Friday 13thto Monday 16th October
For the first time in a while I wasn’t feeling well 🤒 I was feeling sick at times, a bit of a funny dizzy head, aching body, that kind of stuff.
I still went to work Friday. I went out at the weekend, wandered around Oxford on the Saturday. Felt a little better on the Sunday, went to the garden centre and fish shop in Bicester, went out for a meal which was 😋, thenwent to another local pub where there turned out to be a music quiz going on which actually was a bit of fun 🎵🎶

This weird atmosphere must have done something to me because I actually ordered my new phone! something I have been putting off for SO long.
Then I went for a nice sunny autumn evening walk with Robyn.
‘A consultant liver transplant surgeon explains the procedure‘ – click on the blue link to have a read of this article I recently came across (it just happens to be one of the surgeons that actually did my second transplant!)

The whole procedure sounds pretty complicated doesn’t it? I’m glad that there are some very clever people about! Quite amazing really …
