Gardening leave

Tag: I'm Fine,JournalKal @ 11:54 pm

Dear readers.

Trauma Queen is having a mid life crisis and is trying to decide where it wants to go next.

I’m trying to stop it from buying a motor cycle.

In the meantime, here’s some music.

Doo be doooo doodooodoooo.

    Probably find that the Organ Donor Machine is easier to access than that garden of yours :-)

    And how many times have you scraped up bits of motorcyclists off the road and done the body jigsaw? So buy a trike instead! Much more stable and less likely to die on. Cos we dont want you to die or be seriously injured. And if you have a trike you can lots of adventures and come back and tell us your adventures and continue the blog as…. “The Adventures of the Amazing Green Trauma Queen”! There, mid-life crisis sorted for you ;-D

    you get one hot lap in a medical car and want to become a boy racer… get a grip man!!! Besides which, you know Fester will do something to the bike as continued payback…

    Don’t be long,


  9. Cath says:

    Meh…. don’t get a bike, they’re so last century. Get a plane. Learn to fly. Or be a paramedic somewhere else, like the antarctica, or an oilrig, or….

    So… Thinking of upgrading your pushbike to a motorbike? Can I come for a ridealong?

    PS Did you delete the archive on purpose? Sad times if you did, they were an amazing collection of stories!

    As long as you don’t bleach your hair and get one of those awful mid life crisis surfer dude necklaces.

    Don’t stop writing, it might just help you through this motorbike-blip. Having said that, motorbikes are great fun ;)


  20. David says:

    whaht? nooooooo.. (or at least come back soon.. ish.. with lots of interesting motorcycle/Scottish/medical/life stories )


  21. Cath says:

    BTW, I know that music. It’s called “Not leaving you now, just taking a break”. Right, Kal? Right??
    Kal, step away from the cookies! The cake is a lie! Nooooooo….


  22. Sapph says:

    Love the blog. Photos/writing whatever. Please come back soon!


  23. Piper says:

    Don’t do it (the motorcycle)…..

    Are you’re not old enough for a mid-life crisis.

    Change the name of the blog, and tell us all your thoughts :)


  24. Peter says:

    Buy the motorbike, they’re huge fun!

    Although, coincidentally, also responsible for the only time I’ve met a paramedic…..


  25. Tom says:

    Don’t go far Kal. Truly one of the most entertaining blogs around.

    Don’t disappear! Please? Your blog’s too awesome for that.

    Love Bobbi x


  27. Oli says:

    No….what’s going to distract me from writing my dissertation. Hope you do come back soon.


  28. Patty says:

    And no archives to read while we wait, impatiently, for you to return!? *wailing*


  29. Jon Richards says:

    If your going to buy a bike make sure you get an all in one so your colleagues don’t have to spend time searching for bits! Alternatively put a business case together and get your service to put one on the road, a couple of lads did it down here and are loving getting paid for biking!!

    Dear Kal, long time reader here. First thank you for all the life stories
    you’ve shared with us. Your humour, insight and experiences brighten,
    enlighten and educate us and I know that many of us look forward to
    reading your next post. Having said all that, sometimes it’s important
    to sit back and coast for a while. I know I will miss you and the sometimes
    haunting, sometimes uproarious stories but I wish you peace and rest
    and happiness in whatever you need to be doing just now and in the future.
