Folks, today was Moral Dilemma Day in the Palace.......
Why, I hear you ask.....
When I was visiting Aginoth in hospital they had an Easter Raffle running. I paid a quid and got tickets, just to put money in the pot - I mean, I never win these things, right??
Not only did I win, but I won the main prize, a basket full to bursting with chocolates, eggs and all kinds of Easter yummies.
I was thrilled......then I was concerned.......then I was guilty.
Thrilled - like I said, I never win raffles.....oh apart from that one time I won an adjustable screwdriver..less said about that the better!
Concerned - I have an eating disorder (they came free with my depression - I'm on my second now!) and bingeing is second nature to me. What would I do with a whole basket of chocolate.......?
Guilty - oh dear, I have always thought I should be Jewish (no offence!). I am extremely good at the guilt thing. Why should I have all that chocolate when there are kiddies out there who would die to get it?
So I rang the hospital back and said 'Can you arrange to get my prize up the road to the Children's Hospital?'
As I type this, there is a huge basket of chocolate and goodies in Ward 33 (long stay children's ward) and lots of very poorly children who don't yet know the Easter Bunny will be visiting this year.
I did right, I know I did.
Of course, now I feel guilty that I told you........oh dear.....
