Has anyone called since? Would dialing 1471 help?

Otherwise I'd call the children's hospital and explain the problem. They may be qble to look up the the appointment next Thursday in your daughter's name.

at least he tried.
my converstaions are always..
me - "x just called and asked why i didn't phone him after he left a message yesterday"
DS1 - <<puzzled look followed by sudden comprehension and smacking of forhead>> - "DAMMIT"

Hide the phone.
Tell him not to answer.
Get an answerphone so he can screen calls in your absence.

which of course is marginally better than my DS who writes the message down... oh yes he does you know, it's just that he writes it on a random piece of paper that isn't found for about a week!

male genes = complete inability to take messages dont they?

Hubby does the scrap paper thing too, completely illegible then leaves it "on the desk somewhere" never to be seen again.

I do the scrap of paper thing in my own house!
