My mum is suffering from a little ‘word blindness’, especially in the area of names. There is a lady in the ward who is, sadly, a few butties short of a picnic. She has been wandering about and interfering with other patients. Mum has tried to call out her name to get her to leave them alone. Consequently, the old lady has variously been called ‘Lucky’ (our old dog) and ‘Judith’ (my real name!) Any comments about my similarity to a batty old lady will be treated with the contempt they deserve!
