Oh yes I had to have my brew yesterday in Derby Royal's Accident and Emergency Department yesterday and a fine brew it was, just what the patient needed. I'm a bit surprised that I only had the one but I was so conscious of drinking lots of brews, needing the toilet and then missing my name being called out.
I was trying to be so well organised yesterday and planned to drop all my flowery stock off early at the shop. This went so well until I had a bit of a fight with a big gate and the gate seemed to want to cuddle my little finger. A bit squashed and cuddled far too much it was so I decided to take myself down to A&E to have it checked.
I was so glad of a nice brew and bless the ladies at the League of Friends Tea Bar for being there with a friendly face and lovely service. It beats a boring old vending machine, those big metal things won't smile and say 'is that too strong for you?' No it wasn't too strong it was a perfect brew and the best thing I had seen in the last three hours of waiting.
You get so used to faces and people popping in and out while waiting around. it's not something I do that often, in fact I think it was the first time I have ever walked in to A&E. I probably waited a little longer than I should as I didn't get booked in properly but hey when I did I received tip top treatment, bless our NHS and everyone who works there.
I came away with just a slight tiny fracture and a bit of swelling but it will be all back to normal in a couple of weeks. What a day though and so different to the one I had planned, in fact it was my one day off. Just goes to show you never know where you're next brew is coming from or where you will be drinking it.
Take care everyone and I will be back tomorrow for What to Buy Wednesday.....join me then.
