Hawkesbury Junction (Sutton Stop) - Coventry Canal
On the Monday before we set off, I took our prescriptions to the doctors for signature. Normally they are signed and sent electronically to Boots for pick up.
I phoned Boots on Saturday and they had not recieved our scripts, so a quick trip back to Birmingham on the bus to pick them up would be a waste of time.
So, today we got up early, ordered a taxi to Coventry railway station, took the train back into Birmingham and were at the surgery for their opening at 0800. "Yes", they had our prescriptions, "But they need to be signed. Come back at 1230 when the doctor has seen all his patients."
Not happy bunnies to put it mildly. So we went back to our empty mooring, checked the mail and went for a swim in the Hyatt hotel.
Back at the surgery for 1030 and a wait for the doctor to finish his surgery - he was an hour over time, so EVENTUALLY at 1.30 we got the scripts and then had to wait another 15 minutes at the chemists to get all the pills.
Then back to the station, a train to Coventry and another taxi back to the boat. Only cost us £30 in taxis and £16.00 for the train. We are changing our doctors as soon as we get back.
A pretty little card just using an embossed white card panel with some lilac ribbon tied around it tied with a knot. The topper is added with demensionals, the computer generated sentiment is also fixed with dimensionals and two lilac gems are stuck to the top right hand corner.
