On the First Day of Corrie Christmas

On the first day of Corrie Christmas, my true love gave to me...

... One Polish hip for Blanche Hunt

If there's one thing, I'll always remember about the wonderful Blanche Hunt, it's her quest for a Polish hip replacement which has since become a guiding inspiration for this blog.

As you may recall, Blanche (Deirdre's mother) bought a house in Coronation Street. The original idea was that Tracy (her granddaughter) could have a home to live in with baby Amy. However, things changed and Blanche eventually sold the house to pay for a hip-operation in Poland, after waiting a long time for one on the public health system waiting list.

As Blanche once remarked, "If Tracy can have a Moroccan kidney, why can't I have a Polish hip?"

Here's a link for more about Blanche http://coronationstreet.wikia.com/wiki/Blanche_Hunt
