A bit late this month. That’s because the LSO had an angiogram on Friday. He already has six stents (sort of scaffolding holding open his arteries). Now he needs two more as another artery is blocked. It may mean a bypass but we’re hoping not. So what is there to laugh about? Well, he was told to rest for 48 hours so I’ve been on his case, giving him orders about what he can and cannot do. This morning I told him off for doing something – I can’t remember what – and his reply was, ‘I don’t mind doing what I’m told as long as you remember what you told me to do.’We’ll be getting through this tough time with a lot of giggles and great friendships.
Over to Sue Blackburn -My mum had a great sense of humour and could always laugh at herself. We were discussing perfumes one day.
“Oh,” she said, tutting away, “I much prefer talc. Those perfume smells get right up my nose.”
Cue hysterics from both of us when she realised what she’d said.
