A long weekend...

Yes, I have a long weekend, having booked Monday off for Mrs RC's birthday.

True to form with anything like this that we attempt, spanners have been thrown into the works.

Firstly, due to carelessness with reading the calendar I booked the wrong day.  Should have been Tuesday.  Ho hum.  We were both under the impression it was Monday, so we shrugged that one off.

But that is a minor inconvenience compared with the latest twist.

Mrs RC has had a pain in her hip/lower back for a week or so.  Doctor said she should have an x-ray.  Guess when it is!  Yep, Monday.  No fixed appointment either, we just have to turn up and wait for someone to call us.  Think we might take a board game with us to pass the time!  We will also take something to read...


Talking of reading, I have been reading for my assignment about Afghanistan.  Fascinating stuff.  I can see myself pushing the limits of the word count again!

More soon - have a great weekend!

My best friend just had a mammogram on her birthday, so why not an x-ray? Although why they couldn't schedule a specific time for this is beyond me! Hope it's over and done quickly so you can get on with enjoying the day together. And I hope it's nothing serious.

Sorry to hear Mrs RC has pain. At least you will be together and like you say, you can play a game and read. You may be surprised and get in early and have the rest of the day together to relax.
Glad you are reading on the Afghanistan assignment. It seems like a fascinating subject to write about.

Oh Lord, best laid plans and all that, eh? Take a hip flask in with you, and a camera - snap a few candid shots of the fellow patients there and put up a caption contest for us the following day. (What?? You want to pass the tme, don't you?)

Hope the x-rays reveal something very minor--or nothing at all! Good luck to you both!
