Happy birthday greeting to my mother and have a great family day in Girvan.
I had a strange night sleep. As normal I have wonderful sleep and feel that I am having 10 hours sleep My initial awakening always disappoints when I see it is 4am or even worse. I rose and read listened to Madame Butterfly on my iPod, paced around and then at 8am took a coffee to Eleanor. I had already taken the chemo and steroids pills, all dosed up and I decided to get back into bed and felt my eyes shutting. Eleanor got up and I decided to go with my tiredness, hey presto, 10.30 and I am waking up. This can be excused as it is Sunday!
We have been more restricted in what to do as the rain was intermittent and this rules out the tricycle trips and decided to drive in the 6 miles to Chester. The Blue Pass is wonderful and it allows you get access where otherwise like you healthy people, no worry about parking. One advantage of being ill. We took the Bulldog, Wee Joe and give him a decent leisurely walk. We parked and as walking to the River Dee, there was a triathlon and the atmosphere was amazing and I had such faith on the younger generation who are dedicated to challenge and ultimate health.
We always say, if we were coming to Chester for a holiday then we would be impressed and we are so lucky we have it on our doorstep. The photo with Eleanor iron suspended bridge remembered me when I came to run an advertising agency and the press took my photo on that bridge over 30 years ago.
We mingled with the crowds and then walked through the city and you never git tired of the atmosphere. On the way back we went to a nice cake in the Chester Park and this is run by volunteers who have suffered an addiction and we like to support. They have a lovely building and a great opportunity for people to be engaged and help to change their lives. The charity has been named to Nightingale Social and the food is also excellent.
We went to visit our son and daughter and this is easy as the are 1 minute from each other. I dropped in the banana cake and the buns and no doubt I will hear if anyone has broken their tooth. Back to home to listen to the rain watch TV and then just chill ready to start the last week of treatment and then a champagne, a small one for me, on Friday the 17th June.
Thank you for following.
