I've just never understood te mentality of why someone would just not turn up to a Doctor's appointment without cancelling

Well, to contact my surgery by phone took 25 minutes, 32 your call can't be completed messages, then number 10 in the queue. If I was trying to cancel rather than in pain, I would have given up after the first 5 goes.

I think there are zero hour contracts and zero hour contracts.

put yourself on someone’s books Because you want a bit of extra if they offer you work at a price and duration you are happy to do; but no promises either way  then I don’t see a problem. If on the other hand you get get locked in to something without a promise of payment or benefit but with certain obligations then there is a big problem. 
 

I don’t think anyone has defined a “zero hours contract” clearly. I’d just say fair or not fair. ...but maybe I am just simple minded ?

Actually that's a very good point. Making an appt with my doctor (and I suspect most people's) is the same

Either book an advance appt online for 3 weeks time, or it's "ring at 8am and wait in the queue" 

I've never had to cancel one so I never thought of that, but yeah agreed

I thought the same but there was a good debate on Question time last night about zero contract hours.

It suits some people, some audience members spoke favourably, especially the flexibility element of them.

Forgetting to take the front door key with me, leaving it in the lock on the outside of the door all day and not returning to a empty house!

Was there a Facebook party going on?

Helping my younger one with her homework, there was a question about how long it takes a kettle to boil - 5 seconds, 5 minutes or 50 minutes. I put the kettle on to find the answer and in the 5 minutes it took to boil, we finished the homework. As we did so, the kettle klicked off. 'Now,' she said, 'I will make you a cup of tea.' Such a delight.

Seeing an old couple walking down the street hand in hand

Two young lovers lost in each other's eyes

An old man sprinkling feed on his lawn for finches on a frosty day

My renters telling me how happy they are in their new home
