A slightly strange experience today. I had to go to the hospital for a check up and after negotiating the lift that decided it wanted to go all the way to the top floor before coming back down to where I needed to be I made my way to the correct department.
I waited for a few minutes before going to see the consultant and after he had examined me, he asked me if I had been to Sheffield University and specifically if I had been a resident of Tapton Hall. It suddenly clicked that he had lived on the same corridor as me for a year, twenty or so years ago.
Crikey. Talk about a blast from the past. I put my name on Friends Reunited a few years ago, but I didn’t recognize any of the alumni from that era. In some ways it seems like yesterday, and in others it feels like a different world. Ah well, the past is a different country.
In other news, fencing tonight was excellent, sweaty fun with lots of rapier and buckler vs rapier and dagger action in preparation for the forthcoming assessments. Hoorah – I love fencing!
