Well, not totally.

I’m recovering after an operation on my back, which means that I’m lounging about while my better half tidies and generally looks after me for a short while, and then I will have several weeks of sitting around the house watching daytime TV, which is almost certainly less fun than the assorted wasters seem to find it. Daytime TV is, without a doubt, awful.

Hospital was ‘interesting’. the contrasts of people (from troubled, mentally ill types, to ungrateful obnoxious types, and all points in between)- and all having to be cared for by genuinely overworked staff. God bless the NHS: my care was excellent, but things were obviously stretched.

    You did well to come out without a few “extras” such as MRSA etc!

    I wonder how long it will be before we see a commentary on the merits of “Deal or No Deal” on this blog 🙂

    To be fair, they seem to take the MRSA thing seriously. I was swabbed at a pre-op check a week before, and when I went in, and the ward was clean.

    As far as Deal or No Deal goes, I can’t stand it. So far I’ve been watching repeats of Locks and Quays, Homes under the Hammer, and a whole load of other dross. I can see the Cartoon Network coming into play, and the Futurama DVDs.

    Don’t expect a daytime TV review- if it becomes that bad I’ll just go quiet!

    Good to see you are doing well. I’m sure certain parties within the family can now relax and stop FLAPPING.

    As far as MRSA is concerned, I just lost a good friend to it. After 4 months in hospital for other issues, he was transferred to another joint in Liverpool and contracted MRSA….on top of a minor heart attack and a serious stroke, the poor bastard died aged 41. Shame, he loved deal or no deal!

    Anyone I know?

    Regarding the flapping, there’s always things to flap about.
