Wednesday 9 June 2010: PLAYMOBILE?
I had an early morning appointment, today, at my local hospital's outpatients' clinic. The above shot is of the entrance to that facility and upon thinking about it (which I hadn't done prior to this morning) it reminded me of a facade that could be crafted out of a set of children's playmobile bricks.
I had taken my book with me plus a back-up in case I finished the last five chapters of my current read before I was called in for my appointment. It was a good job that I had as, when I booked in for my appointment, I was informed that the clinic was running late by forty five minutes (I wondered if the consultant was, as I spoke to the receptionist, driving around the hospital's paltry parking facilities in the hope of finding a spot. Sometimes I often wonder if it would be easier to drive to the nearest town - about five miles - park up and then catch a bus back to the hospital).
I was eventually seen thirty five minutes after my appointment time so I didn't feel too badly done to but by that time I had finished one book (and left it on a chair in the hope that someone else would enjoy it more than I had) and commenced the new one.
Not a bad morning really as I never mind spending time with my nose in a book when I could be working (even if it is a book that is not particularly inspiring) and all is progressing well on the health front but I have to keep taking the tablets!
