Patients lucky day

BUBBLE, bubble, toil and trouble, patients of Vision Eye Institute were seeing double.

Two wicked witches, a ghastly ghost, a wily wizard and a blood-sucking host; they all lured patients into their store to cast their spells with laughter galore.

It was Friday the thirteenth and five staff members of Vision Eye Institute Hervey Bay revelled in fun for the last work day of the week.

Dragging out their scariest outfits the group shocked patients walking through the Pialba office yesterday

“They really wondered what the hell was going on,” Judith Brazier laughed. “The patients had a ball.”

Ms Brazier explained the staff organised a theme day for every Friday to cheer up the workplace.

Last week it was all about Hawaii; yesterday it was all about Black Friday.

Earlier during the week Ms Brazier rifled through her fancy dress box and found a wizard’s hat her grandmother had made 50 years ago. She then discovered an abracadabra cloak and a magical wand her father had created.

She donned the hat for about 10 hours while her colleagues paraded their costumes alongside. Among them was Count Dracula, aka Cam Primavera, who scared patients with his bloody teeth.
