DZ is retired. But he can't seem to stay away from the coal face and has been doing a little locum work. Doing what work you want, when you want, without having to worry about keeping your job has restored DZ enjoyment of the work he does. Having the freedom to just speak your mind and walk out the door if the situation arose is very liberating.
And it doesn't take long. On my arrival I was challenged and asked where my ID badge was. I've been wanting to use this line for years.

There's another line I've been wanting to use. Not going to give it away just yet, but for those of you old enough think Patrick McGoohan and Portmeirion.


  1. Loved that program, there are 2 quotes that encapsulate the modern NHS perfectly. I will wait to see which one you use. I did have badges with both quotes but I am not allowed to wear them nowadays.

  2. I know that feeling very well.
