Reasons to be Cheerful


Recommended Posts

My granny had her hip replaced. When at rehab hospital decided she wanted a cigarette. Couldn't be arsed waiting for nurse so went to go herself.

Fell

Broke other hip!

And that's a reason to be cheerful?

My mother's just had a hip replacement. Amazed at how straightforward these surgeries are now. It's been less than two weeks and she's taking a trip on the bus today. Your dad's situation is probably more complicated, but you might need to do some nagging about physiotherapy, as my mum's heard hee-haw from them, despite plenty of promises   :angry:

 

Anyway, enjoy your temporary freedom   :P

 

He's 94 so I doubt his recovery will be that quick. After hospital he'll be in recovery near our house, but still with 24 hour professional care which I have to say has been outstanding. I think Raigmore in Inverness specialises in this stuff, especially with the elderly. Looking like 6 weeks minimum. At which point he'll probably break his other hip (Rowan*) to keep being spoilt by the nurses.

Go to the Floridita and let me know what its like it night!!!

I was there during the day, and it had a feel about it, that it would absolutely rocking at night time. Was only there for a day trip though.

Also, The Nacional Hotel bar does the best mojitos iv ever had by a fucking mile

 

My apartment is just down the road from the Nacional hotel and I love a good mojito so cheers! Is the Floridita the one that Hemingway drank himself to death in?

94, fucking hell...fair play to him, I doubt many of us will see that. Sounds like you've got some good genes* to fall back on, WB.

Aspirin! I take it the proper anticoagulants are being rationed in the Highlands   :lol:

 

Oh, and, err...is your granny OK, Rowan?   :unsure:

No it's not airside, so yes smoking is an option. Not that I'm a filthy cretin who would partake in such vile activities though.

 

Hope you get shipped off straight to work then. Is there still a horrible glass cubicle airside for smokers?

Beer Festival today, three Euro 2016 games tomorrow AND three on Sunday.

 

Looking forward to trying several new beers and regularly relating the pleasure of so doing to one mate who isn't allowed to go.  :lol:
