Hospitals

My Gran’s been taken into hospital: we could’ve seen that coming when we visited while up that end of the country for my cousin’s wedding. She’d protested about the possibility of being admitted then, stating that “she’d been in hospital three times before and they hadn’t managed to kill her yet,” which is an interesting attitude to take. Nonetheless, she’s not in a particularly good state. We shall have to see.

And… my co-worker, Alex, didn’t come in to work today. He’s instead gone to the hospital to have his hand looked at, which he apparently injured last night. We know that he was at the pub until late and that somebody stole his car keys and he needed to examine the landlord’s CCTV footage to determine where they’d been hidden, but apart from that, we know nothing: he carefully avoided saying how he’d managed to hurt himself, which implies that it’s something particularly stupid or embarrassing. Let the speculation begin!

Coming To Brum?

Those of you coming to Birmingham, be aware! After much debating on Paul’s blog, it’s been kinda-somewhat agreed that we will gather at The Cottage at 9:20am. We’re currently looking at me, Paul, Claire, Rory and probably Suz. Bryn and Heather have also expressed an interest in coming, which’d be great not only because they’re fabulous and we like spending time with them but because they’d bring an extra car, too.
