Timing

I have just had a call from the hospital to tell me that the appointment to remove the lesion from my leg is 8:30 this Thursday.

The day before our house completion.

I was told that I shall need to avoid touching or accidentally knocking the wound for a couple of weeks whilst it heals.

That should curtail my house move activities a little.   I shall just have to supervise instead.

  1. I'm sure you'll be glad when Thursday's behind you. Have you got a moving date yet? Hopefully just after Christmas rather than spending Christmas Day surveying a pile of boxes and thinking where the hell's the roasting pan?!

    1. We are supposed to start moving in over the weekend. I won't be much help but I can certainly tell P where to put things!

  2. Good timing. You can sit and give advice. Doctor's orders. Won't P be happy

  3. I hope all goes well on Thursday. You can always concentrate on the move to take your mind off what's happening on your leg!

  4. Good luck. Play it for all you can get. I'm not convinced Coppa'sG got that last bit the right way round.

    1. Playing for sympathy doesn't generally work well in our house.

    1. Thank you for your kind wishes YP.
      And yes, my instructions to his Lordship are likely to be succinct and not easily misinterpreted.

  9. Best of luck on Thursday...and on the move this weekend. All you need now in your new home is a well-positioned soft chair with an ottoman for you to rest your leg and a pointer stick so that you may direct P on the placement of everything else. A little baton. Won't he be thrilled? :)

    1. I wasn't much good at that in my working life... perhaps I'll be better at it now that I am retired!

  13. Although supervising might not come naturally, I hope you'll let it come easily. As I told my wife when we moved into our house 20-plus years ago, you have the rest of your life to unpack. (Good luck, by the way).

  16. As long as the boxes are put in the new house and the movers, if you have employed a removal company, they can do the assembly of the bed and furniture. Unpacking in the main can wait. A light bit of work will keep the circulation going. Have a good move.

    1. P is going to move all the smaller items himself and a friend has offered to help out. He is going to use a local "man and a van" Service for the large items. I won't be able to help for the next couple of weeks unfortunately. Doctor's orders.
