C’mon Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Enjoying some “R&R” up at Crieff Hydro this weekend with the family. It’s been good fun so far and the kids are loving it, making the most of the swimming pool, play park and pony rides. With us all staying in the same room though I think Raashi and I will need some proper R&R once we get back to Glasgow! We used to be sun lounging all day kind of people on holiday. Sadly those days are gone now. An ideal 5* holiday destination for me would now be a week in bed to be honest. No flights, luggage, queuing or quarantining required – bliss.

Believe it or not I used to think a Pony was a baby horse – apparently they’re not 🤷🏻‍♂️

I’m excited for Scotland’s first game at the Euro’s on Monday, it’s a shame that neither of the Ireland’s made it but having lived in Glasgow for 15 years now I like to consider myself part Scottish anyway. Especially as my Irish accent is nearly fully gone and I’m now left only with the Graeme McDowell version. (For those who don’t know Graeme – he’s an Irish golfer but his accent is now more American/Irish/Dutch/I don’t know what). It’s bad form of him to pass me his accent and not even an ounce of his golfing ability too. 🙄

It was very difficult/distressing to watch the scenes at the Euro’s yesterday with Christian Ericksen, the Danish player who collapsed and needed CPR on the pitch. I was so delighted to see he has stabilised now in hospital, hoping he goes on to make a full recovery and enjoys his Extra Time brought about by the amazing medical staff at the stadium 👏🏼❤️. We have one of the defibillator machines in our practice too, fingers crossed we never have to use it, but it’s good to know these are now cropping up in more and more places like shopping centres etc just incase they are ever needed. Incidentally they were invented by a Professor from N.Ireland, Frank Pantridge. Well done, Prof! 🙌🏼 What we lack in football we make up for in medical inventions, golf and dodgy accents.

I’m excited to get back to work next week after being off on Medical leave after a recent op. All went well and I’m ready to get back to it. We’re also doing our best to get a lot of our regular check up reminders sent back out at the moment however please call us if you haven’t heard and would like to book in as we can actually do them again now. Looking forward to seeing my patients again and catching up with you all.

Take care everyone and have a good week,

Joe
