A woman from the Council came by yesterday morning- dropping in on the off chance- when we were still in our pyjamas- with a view to improving our quality of life. The last time this happened was ten years ago, but Ailz really gingered the Town Hall up when she got a Councillor involved in the affair of the step lift. Among other minor adjustments, this woman, Diane, is looking at putting in a couple of ramps so we can get our wheelchair and scooter out the back gate more easily. After she'd finished with us, the poor kid was going straight on to the dentist for a bout of root canal work.

Carl's Karen was attacked by a patient yesterday evening. He head butted her on the shoulder a few times before she managed to get her leg behind his and drop him. She has a hairline fracture which the doctor says will take longer to heal than a clean break would. Someone in authority- eager to accentuate the positive- congratulated the care home on bringing the patient- who must have been limp on admittance- to such a robust state of mental and physical health.

I watched Flight of the Conchords last night. They were taking the rip out of Bowie. It's a very funny show- Laurel and Hardy for the Noughties.
