Not one of my better days.  Firstly, my electric UpEasy cushion failed and will need to go back to the manufacturer’s for repair and heaven knows how long that take.  In the meantime we will have to cope with the manual one..  Thank heavens I bought two.  On top of that I found out, by […]

I arrived at the golf club today, having been driven by Kit, and need to find that ‘my lovely’ had forgotten to include my bag of tricks this for eating and drinking.  She discovered before I did and poor old thing went to enormous expense in sending them by taxi as she knew how much […]

Utter frustration, there is a 30 sec. delay between me dictating  and the text appearing on the screen. For this reason I shall await the return of my newer laptop, hopefully, on Monday, before making any further entries. In the meantime, I thoroughly recommend reading the account of the Swedish trip – 1Aug-14 Aug

Another milestone. I made it !! It Is my 76 birthday today.  The sun is shining and the weather is fine, unlike yesterday when I went to the geriatric golf day and spent much of the time sheltering, from the drizzle,.in Griggs’ buggy.  Today, however was to be entirely different – a sunshine day.  Both […]

I spent a very busy day catching up on all the things that had built-up whilst I had been away.  I also contacted AbilityNet who have arranged for the tea soaked laptop to be picked up tomorrow and repaired. The most exciting event today was booking my flights, and those of the good doctor, to Bangkok for […]
