Four admissions,one death, a staff at full stretch and at one slightly surreal moment, a broken sink tap and an unexpected flood.
As always, the predominantly Filipino staff soldiered on with good humour but by 8.30am after 13 hours on my feet I was ready to kick the shit out of the noisy monitor system without any hint of unprofessional irony.
|George, being "quietly cheerful"|
I had a 90 minute sleep covered in dogs when I got home then went out for a walk up the Gop then around the village where I bumped into the ever cheerful Sandra, who was out on her allotment.
"do you want an extra hen?" she called out as I passed "she's a good layer!"
"what's wrong with her?" I called back and Sandra explained that she was a constant escapee from her allotment hen house and an avid eater of young plants from not only her veg patch but from the vegetable plots from all her neighbours allotments
"she's a slippery little sucker" she laughed!
and so, remembering the film where the heroine uses a version of that line ..a new Rhone Island Red who has a passion for escapology will be arriving today. Her name? Vivian Ward....of course!
Now name that film?
