What an old misery! I got a bit carried away with my last post, sorry!
Anyway let me tell you about the ward my uncle is in. It is single sex and it's just as well judging by the man in the bed next to Uncle. He was lying there this afternoon in a shortie dressing-gown, fallen open to reveal ... boxer shorts (but I don't think he'd have cared if he hadn't been wearing any).
And now Uncle has phoned to ask if we can get him some shorts as he won't be able to wear pyjamas after his op. I shall make sure I get generously-cut long shorts!
Husband isn't sure if I can be trusted to go and buy them. When Husband was in hospital for weeks at a time having chemotherapy I thought he needed some new pyjamas. Nice bright yellow ones. 'To cheer you and everyone up!' I explained as he opened them.
It was years later he told me he hated them ...
