Thursday 27th August
So 6 MONTHS ago today, I was in a very different place. I know I’ve done well, the difference between me then and now are quite amazing when I think about it. But how well have I done, have I done enough? Should I be stronger than I am? Should my body still be aching and sore? Should I be back at work again? It does my head in not knowing the answers
None of my family remembered either. Naughty! But I guess their not going to as time moves on.
Anyway, back to our trip to Brighton, and I had a bacon sandwich for breakfast this morning. And still have an upset tummy 😦
We were going to Brighton Marina today as the weather was supposed to be dry. Really? It was still raining when we got there, but it did dry up later, and we even saw the sun for a while! ⛅️
There was a marina (obviously!), residential flats, a few little shops, lots of places to eat and drink, bowling, cinema, kids things etc. It was nice.
It was here that I read a text from Leah telling me I was on the NHS Organ Donation Campaign Facebook page. I got 3,531 likes and 170 comments. I would like to thank everyone for their good wishes 🙂 I hope this will help to get a few more people to sign the Organ Donor Register.
After that bit of exciting news me and Robyn got some food shopping, and then our little break was over, it was time for us to head for home. And that was another story …
We had a terrible journey back. The traffic was horrendous (and the rain too at times actually!!). We were stuck in queues for an hour and a half on the M25 coming up to Heathrow airport. We were watching the continuous planes taking off from there. Because we were there for so long and we were so close I was counting the gap in between planes for something to do! They were taking off every 30-45 seconds. It was quite amazing actually. The traffic eventually started to move but we saw a big warning sign overhead saying there was an accident. Robyn was refusing to drive any longer if we got stuck in that too! Luckily we turned off the motorway just in time. Only to get to Oxford, then be stuck in traffic there for half an hour. And this was at 8.30 in the evening!
A journey lasting four and three quarter hours and we were home 😩
Frazzled. But what a lovely ‘summer’ break we had 😂
PS Don’t forget to look at more photos of our boat trip which I have now loaded on my Photos page 😊
