Dirty Gertie






There's been a bit of a palaver lately at Discombobulated Towers.  The other-half somehow managed to get properly ill.  We're talking both ends here, catch my drift.  Yeah, yeah poor old Nev blah blah blah, but what about my compromised immune system.  Panic stations ensued with Sisses no 1 and 2 riding to the rescue (luckily for No 3 she was out of the country - wise move).  So I was fed, watered and generally and looked after by non-lurgified people.

While I was flapping about the risk of catching the dreaded bug I took to smothering myself with hand gel that kills all known germs dead (or something like that).  Sticky times.  

After a couple of days I noticed thIat although I'd avoided the lurgy, strange brown marks were appearing all over my hands.  They even started joining up.  I googled it and it looked like a steroid side effect so I left a message for the lovely hospice nurse.  The following  morning I had a good scrub in the bath and all the marks came off. They were dirt.  Oh the shame.  To makes matters worse I had to phone the nurse back to confess.  I am a dirty Gertie.

Can I just deflect attention on to the other half for a moment?  He's just had his ancestry DNA thing done.  Turns out he's mostly from Belgium.  Sis No 3 said "hmm, beer, chocolate, cheese, sounds about right".  After Belgium his most likely home was France.  This has fed in to his delusions that he came over with William the Conqueror.  So now, as one of the oppressed Saxons, I call him Norman Pig Dog.  Feel free to join me.

    1. Nev now back in the land of the living. I think I scared him back into health by the amount of online shopping I was doing while he was bed bound. New sofa? Don't mind if I do.

      Have had good reply from SATH Chief Exec. Instigating formal enquiry into my complaint and anonymising my letter to form part of their how not to treat patients training. So far so good.

      Hope all well with you xx
