... 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?"
