A great evening is when your wife decides to prepare a special meal. Roast Lamb and roast potatoes!
And then she goes out for the son taxi service job.
Then 5 minutes before I serve the lamb, potatoes and veg a call from Mother-in-law. Turn off oven, go over, call ambulance.
5 hours later I get home because Jane has taken over at casualty. Then a couple of hours later back to the hospital for 1am with clothes and wheelchair to bring her home again. False alarm, no heart attack. One now very chirpy mother-in-law in bed eating some supper.
Well maybe it isn't quite my idea of a great evening. But wow it could have been a lot worse! Off to bed now.
