The Little Things

Posted 05-01-2009 at 20:40 by West Ender

It was just Laura and me today. She doesn't go back to school until tomorrow (inset day today) and her mum was at work so we had each other for company.

I got up slowly, as I often do these days, and came downstairs at 9 to find Laura curled up on a sofa in front of the fire, snuggled in her fleecy dressing gown and watching Spongebob on the telly. I had my orange juice then went to make my breakfast porridge. I asked Laura if she'd had her brekky earlier, with her mum. She said no, she hadn't, but she didn't fancy porridge and she'd make herself some toast with chocolate spread. In the interests of an un-chocolate-smeared kitchen worktop I made it for her - very carefully - the bread hasn't to go brown, it must become hot and...

Tinky Winky

Posted 02-01-2009 at 22:15 by West Ender

Our next-door neighbours have got a new cat. They've had him about a month and he's 4 months old, just being allowed out for the first time over Christmas. He's a tabby with white feet and he's going to be very handsome when he's fully grown. At the moment he's like a gangly teenager, all legs and big ears.

Jeanette was scared to let him out because he hasn't been neutered yet (he's in for that treat in February). She's never had a tom before but I assured her he's too young to spray his territory or to have lascivious thoughts about queens - or, if he has them, to do anything about them - I've had many tom-cats so I know what's what in that department. She also worries because they had 2 lovely little queens, Fluffy and Smokey,...

Christmas Fit And Well

Posted 30-12-2008 at 21:47 by West Ender

It's all over, bar the shouting, and I'm still fairly fit and reasonably well. I can't tell you what a relief that is.

I've never been a hypochondriac, in fact I've been too much the other way for my own good. Until my blood pressure started to shoot through the roof I doubt if I saw my GP more than once every 5 years. I've always been the sort to shrug things off and tell myself it's nothing. It used to work, too. Now, of course, I've had to come to terms with the fact that I have a health problem but, being stubborn as I am, I'm damned if it's going to rule my life completely. I was scared about Christmas though, having been ill for the last 2.

Anyway, I was up at 8 on Christmas morning opening presents with Nik...
