Not that often then :slight_smile:

I don’t like ‘passed’ or ‘passed away ‘ particularly or the use of sleeping to refer to death ( except I don’t mind ‘ born asleep ‘ for a baby) I remember years ago a doctor left then came back and asked where one of our long term patients who had died in the interim had gone. ‘ He’s gone to his celestial home ‘ replied my colleague ‘ Oh’ said doctor ‘ is that a new nursing home in Fulwood ‘

C’est compliqué…

Mostly at work though…

Yeah, that really gets on my ****

Well it would be in Fulwood wouldn’t it?
Or perhaps St Annes.
