    I've heard other folks say similar. Believe me, I was away with the faeries and when the orthopaedic consultant came in, I said, 'Hi handsome and who are you then?' :oops:

    Luckily, it was before my husband arrived at the hospital.

    Ha ha.......

    I remember coming home from a 3am emergency visit to A&E floating and away with fairies. My husband had to pour me from the car. Apparently I promised him s. e. x like he'd never had before.......I think he might have been put off this generous offer by the sight of me hugging the bog not long after :(

    I think medical staff are used to this. My sister told her consultant (female) what nice legs she had. She couldn't stop herself saying what's she was thinking.
    Right I need to hijack this thread now . I'm panicking about moving house. Where shall I start with packing clothes, handbags and shoes etc? Don't tell me to throw stuff away as it would be a waste!

    When I had morphine all it did was stop me screaming in agony and then I fell asleep. By the sounds of things that was lucky!

    As far as you know all you did was fall asleep :)

    Who knows what you really did or said.......

    I was given morphine when I was passing kidney stones.

    It was wonderful. Not everyone reacts badly to this wonderful pain-killing gift.

    Pitfalls of working in a charity shop: coming home with 'bargains' . Yesterday, I just 'had to have' a gorgeous little Phase Eight jacket for under a tenner and a lovely Primarni coat, also under a tenner. Now, the jacket is a keeper - will look fab with jeans or something dressy - but the coat ( think Audrey Hepburn black, brocade) might have to go back. If I bring things home, I need to donate otherwise my house will begin to resemble a shop. Have mastered the till and can now steam garments. Love it!

    My Mum, aged 83 with advanced Alzheimers, demanded that her suppository be inserted by the 'pretty one' - a young Pakistani junior doctor - who was forever after known by his colleagues as 'pretty boy'.

    Aaah, morphine. I had diamorphine during labour and I can totally understand why people get addicted. It was The Best.
    When I was on it, I was explaining to the midwife and my husband all about Leonardo da Vinci cartoons - no, not drawings. Cartoons. There's a difference you see and I had to make sure they really understood. That fairly civilised discussion descended into me informing the midwife and husband that I had a rocket launcher and I was going to shoot a plane out of the sky.

    Would you like to reprise that drawings/cartoons lecture here? Because I'll admit I don't know.

    The art world refers to them as cartoons, GDW. I don't even know why, but that didn't stop me spraffing on about it at the time.

    When my Dad was in recovery after heart surgery he was totally off his head on the drugs, it was hilarious. He was telling the nurse his life story including some top secret stuff from when he was working on radar at the end of the War (I don't think it's secret any more). He kept saying 'I'm the luckiest man in the world, the luckiest man in the world!'. The nurse managed to keep a straight face but my daughter and I couldn't.

    Spraffing!! What a fab word!!

    My husband is Scots and has given me a selection of wonderful words so thank you for adding to my repertoire!! One of my favourites is 'fankled'!! :D

    I'm rubbish. Only make-up in my house is black Kajel eyeliner and black mascara. Clothes? Ach, since I expanded I lost the desire to care about them. Handbags - I get Sister Spirit's cast-offs. She does handbags in a big way and I have inherited Anya Hindmarch's, a variety of Mulberry's and more Skipping Girl handbags than you could chuck a stick at.

    Shoes were my weak spot

    Several pairs of each in varying colours. But I've been good lately not bought any new ones for about 18 months.
