Bless them, Darrell and Nigel saw this poster and were very willing to donate all of their blood, until I pointed out that they only need to take a pint at a time ……. but ….
…… I felt that I had to be robustly honest when I also told them, that though it was selfless thought, I wasn’t entirely sure who the medical people would give their blood to, especially Nigel’s! Since just the sight of his own blood makes Darrell go queasy, seeing a great big bag of it collecting beside him as he donated, might not be the best of ideas ….
I said that if they really wanted to donate something, perhaps Darrell should sort through his old clothes and Nigel his toys and they could “donate” them to the charity shop up the road and I would give them free tea and biscuits afterwards!!!
