Last Thursday I spent my afternoon in A & E ( I get to go to all the best places) with E. Trips to accident and emergency (for minor injuries obviously) are always a tedious business. If you're lucky you're there with a child who is ok enough to whine about it and you can… Continue reading Nothing says fun like a trip to Accident and Emergency ….
