On news...

Ok, so update time... MILTB is doing a lot better. The hospital is operated by hopeless nurses, who don't know what's wrong with their patients (one nurse told us last week that MILTB hadn't had an MRI scan, then she had when we corrected her). Meanwhile, MILTB is able to talk a lot more, and a lot more correctly. I took down my portable DVD player for her, and the difference in her speech (presumably because she is hearing conversation again. No nurses would sit and talk to her) is amazing. She's been causing fights with night porters and tea ladies, so we know she's feeling a lot better.
Meanwhile, elsewhere, TDT's work has made an announcement. They're closing the Irish office down over the next two years, and yes, that means just about everyone's out of a job, including TDT. She's the union rep, so she's got her work cut out to say the least. As you can imagine, poor TDT is feeling a little low at the moment. We spent Sunday evening with her colleague Mary and hubby Des, and a truly wonderful evening unfolded without the aid of *much* alcohol.

So, apologies for lack of postage. But, in the meantime, here's 3 stories for you to choose from for Thursday's post.
  • Media whore.
  • Charity begins at home.
  • Unusual tastes.
