    so this afternoon I was watching the indian doctor, and one of the patients asked him to come home because it was time to give birth.

    so he went with them and got ready for human birth, only to find out later it was a cow

    he’s like um, sorry, I only treat humans, I don’t treat cows. you should call a vet

    lol I found that amusing

    today I took my friend to the hospital to go to the specialised pain clinic and that’s not really a reason to laugh but at the entrance there is a device to sanitize your hands, you tread on the foot pedal holding your hands underneath the little tap and a certain amount of disinfectant gets squirted on your hands. While we were waiting we were watching people and the amount of people who couldn’t figure out how to press on a foot pedal whilst holding their hands in the correct position was hilarious , we watched person after person but their hands under the little tap but nothing came out ….then they realised oh there’s a foot pedal . Then take their hands away from the tap press on the foot pedal and just watch the disinfectant dribble out then the light would dawn on them”  ohhhh I actually have to hold my hands under the tap whilst also pressing the foot pedal”  Seriously that kind of stupidity you can’t even makeup…!

    They are probably too used to the automatic soap dispensers that are fairly common nowadays Cassandra lol.

    My son. He always makes me laugh and we have a great rapport teasing each other…

    As always he isnt sleeping through the night. Ive just seen that hes been out taking photos at 3 am…My health visitor and doctor told me that by the time he was 5 he would grow out of it and would sleep..  He’s now nearly 39 years old. I think they were a bit off in their estimate.

    Having friendly staff to chat to when being served in the supermarket. Kate is really lovely. I definitely like chatting to Sainsbury’s staff.

    I read a cute comment on an advice column in the Washington Post today.  It was in response to a parent’s letter about a 13-year old son who wanted to blow all his summer earnings on a new smartphone that all his friends have, even though his still works.

    You have to start young with kids.  My daughter from the age of 3 has run a somewhat profitable lemonade stand pulling in about $200 per summer (except for this year, where she successfully applied for and received a $100 bailout payment from Country Time Lemonade).  The profits were hers to keep and do with what she pleased.  She felt empowered to go into Walgreens, Target, etc., and get the things she wanted and at first didn’t have much sense of what things cost or how much money she had left.  She quickly learned however, and always enjoyed buying things to give to her older brother and friends.  One time when she was 7 she brought $40 to the store along with a friend and bought her friend a $20 toy.  The friend’s mom thanked me for buying the toy for her daughter and wanted to repay me, but I explained to her it wasn’t my decision or my money, but my daughter’s and she had complete control over her own money and wanted to do that for her friend.  Anyway, my daughter is almost 9 now and has a relatively good idea how to manage her own small savings and is pretty wise about spending on things she really needs.  It use to be all toys and stuff, but now it’s more thoughtful things like school supplies, a pair of shoes, clothes, etc.  However, if she wanted to buy a phone at age 9, I would say no and already told her that she has to wait until she’s older — still haven’t decided when this will be.  But, in the above case, let the boy buy his phone and let him feel the joy and pain of his decision.  He’ll learn how to manage his money this way much better than any parent telling him what to do with it.

    This made me smile for two reasons:

    1. For those who don’t know, in the US, it’s fairly common for kids to erect lemonade stands in the summer time.  They rarely serve fresh lemonade – that would be too expensive – so, they use a mix.  What made me smile is that Country Time, a popular mix producer, gave bailout payments to kids.  🙂
    2. The little girl is so giving as well as prudent with her money.

    Children, usually girls, do sell things, including drinks, on roadside stands here. It is much more common in the summer, or sometimes clearing out old toys nearer Christmas. It’s amusing about the payments. I cannot see it here but selling is maybe more varied.

    I like the giving bit too! Things like that do happen here but, although having a prudent son (tellingly to become an accountant), he was fair but careful, and never went for the latest phone, but did often get the latest computer games.

    Children here often spread a blanket out on the ground in front of their house or nearby shop and sell unwanted toys or books that they have grown out of.

    On the Kings birthday its normal to see children who have had flute or violin lessons trying to earn a few pennies by playing in the streets..

    Famously 9 yr old Amira Willighagen decided to learn a song so that she could join her brother when he played his violin and it has led to a career..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtPMlTumunQ

    I love the story of the otters. In fact it’s not unusual to bring animals together like that but the romance makes it <3
