1999: Mummy has found me an old stethoscope from the loft so all have to call me doctor now – one up on mummy who’s a mere nurse! I even made her say “hello doctor”. Off to Edons who dropped me back off home this afternoon as mummy’s a bit poorly. Don’t fear, doctors here. Mum had made soup and some bread rolls but she’d put chili in the soup and it was HOT!!! I ended up with tomato soup and fell asleep on the settee at six.
2019: My love of medical and emergencies clearly started young. Along with the stethoscope I had lots of toy ambulances, police cars and fire engines. I remember wanting to buy another fire engine in the shop one day and Mum saying I had plenty. I told her “you can never have enough fire engines”. I was only repeating what she always said about shoes (I used to have to physically pull her away from those shops). Haven’t done my police application yet but the forms are there…..
