And Jonathan Miller. He was the speaker at my graduation in the early eighties.

 

I used to have a little crush on Jonathan Miller :wub: :crying:

You're probably too young to remember him. Google him. He was talented in many fields

There is no nastier way to start the day than to have to get up and go and get a blood  test done without having any breakfast. I had better go to bed now or I will oversleep and procrastinate yet again. Tomorrow morning I really must get round to it and   no one should  risk speaking  to me until I have come home and had a cup of hot coffee and a croissant.

I feel your pain. Once had to have a (completely unnecessary) glucose tolerance test done while pregnant, which involved not eating for four hours after having no breakfast.  I hope you enjoy your croissant.

Hope all is done now, and you can have your breakfast - and plenty of it! 

 

Wonderful memory of staggering into St Mike’s church hall - which in those days ran a café - after an early morning blood test, and finding a plate of freshly made warm, spicy bread pudding.  That and a hot coffee - I don’t think anything has hit the spot in quite the same way since.  :-D

Oh yes, there is a nastier way!
Try drinking 4 litres of the revolting liquid you have to get down on an empty stomach before a colonoscopy....

Oh yes. Indeed it is utterly revolting - done that twice.

On Sunday I had a fruitless search in Birmingham's German Christmas market for an Advent calendar for my parents - only to learn afterwards that my dad had ordered one from Amazon. Sigh.

Got home, drank coffee, ate croissant and became human again! Also having read the above posts  became thankful that it  wasn't as bad as a coonoscopy and I really had nothing to moan about! Maggie, I can smell that bread pûdding. what bliss that must have been!

I haven't had to go through this but I kept my pregnant sister company while she did- she had to drink a bottle of sickly-looking-and-tasting bright orange liquid after the overnight fast.

Parcel coming tomorrow.

I am not here.

I clicked on the rearrange delivery button.

You can only rearrange delivery after the first delivery attempt has failed :(

 

Have registered a preference that if they fail to deliver to me, they deliver to the local drop off point.  Intrigued as to whether that will be tomorrow, or if it has to fail, then go back to the depot, then be re-deliverded to the drop off point ... which will be Friday, when I am here!
