Happy Birthday, Sam lad! Hope you had a good one!

Well, it's been a while since I've posted, I'm sorry for disappearing on all of you. It wasn't intentional, but I'm sure you all know how these things go; you keep meaning to post, and then something comes up, and then suddenly a few weeks have passed.

So, how are you all? Jou, must be exam time for you now - how's that going? Revision going well?

Lorne, Ianto, congratulations to the both of you. I'm sure you'll make smashing parents, really.

Em, who else...

Colonel Sheppard, good to see you're feeling better. I'm sure Keller's taking very good care of all of you out there. And please, pass on my congratulations to Teyla. I'm not sure if I can send anything from here...I'll give it a go; let me know if you get a parcel for her at any point, will you?

Not much news this end, I'm afraid; I've given in, rented a wee flat near the practice. I haven't seen Evan in a month or two now; he won't answer the phone, just in case it's me. His mum's staying with him now, she's looking after him, but she's given up even trying to get him to see me.

I could understand if I'd done something, but that's just it. I haven't. Not that I can tell, anyway. And near as I can find out from Maureen, Evan says the same. It's not me, it's him. I suppose it should hurt less, knowing that, but there's only so much a man can take. I think I have to call it a day, now. Start making plans. I don't know if I'll even stay here. I was happy to move, but both Evan and I knew this move was for him, not me. I don't need to be near Maureen, and well, Evan's made it quite clear he doesn't want me near him. Maybe I'll go back to Scotland for a while. Maybe even Edinburgh, again.

Thanks, Carson. I uh...you're not gonna put your name on it, right? I never really explained...well, this place at all.

I'm sorry about you and Evan. Maybe a clean start'd help.

Och, no, don't worry. Say it's from you, if you'd like. An old friend who had some spare baby things...I'm sure you'll think of something, Colonel.

Aye, maybe. It's probably for the best, I suppose.

Thanks, Beckett. So far I don't think we've scarred him irreparably.

Hey...uh...if you're looking to move closer to Edinburgh...well, we're kinda short a doctor here at the moment.

Oh, kids are made of sterner stuff than you'd think, Lorne. I'm sure he'll bounce back from just about anything. And you've plenty experience with the rest of the Lorne clan, anyway.

...oh? How's that?

Yeah, but I can always hand them back to Emma when I get tired.

Well, Owen's left, and we haven't replaced him yet. I can't say for sure that Jack would go for it, but I can definitely ask him if you'd be interested. You'd get my recommendation for sure, and probably Ianto's too.

Aye, that's true. How's your leg doing, lad? You excercising it enough?

Why not? Tell him I'm interested, anyway. I'd need a bit of notice if he wants me to come over for an interview, mind.
rockscientist From: rockscientist Date: May 3rd, 2009 11:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
It's fine. Still in the cast, so not much exercising at the moment.

I'll let him know. I don't think giving you notice will be an issue. He doesn't seem like he's in too much of a hurry to get the position filled.

*grins* Yeah, it's about that time. I'm doing pretty good studying wise though, I think. I was worried that the deal with my appendix would really throw me off, but thanks ta Seto's help, I didn't fall too far behind at all.

I'm sorry ta hear Evan's still being stubborn with you. I wish I could do something ta help. You're a great guy, and you deserve ta be happy, Doc. *grins* If you do come ta Edinburgh, I'd love ta see you. And if you wanna stay for a bit, the flat's gonna be empty over the summer. Natsuko and I are going back ta Frankfurt, and then Seto and I are gonna do some traveling, too. It's fully furnished, close to the park... you're welcome to it, if you're interested.

Oh gosh, I'd almost forgotten, I'm sorry. How's the scar healing? I hope you're taking it easy.

Thank you, Jou. I'll let you know - looks like I might end up in Cardiff, if things work out.
jk_not_a_mutt From: jk_not_a_mutt Date: May 4th, 2009 09:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
I am, Doc. Not doing anything I'm not cleared ta do, anyway. And everything's healing up nicely. I couldn't be happier, 'specially with what I went through.

Do that. *grins* And if you end up in Cardiff before I'm done school, don't be surprised if I pop over for a visit. ~_^
