Happy days

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Number 2 son had his final after-school golf lesson yesterday.  Well, when I say he had his final lesson, what I mean is he had half of it.  The other half was spent in the doctors’ surgery bleeding from the head wound caused by being hit at full swing with a golf club.

The doctor checked him over and put a paper stitch on the wound and sent him home.  This was roughly 4:30pm by the time we got him from school and to the doctors.  It wasn’t a huge cut but it had punctured the deep layer of skin and it bled quite a lot.  And continued to bleed hours later.

We phoned the out of hours doctor who told us that because their surgery is next door to the A&E at the hospital they wouldn’t put some fresh stitches on it.  So Mrs Sane toddled off to A&E with him at about 7:30pm and returned in tears 3 hours later because he’d still not been seen and the nurses kept telling her that he was next in line but sending through adults before him that appeared to have no symptoms at all.

Anyway, I took him back down and they’d just called him not long before we arrived for the second time when we got there so he went through pretty quickly, got seen by a doctor and had the cut glued.  We ended up getting home at about 1am.  Which is nice.

He’s fine anyway, no serious damage but he says he’s not going for golf lessons again!

    Is using golf bats as weapons, a wise thing to be teahing your child?

    What actually happened? was he thumped by a fellow golfer who was not paying attention?

    He was hit in the head at full swing – either he or the other child was outside of the safe area that was marked out for them. Luckily it was only a plastic club as they’re only 8 year olds, I don’t want to think about what would have happened if it was a metal club. He spent the weekend at his granny’s and came home with a present from a relative … two golf clubs. :s
