The CUH in Cork also has the condescending voice about smoking but also adds that your cigarette smoke rises and drifts in the windows of the children's wards, killing them in their cots I suppose. But all windows are nailed shut and when I asked why, they said it was a Health & Safety issue. They fear someone might fall out of an open window.

They and the junior doctors tend to be overworked and underpaid. Did you see any Filipino nurses around? They travel the world in search of jobs.

I always shred them. And as for the price of the hospital pig swill coffee, take your own.

Since the hospital is a public building, owned and paid for by the taxpayer, i.e. you – no one can order you not to smoke on the premises. They can only ask you, and if you don't want to stub out your fag, then they have no authority to do anything about it. Let them guess your name too. It is NOT a case of 'their gaff, their rules'.

Life is beginning to settle into a new sort of routine, which is somewhat more frantic and leaves little time for musing or the odd pint or five.  It leaves me bollixed and poor Penny is more confused than ever.
