    Hi Kayleigh,

    Phew, I'm glad you realised I was joking! By the way, I love the way you grovel so well. Ha ha ha. And your extra-corny jokes were brilliant. The ward has run out of cornflakes so at least I'll be able to have breakfast tomorrow!

    Hi Dina,

    Phew! I'm glad you've confirmed you weren't being serious! LOL

    LOL. Otherwise, I might have looked like a right numpty - especially if you'd "scorned" me, postIng "What are you going on about Kayleigh? - I wasn't joking!!". But, being the banter-babe I am, I would have thought that was just 'bants' too! LOL

    If you need more cornflakes for breakfast, there's a corner shop I know in Runcorn, called 'Corny's Corn-venience Store' that stocks it. I could ask Mr Cornelius to send you some!

    He also stocks packets of peppercorns (next to the tins of corn-chowder) and cartons of cornets (close to the tubs of popcorn flavoured ice-cream and 'Cornettos').

    'Corny's' also supplies cornflour and cornflower (but make sure you order the right one, especially if you want to use it to thicken your custard or gravy! LOL).

    Also, I understand that 'Corny's' have just cornered the market in pet corn-fed unicorns! - yes, I know, it sounds a bit crazy (pet unicorns that only eat corn? LOL) - but don't worry, if you buy one of the unicorns and run out of corn, I understand they are also very happy to be fed acorns too!

    I was going to offer you more kernels for your breakfast but, as the saying goes, that might be "over-egging the pudding" a bit - or, indeed, "over-corning the cob!" LOL

    Hugs

    That's fabulous news Dina!

    Thanks for letting us know. I had been getting worried.

    Now calm down and stop jigging about like a Doll-in-the-Box. You'll pull out the plumbing!

    All fingers crossed, which makes typing this damn difficult.

    But how are the rest of the ward and staff going to manage once their ray of sunshine departs?

    Hugs

    Ha ha ha, Doug. They’ve organised a massive party at a club called Caesar’s for Thursday night to celebrate getting shot of me!

    No, seriously, thank you everyone. I haven’t dared believe it would happen until today. Thank you all for your support. I’ve had some dreadfully low days, watching my abilities shrink whilst the CHC dragged its heels. I can’t tell you how much the support I’ve received from forum members has meant to me. Isn’t it great that we have this forum space and can help each other ?
