Did I tell this story?
ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
An  ex girlfriend of mine from 20ish years ago (rare breed, we still communicate) is a doctor currently overseas in a very troubled area. Superb cellist and alto singer, too, we met at a Radiohead concert and were in a choir together.

The Other Child (15 months) fell off the bed and landed on her head (She also cut her ear on the bedside table but this is incidental to the story). Anyhoo: she's got this lump on her neck with a bruise on it. Otherwise seems absolutely normal. I am not worried but the Big Dog was making noises over it all, so i said I would ask if anything should be done. So  i hit this lass up on facebook messenger and get over it all. (Part of me sometimes feels bad over this in a "here's what you could have won" way, but my ego knows no bounds). She says no real cause for concern but keep an eye out.

3 days later and there's this massive light red expanding patch on  the top of the kid's head. I'm shitting bricks over this when i see it and start typing out a long message as to just what i should do and how should i explain it away to The Authorities. I am convinced it is a fractured skull bleeding  out under the skin. I'm about to hit send and bounce this panic to the other side of the world and MrsA appears, holding the red paint stained clothes that were the casualty of the day's painting at nursery.


So. Yeah.


Being a doctor on social media must be worse than being a geek. Instead of people messaging you with 'why is my 15 year-old computer running slowly?', it's 'why does it hurt when I do this?' and 'should my stools be this colour (see attached)?'

Worked my nuts off for the last 6 days in Denmark moving our office. All done aside from the tosser local phone company who I've been chasing to move the site phone numbers and line for 6 weeks (old and new office are next door to each other as well!)

As of now there is a cable with one end in the basement and one end in the office both of which need joining to things, 30 mins work.

They will be back in 7 days despite a promise it would be done today :(

Aside from this its gone well, everything done on time and although it was long days I have enjoyed myself. We are supposed to have "global" server people at work, but they are far from it. So I got to get my hand dirty putting in and removing servers and network stuff, not done this for years.

Office opens tomorrow and I will be praised by all the EU senior managers who are over for a wine and cheese type party.

Its more a case of how totaly shit IT was before I was given this office to look after than how great I am!

Still its getting me more pofile with people and more interesting stuff to do these days.

Of course the biggest Yay is I will see my wife and kids tomorrow night :)

Will they be praising you over cheese and wine while you sit in the airport debating over the expensibility of a cup of inadequate tea?

The offspring got her final blood test results back today - she has an infection level of 1 which the doctors are very pleased about. I don't know if the scale goes from 1 to 100 or 1 to 3 but either way the Docs are pleased and she's finished her course of antibiotics and is back at school tomorrow.

She was at mine at the weekend and she was back to her old self managing to remind me whenever I asked her to lift a finger that "I've just been in Hospital".

Sounds like a really satisfying bit of work there. Well done.

They were very happy and ridiculously generous, the head of the EU sent a minion out to get presents for my kids as I had worked the weekend as part of a 7-day stint

Would rather not have worked the weekend, but it's rare I have to and you need the time for unforeseen things with these moves.

I had to make them take back some £90 Lego Starwars ship they bought for my son, it was too complex and too bloody big for my case :)

They had got it from a Mall over the road so I got a smaller set for him, they also bought really nice clothes for our baby as well

Very nice and unexpected

I just burnt my thumb reasonably badly but I get smoked chicken, sausages and streaky bacon in a couple of hours.

Nay: Mrs Squirt bought a bottle of some fancy essential oil stuff and the dropped it and it smashed, and I had to pick bits of glass up everywhere.

Yay: I smell fucking lovely this morning.
