Maybe a bit of light relief sort of on the well being sideÖ

I had a doctorís appointment today (taxi there and back). I saw the GP who decided I should have a blood test and gave me a piece of paper to take to the hospital. The (local, limited facilities but it runs several clinics, minor casualty, and other bits that can spare people in my area the say 30 mile trip to the main one) hospital is about 400yds from the surgery and they have a drop in system Ė pick up a ticket and wait until its number is displayed Ė for blood tests so I walked across, had the sample taken and came back to wait for the taxi.

Not long after getting home, the big toe on my right foot started to hurt. I took the shoe off that foot and I realised the shoe in my hand was the left one! Iíd just visited my GP and the hospital with shoes on the wrong feet!

The shoes are lightweight, fairly flexible trainers with Velcro fasteners and I donít always look down to fasten them so maybe that partly explains how I managed it in the first instance but Iím still amazed I didnít notice the mistake for so long.
