Jo comes round Her Landrover is finally fixed and she can go up to west street garage and collect it we are just having a coffee before we go and the phone rings.. withheld… I am not one usually to answer withheld calls 😕 so I gingerly answer and yes as you have guessed it was the school…
Alex has had a mishap in the playground and has a very nasty graze on his arm, They have cleaned it up as much as possible but could I come up and see what I think, So Jo and I get in the car and go up there… we get taken to Alex who is standing there with loads of dressings over his elbow.. and the blood is seeping through.. oh crap I think Is this going to be a hospital job for stitches?
Anyway they lift the dressing and its not that bad really, I mean its not like it needs stitches or anything, Yes a graze… Life threatening hardly!
Did they really need to call me up to go up the school just after Lunchtime with only an hour and a half to go until home time, to actually go and see it? What happened to the good old days when one of the playtime assistants took injured kid with a graze smothered it in TCP or that violet stuff or Dettol that stung like a mother, stuffed a plaster on it and told you to piss off out and play again lol
