On it's way from the North Sea!
We are situated on the North East Coastline, indeed we can see the Sea from our house. On Wednesday as we were driving we could see the terrible weather coming in from the North Sea. last night we had the coldest night so far and the dreadful weather is set in for another week.
I have not been out of the house for a few days now, making do with a visit to the shop in the 4x4 (Jon driving) for day to day stuff!
We had to make a journey to the local A&E department on Wednesday as Jon has a problem with his hand. During the Christmas break he was working on the work's van when there was an incident with a spanner which he managed to bash his hand with. Initially this just seemed to be superficial, but as the days went on a swelling started to develop which was causing him pain and discomfort. A routine visit to the surgery on Wednesday found us on our way to the hospital. Jon was seen quite quickly and whilst I waited in the waiting room he was whisked off for treatment.........all of nearly 3 hours!
Imagine my surprise and horror when Jon emerged with a plaster cast on his arm, supported in a sling!
It would seem a metal turning has been trapped near to his wrist and although not threatening initially, when Jon bashed his hand the turning was pushed near to the joint, hence the pain! As I write this, Jon is back at the hospital having it dealt with. Our neighbour John, kindly took him in his landrover!
I must say the time I spent in the waiting room was interesting to say the least!
I'll keep you posted re Jon's progress and rmind me to tell you about the lady who came in with a flapjack injury!
I tell you, you certainly hear it all in A&E!
