Older people can remain active and thoughtful and have the potential to grow. There are many role models. Mistakes happen, often hilarious. Join me on an ageing trip to places and moments.

Pilates - Me and Gillian kiss and make up. The NHS makes a cock-up

My grumpiness got the better of me, but Gillian forgave me following a gift of a duck biscuit
 




Gillian and Carol (not present) played a practical joke on me during pilates at the Civic Hall. I gave them one of my withering looks which I immediately regretted because I'd given up grumpiness for Lent. It's not yet Good Friday so what's going to happen goodness knows. In the short term Gilian enjoyed the duck biscuit from the baker's and we are now on speaking terms at least.

Peter recently enjoyed NHS hospitality for 6 hours waiting for a 5 minute drainage procedure

Peter has had knee replacements which may need to be replaced. As a precaution the medics said let's check there is no infection before going any further. 
Loads of pre-op advice in a brochure including general anaesthetic and epidural. He thought his procedure was similar to an injection so this advice was a little worrying.
11.15am start from Honley - HRI for midday.
He's not sure where he went but presumably a day case area.
A bloke came to see him, "I'm your anaesthetist". "Oh are you?" It dawned on both of them pretty quickly that a general anaesthetic for knee drainage was a tad OTT.
Pete hasn't said what time his next visitor arrived, but somewhere between midday and 5 o'clock a nice lady said "It's the left ear isn't it?" The reply is unpublishable.
Started to get ready from 5 o'clock onward, in for 5.54, out by 6. Some bloke showed him a 10 ml sample in a bottle, "That's from your knee". Looked okay to Pete.
Home for 7pm.
