Sorry I’m a bit late in blogging but I’ve had a few very busy days, my family have all been home to stay for a long weekend. We’ve all had a great time. The weather was lovely so we were able to be outside in the garden in the sunshine. Lots of cooking for me of course to feed all eight of us, but no clearing up. My family are all good at helping and they did. I have had great fun with my grandchildren playing in the garden, and all the grown ups love playing board games into the early hours ( and we did). So it's been a wonderfully fun weekend.
They have all gone now and the house is very quiet. (Lovely.)
Peace at last.
Now I can get back to writing my blog.
I don’t know if you ever have days when your mouth isn’t connected to your brain? (I often have them).
Well, I had one again the other day.
I had two patients booked in last week for their treatments. A mother and daughter. They are both lovely and I always look forward to seeing them.
When I opened the door to them the first thing I did as they came into my home was give each of them a hug and mum then said.
I’ll Just go to the loo before my treatment.
Now I was about to say to them both, but I turned to direct my words to the daughter ‘ You can go out into the garden and sit in sunshine (it was a beautiful day) or you can go into the conservatory. Or you can go into the lounge while I give mum her treatment.’
That’s what I wanted to say, that’s what I meant to say.
But that’s not what came out of my mouth.
I said with conviction, and I promise the whole sentence came out of my mouth without a glimmer of a smile. “You can go and sit on the toilet and wait while I give mum her treatment!”
And then my hand went straight to my mouth because I realised what I’d just said.
Daughter looked at me and said. “Have I really got to go and sit on the toilet for an hour?”
And that’s when all three of us burst into fits of uncontrollable giggles.
And we all needed the Loo.
Just another one of my Oops days.
