SUNDAY ?   only went into the village to get a Sunday paper, next thing i know , i was having words with a pavememnt slab. Very nice lady ask if she could help me up, Ben (did not know him from Adam) ask if I could follow his finger. Lady had phoned master to bring car down to take me up home. Next door neighbour Doc Val? came round insisting that we phone blues and twos, *(999)  so after broken glasses, spending all Sunday at Kings Mill (could nor praise ambulance nurse's Doctors and porters any more as they were excellent)  I am now at home recovering, back for checkup on my eyes at 2-30am ohh!! sorry pm.  All though no one offerd me a cup of tea. Thats the way to diet Go out for a paper don't have breakfast/dinner or tea.

Being the newbie I am to N.S. I couldn't work out how to reach out to Physical Perfection to tell him to get on with life as you never know what tomorrow will bring. Obviously at the moment time

I'm a happy Bunny tonight Went for my oncology visit after I had the P.E.T. scan and T.A.C. a couple of weeks ago and all is clear after the scare I had. The next process is due in 6 months after I ha

Well I hadn't intended contributing to this thread but do you want to know how many staples I've got in my tummy?!!  Actually I'll spare you the details but I want to put on record that my experience

Oh dear Mary - what a day you had!  I’m pleased they’ve allowed you to go home from hospital  and that you seem OK now.  Is the eye appointment related to your fall?

Because your glasses were broken I suppose you didn’t even get to read a Sunday paper while you were in hospital!

I hope ‘master’ has been looking after you well…

I'm reminded of a curmudgeonly, skinflint of a chap who used to keep a village shop not far away from me. An elderly native of the village went, religiously, every morning to buy his paper from the shop and, one morning, unfortunately suffered a coronary on the steps as he was approaching the shop doorway and dropped dead.

 

Curmudgeonly skinflint's comment? "He might have bought his paper first!"

 

They're all heart in Derbyshire!

This is not a complaint.. just an observation.  My Flu Jab appointment on 23rd Sep, was cancelled by Text this morning.  It seems the jabs have been delayed.

It seems it's due to lack of HGV drivers... I'm tempted to renew mine especially now they're making £50k plus OT

Indeed.. another triumph for the wonderful concept and thorough implementation of Brexit.

Everything we said is coming true.

Their salaries have clearly gone up, though I suspect £50 k may be top end.

 

Whatever happened to 'pricing yourself out of a job'?

I don't know any on that sort of money I was quoting from an article on the beeb that related how a driver had a £7 an hour  rise taking him to around £50k

The REED agency is advertising £55k in some areas at the moment.

Pricing? we live in a nice cosy capitalist society so supply and demand rulez!   ;)

Well yes.. sort of.. and I just knew that was coming back at me. ;)

 

Yet oddly.. the Rees-Moggs and their ilk, of this World, who pay no taxes and contribute nothing but misery, as they cheerfully manipulate money and in consequence, other people's lives.. always seem to have a place..

I'd be interested to see what 'demand', exists for such oxygen thieves.

P.S. £50k is a pretty conservative income these days.  It will be commonplace in Construction trades for eg., where £200 per day is an absolute minimum charge for Plumbers, Heating 'Engineers' et.al.

In other professions, such as Law, Medicine etc..etc.. it is low.

 

But it is ingrained in the National psyche, that 'ordinary working class people'.. are just not 'supposed' to earn a decent wage... even if demand outstrips supply.

And quite right ... give the buggers more money and next thing you know they'll be wanting to vote and denying they are working class...then where will be?

Fair point....

Which reminds me... I need to get a new cap.  The one I have isn't fit for Doffing to my betters..

You're blessed with more patience than I, Mary!  That's disgusting.

Well Jill just had to sit there and be quite, master had warned me to behave myself.

This is not the end of my story, 

After playing smashed faces with concret slab, A/E doc said that i would have to see the optometry doc and maxilla doc. 2 phone calls half hour apart, 1st app made Thur 2 30 /2nd phone call app made 2 30 ask is app for face and eyes? yes said man its on the same floor. When i arrived and left all they had done was my eyes. Saturday letter arrived "YOU HAVE MISSED YOUR APP" ??? what !!! appointment ?  Finally worked it out eyes Kings Mill 2 30 Thursday Face QMC 2 30 Thursday both same day    "Oh! what a tangled web we weve"?  Any way QMC have given me another app. and guess what I did not even have to ask.  Well it saves us mature people getting board.

I sympathise, Mary. I've played that game many times with the QMC in the days when my mum had appointments there with ophthalmologists. When we knew about them, that is!

 

We've sat for hours, watching the appointment time pass. When I started to become restive and indignant, she would remind me of the days when one just turned up at the old Eye Hospital on The Ropewalk and stood in a queue, waiting to be seen, often for hours. I recently found an old eye casualty card for Friday 24 June 1949, the day before her wedding, when she did just that!

 

For some years, she saw Mr Hamish Fraser privately but he was then too old to operate on her cataracts and they were dealt with by the excellent Mr Foss at QMC. I don't miss traipsing over there for follow up appointments.
