Seemed like a good idea at the time...

I have been tagged by the charming Jon at JustaTypicalDad for his very first, very own meme!

*Drumroll plz*

5 Things I have done in my life that seemed like a good idea.

  • At school I decided that bunking off (playing truant) and hanging around with the wrong type of people was far more importnant than getting my GCSEs. My whole attitude was 'I'll worry about that later.' and in alot of way, it still is. I am glad that I got this rebel inside me out early, it's just a shame I didn't realise just how hard it would be to get qualified as an adult.
  • Very few of my relationships have been great. Why can't we have crystal ball when it comes to potential partners?
  • That burger. And those biscuits. And that pizza....the double dozen Krispy Kremes. 4 stone later...
  • There was once a...erm...encounter...of a sexual nature...and the lady and I were a bit (Ok, a lot) drunk, and things got quite...mad? Anyway, we're going at it like we were pornstars (you know, as you do) and in the throws of passion I somehow managed to fall (or fly) off the bed with my head hitting the bedside table. HARD. I had split my head open and there was blood everywhere. I needed stitches so off to A&E we went. We are both nurses and that night we knew all the staff that were on duty. They know what we're like, what's the harm of joking with them and telling the truth? The harm is my friend, that after 4 years people still talk about it.
  • Speaking of nursing, there have been thousands of occasions where on reflection perhaps should have been handled differently. Such as taking Mrs X off the commode, changing Mr Y's dressing before he had his bowels open, Letting Miss Z brush her own teeth and then finding the brush dissapearing down her incontinence pad.
So, off the top of my head, there are 5 things that really did, seem like a good idea at the time!
