While I was lying back ignoring the pain from the fat tube in my vein and chatting to the nurse she said 'What are you doing later, for the rest of the afternoon?' I thought my luck was in. 'I am going to finish the work I was doing on a stable roof then walk the dog' I said. 'Roof?' she said, 'Roof? No way can you go on a roof. You aren't even supposed to climb a ladder after you have given blood.'
Nice afternoon off. Just me and the dog.
