Tea Time!

A special treat - teapot and cups 

My husband is still in hospital - it has been nearly nine weeks - but some of the staff at Southlake in Newmarket have made my husband's stay quite nice.

Jane is a special member of the staff.  So far I have never seen Jane grumpy even though some patients are slobs  messy and it's Jane's job to keep their room's spic and span.  Plus if a patient wants an extra pillow (or just about anything else in the supply closet), it's Jane who cheerfully fetches it.

But Jane topped herself on Friday when, for no special reason - except that she felt like it  - she brought from home a teapot and some teacups to serve tea to her patients and their guests.

Thanks, Jane!

FYI: This would have been a better photo if I had engaged the flash on my camera

Rose said...

What have I missed???? I feel like such a dummy...going back now and seeing all your posts that mentioned hospital. When I get behind like I have been I go back and mostly glance to see what photos you post...I feel like a complete jerk to not have realized something was wrong.

You don't have to tell me what is wrong, but I do hope for a complete recovery...
