I was done!

We got to the hospital in plenty of time, so once we knew exactly where Hubby was going, I returned to the car via the cafe for a cup of coffee and a sweet treat.
I said I was taking it out rather than eating in (20% extra on cost then) and duly paid using my card to keep the little change I had in my purse for the car park.
As I ambled back to the car, I realised I’d been overcharged but it was too late now to argue so I let myself in, got comfy with the suduku book, put the mobile on the driving seat and looked forward to my coffee and treat. The coffee was flat, no froth, and if it was a latte, I’m a chinaman. I was not happy, and I didn’t enjoy it.

Hubby was done and dusted in less than an hour, and as they’d changed the formula, there was no problem with needing the loo in a hurry so we were able to go into the precinct for something to eat.
Oh yum.  Lunch out, but not a picnic in the car because there were plenty of benches on which to sit in the arcade and people watch.
Not very much of interest really apart from the same guy going by too many times to be coincidence who caught Hubby’s eye. He wasn’t the only one who’d noticed him.

I got Hubby a large cup of tea, sausage roll and a vanilla custard slice because he’d had no breakfast as he couldn’t eat anything 6 hours before the test and not allowed to drink anything 2 hours beforehand. I had a tuna crunch roll with salad and red onions, a proper latte coffee and a yum yum pastry. The diet had left the building and I was having a day off anyway.

As we were leaving, a lady came and sat on our bench and I honestly thought she was going to pass out. I asked her if she was OK as she was extremely breathless. She said she was just tired, so I offered to buy her a cup of tea. She declined but I asked again, and she still said no. Hubby said that if she didn’t feel well, there was a security guard on duty at the desk round the corner. Then another lady turned up and sat with her, so I think they were together.

The trip home was uneventful and we have had a quiet day. Hubby will see the consultant in early January when all of the results will be discussed.
I cooked fish for Hubby and a tomato and mushroom pasta for me so we’ve eaten well today. More importantly, he has had a substantial meal before his cut off time.

Tonight I have written all my local Christmas cards, some 28 of them, and have four left over, so if I’ve forgotten anyone, I have spares. Tomorrow we may well be putting our tree up! Yay! Christmas is on its way to our house!!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Great day! Well, except for the flat latte and sketchy man. If this were a mystery novel…

  2. There is nothing worse than bad coffee except being overcharged for it! Fingers crossed for good results.

  5. Bad coffee should be illegal….

    I really miss people watching. The pandemic has reduced the people and the opportunities to indulge. I got my tree up and it looks nice this year – son#1 helped me.

  7. Hope the results are good and the tree brings you joy.

  8. I love trains, especially at Christmas! So magical!
