It has been a while since I added a new post. I guess you all think I have deserted you. But no, here I am again. You see have been away for a week's break.
We had a lovely break at Nidd Hall. It's a really nice hotel near Harrogate and we have been going there for a few years now. I bet you all thought I was going to tell you we had been off to some distant sun-drenched shores, relaxing on golden sands, sipping long cool drinks from tall glasses.
Well, no, not quite. Though we weren't on golden sands, I was drinking long cool drinks from tall glasses under the hot sun. Yes, that's right! It was very hot in Harrogate while we were there. In fact it was so hot, I had to keep going indoors to cool off. I had planned on brisk walks to help keep off the weight after eating all the delicious food, but that wasn't to be. It was just too hot to stride out anywhere. Nevertheless, we had a great week, simply lazing around and doing absolutely nothing!!
On a more practical front, since we have been home, my husband has bought a brand new scooter. It's Quingo's latest model that does almost everything you could ever want it to. No singing or dancing, but it does climb up into the car by itself. (Okay, you press a button to set it off up the ramp, but who minds pressing a button now and again) Anyway, my husband is delighted with it and it does mean he can get out and about now. He has an electric wheelchair, but since we now have a smaller car (due to me now being the driver) it is impossible to get it into the car. If anyone out there is looking to buy an electric wheelchair do get in touch.
We also had a visit from a Cardiologist Specialist Nurse. She came to give my husband the full low down on his recent heart failure. Very thorough she was, too. Told us a few things we didn't know.
Kelso town centre is still in an uproar. It strikes me that they are taking up and relaying parts of the pavements they have already done. Did they make a mistake? Or could it be that they lost one of the workmen the first time around and are now having to retrace their steps to find him? You never know! Could be!
I am hoping to get to visit our lovely nephew, Christopher very soon. He is growing so fast, I doubt I will recognise him when I see him. He certainly won't recognise me or Phil. It has been quite a while since he saw either of us.
I can't remember whether I added a photo taken of him on his first birthday last June, so I have added it here. Doesn't he look a gorgeous little man?
Well I think that is all for the moment.
Have a great time wherever you are!
