Friday morning and Saturday night

Sorting out mum's medication was somewhat farcical, starting with a 20 minute journey to her chemist's first thing to show them the GP's letter so they could provide the new medication. Guess what, it's a new prescription so they can't get it on their usual surgery run, I have to ask for it (why, when the GP has already sanctioned it?). Was going to phone the surgery from work but decided to drop by instead....fifteen minutes later the receptionist had found the new prescription helpfully filled in by the GP (why not post it with the letter to mum?) so back to the chemist's (who could have saved me a lot of bother if they'd phoned the surgery in the first place) and after hanging around a bit, got the medication. Ah well, mission accomplished even if it did make me an hour and a half late for work.
Funny thing, had a good time on our weekend away in Northumberland, great company, lovely hotel, brilliant weather, enjoyable mooches round Bamburgh Castle and Seahouses but...every now and then a niggling feeling of uneasiness that could only have been the guilt trip mum put on me on Thursday night for daring to go off and enjoy myself. Good job I'm not American, the therapy would have bankrupted me!

Glad you had a good weekend. I love Northumberland, especially around Wark and Bellingham.

Me too, the coastline is so unspoilt and beautiful. We're planning to go back in the summer and see the gardens and house at Craigside, which I hear are spectacular, and take a boat trip out to the Farne Islands.
