Stage two was when we had to take Dolly up to hospital rather unexpectedly last week to have a series of scans and tests done. Now you would think that to an eight year old all the prodding, scanning, probing, jabbing and widdling on demand might seem a tad disconcerting, as it certainly was for mum.
Not at all. Thanks not only to the super medical staff on the ward and in the radiology department, but largely to the wards Play Therapist.
Don't you mean physiotherapist I hear you say. No. Play Therapist. Someone who looked after the little patients by providing suitable games, puzzles, activities and crafts to keep them occupied between examinations and tests.
Someone who explained in child friendly terms exactly what would be happening and why. I found that useful myself! Someone who played 'Where's Wally?' to expertly distract whilst bloods were being taken. And someone who made mums and dads a proper mug of tea.
Brilliant job, and that's what I want to be when I grow up.
PS Dolly say hospital fish and chips are the best in the world
PPS all tests came back clear :-)

you have become on the old tinterweb when you don't have it.
Im going to have to actually walk into a shop to buy my groceries!
And does anyone know if you can book a hotel by telephone?
Worst of all, no access to online coverage of tomorrows Ulster match.
Might have to see if I can borrow a wireless set for that one.
So, if you're trying to communicate with me in a hurry, you might want
to forego email and try the phone. I'm sure we have a landline

One pupil suddenly says 'look Miss, there's that other tower in the picture too. WOW! That arch must be massive, the tower looks tiny beside it.'
I actually heard myself saying it ... no, it's not small, it's just .....
