I've spent much of today in hospital wards and waiting rooms; where staff are kind and caring and dispense care and sympathy to all-comers 24/7. They are places where an hour can last a day and vice versa; you're as well taking your watch off when you enter through their cavernous sliding doors - you leave when you leave. I have no right to judge, I wasn't there in a patient capacity. Not today.
So the time passes - reading, listening to podcasts, looking up to see if there's a familiar trolley being wheeled in your direction. And then, when you need a shot in the arm (vending machine coffee ain't all that), a few tunes to tap your toe to on the cleanest floors this side of anywhere.
This isn't remotely medically linked or themed, but it appeared in my ears twice today. It's Nick Lowe's brand new single which has its official release next week. I hope you like it.

Always got time for Nick, live that one. Sounds like a classic already.ReplyDelete
I hope you don't have to spend any time in hospital in a patient capacity any time soon, John.

Thank you Rol. My admiration for both the NHS and Nick Lowe knows no bounds.Delete
I have had the Love Starvation EP pre-ordered for what feels like forever. It can't get here soon enough.ReplyDelete
It'll be worth the wait!Delete
I'm sorry to hear you've had to spend time at hospital, albeit not as a patient, and hope that all will be well for the person concerned very soon.ReplyDelete
Thank you C.Delete
Hope all is well John. I've spent a lot of time in hospitals of late with my mum and know how time can drag - good you had access to a few good tunes.ReplyDelete
Having just read Adam Kay's book This Is Going To Hurt, I have a whole new respect for everyone working on the frontline in the NHS - A really tough job that seems to be getting tougher by the year.
I saw Adam Kay earlier in the year doing TIGTH live. It was *so* good.Delete
