In York. With friends. All needing the loo before setting off for home.

B went into the gents with the muffled, agonised cry of “40p??!!”. T went into the ladies. Mr SW failed to open the disabled one with my RADAR key. So did the male attendant. The female attendant arrived, said a few people had had problems and, at the 3rd attempt, succeeded in opening it. And ushered us both in :o

We looked at each other. This wasn't quite what we'd intended but I think those dreaded words “40p” were echoing in Mr SW's head. So I turned my back and then he turned his.

I explained to him that the doctor's couch was probably for baby-changing purposes but even I was stumped by the armchair.

Still, he saved 40p :lol:

    I'm good Starburst, thank you for asking Starburst :D Especially as we're expecting twin grandchildren just after Christmas a080.gif

    I'm going into hospital on Monday for a thumb fusion but I'll start a thread about that when I've been done to help others who might have to have the same procedure. (Sorry for the thread hijack SW :oops: )

    Are you well?

    Love,

    Well it's obvious that after all the difficulties inherent in things lavatorial (wardrobe malfunctions, hovering etc) you will be in need of a 'wee' rest, so how thoughtful to provide couch and armchair...

    Made me laugh Sticky and rang a few bells too :lol:

    At a recent pre-op assessment I was asked to provide the usual MSU. Complicated jug, wipes, container procedure, all completely heat-sealed wrapped and me going for op on useless hands so in we both wheeled into disabled loo.

    Before exiting hubby says well it was a long journey, might as well...
    Nurse may have wondered what was so funny about a pre-op assessment, specially for a seasoned couple married for 46 years. Sense of humour keeps us sane :roll:

    Have fun xxx

    This thread has resurrected the lavatorial memories of my double carpal tunnel operation . . . . at least he wasn't in there with me whilst I performed but he had to 'mop up' so to speak . . . . happy days! :lol: DD
