Ailz's physio says the reason physios are better at giving injections than doctors is that doctors in med school practice on oranges whereas physios practise on one another and themselves.


I don't like needles. I trace this back to an incident in boyhood when we took my baby sister to the clinic to have a jab and at the very last moment my mother sprang it on me that I was having one too.  I have vivid memories of weeping bitterly and having to be dragged out from under a table. 

She meant well.

This morning, while Ailz was getting seen to, I sat  in the waiting room and read a couple of nearly-up-to-date women's magazines. I value these opportunities to mug up on celebrity culture. Today, for instance, I learned about Kerry Catona's cocaine habit and how she's fallen out with her mum and finally discovered just who this Lindsay Lohan character is.
