Word of the Week 13/1/2023 Phone Calls #WotW

My husband will tell you – if he thinks I can’t hear him – that I spend most of my day with a phone stuck to my ear talking to either my Mum or my friend. He may or may not be right.

This week has been full of all sorts of phone calls as I tried to get Madam’s long awaited Orthopedic appointment booked.

She had an appointment with Podiatry on Monday, it was someone we hadn’t seen before and I was asking if he could help move things along. The next day he called me to ask for details of the referral so he could send a letter. In the meantime I rang the number I’d been given (several times) and eventually someone answered. We now have an appointment for February at a local hospital. I phoned the Podiatrist back to give him the good news, turned out he’d been making some calls of his own. Obviously they’d listened to him!

We had a call from the dental practice where Sir goes to tell us his dentist was leaving and also that a special appointment made for him to discuss the possibility of fillings being done under general anaesthetic wasn’t deemed necessary by the dentist that would carry out the work, the risks outweighed the benefit. So that was duly cancelled. I will be keeping an eye on things.

I had to phone the local garage and book my car in for it’s MOT which is due next week.

And of course I’ve phoned my Mum… and my friend…

  1. It sounds like the phone calls really helped with Madam’s appointments. Good on the dentist weighing things up about the general anesthetic. It sounds like a good idea just keeping an eye on things. Good luck with the MOT. x

  2. I’m not good on the phone. I used to spend a lot of time talking to my Mum but now I keep friend’s calls as quick as possible. The longest I’m on the phone is with my ex husband but thankfully he only calls to check in around 3 times a year. I’m glad you sorted out the podiatry appointment, but it’s difficult with the dentist, mine had to refer me to a private dentist for treatment because of my medication, but it was still done on the NHS. I have some calls to make next week and I’m dreading it. I need to sort out a school for the Little Man.

  3. Glad that things have been sorted out with Madam’s orthopaedic referral and hope things are ok with Sir on the dental front. Hope all goes well with the MOT. Lovely to spend time chatting to your mum and your friend on the phone – I don’t spend a lot of time chatting on the phone but my daily phone call to my mum is a very important one! #WotW

  4. It sounds like all the phone calls were needed. I worry about future dentist appointments for Ethan. We will have to deal with those when the time comes. I’m glad you got some of the appointments sorted. I call my mym everyday but we have moved over to facetime #WotW
