As promised earlier I am proud to introduce the latest victim/volunteer Just William, my new pair of hands. Hopefully I won't manage to scare him off on his first appearance.
Right then, on with the job in hand. This week I've pretty much had a full service. It started off at the beginning of the week with a trip to the grooming parlour otherwise known as the chiropodist. Nothing much to report other than the usual clipping and general tidy up. Tuesday, as I explained in the last blog I went up to see The Butcher and if you read the last blog you will know what that is all about. I actually managed to have a day off Wednesday although most of the day was spent nursing my wounds from the nasty horrible man the day before. Thursday, as the regular readers of this load of tripe will know was my monthly visit to see Merlin at Heath Towers. As usual I arrived early to try and jump the queue but as many of you know this never works out in my favour, however this time it did and within half hour and I must say in the first attempt, was hooked up and slowly making my through the three bottles of sherry/immunoglobulin. After asking a few times if Merlin was actually going to appear he eventually did not long before I was due to finish. I was beginning to think after what we talked last month that he was avoiding me. I was wrong although I am not totally convinced because he did say that he had contacted the commissioner of finance and was waiting for him to write back. I also showed him some changes with my skin condition which is causing some concern at the moment. The two patches of skin on each of my arms where the pigment has gone and left a kind of tea stain behind have got bigger and the edges have become a lot darker. Also, I've noticed a kind of wart on my right hand (like an alien trying to escape from my hand). He was not too sure what this could be although he seems to think that it is probably some sort of fungal infection but is going to contact the dermatologist to get them to look at it. As you all know with Merlin's past record I won't hold my breath although you can be assured that I'll be kicking his ass next month if he still hasn't done anything. I did pass on Peters and my Favourite Cous' comments on to him too which seemed to fall on deaf ears. I also reminded him about contacting the Eye clinic to try and sort out this annoying problem with my sight and he did his usual trick of looking all innocent and sayings "haven't they sorted that yet". So after three hours or so it was time remarkably to make my way home which is a bit of a record for them as it usually five or six hours. Today was just the usual Day Care work and to be honest a pretty boring one at that. So nothing much to report on there.
Ok then, as you will know I'm off on my hols next week but I will try and blog before then but if I don't manage it you can all have a weeks rest from my rants as there is no internet access at the hotel, aren't you all lucky??
So then, what do you all think of William's first performance? Please be kind because if you scare him off I'll be coming after you to take his place.
