I haven't blogged for a few days and I know that's not like me.

I have been very busy, helping to train some new Simulated Patients in Leeds for two days and then yesterday going over to Wigan to play a very challenging role for some trainee GPs.

But that's not it. It's that there are some very tricky things going on at the moment, and I can't write about them yet, but they have sent my Worry Level shooting even higher than usual - and, let's face it, it is usually pretty high!

One good thing is that Gareth has been driving an eighteen-ton truck all over Yorkshire delivering festive wine and beer to the pubs of the county! It's really hard work, and I think he's getting on well with it. Great!

Hope things turn out all-right in the end, Daphne.

Well, whatever is causing the blog-clog or blogjam - I hope it is resolved soon as I need my Daphinian "fix" most every day. If I weren't a Yorkshireman, I'd probably write "big hugs" to you.

You train doctors AND simulated patients? At least you don't train simulated doctors....

Do you?

Eighteen tonne, not eighteen ton! There's nearly a two ton difference.

Sorry, I didn't understand Gareth's comment. 18 tonne is 2 ton less than 18 ton? So a tonne is not a ton? I thought only the spelling was different as in program and programme. Obviously, I'm wrong. I do know that a mile and a nautical mile are different, but my father was in the Navy.

Please explain! I'm fascinated!

Bob - a ton is the Imperial measure that I was brought up with - a hundred and twelve pounds in a hundredweight, twenty hundredweights in a ton!
Whereas a tonne is a metric measure - a thousand kilograms.
(And I didn't know that until Gareth pointed it out!)
