Emergency! Away I go – to bed #67!

  My 3-week assignment in Liverpool over, I was looking forward to a fairly long break, and catching up with friends not seen for absolute ages, but it wasn’t to be. While on the train from Liverpool, I had a call to please urgently take over from a carer that had fallen, and so made […]
