...........and is immediately laid low by tonsilitis. Where did I get that from I ask myself? Thak goodness it did not make its prescence felt until I was home. Not sure I could have done the six hour drive feeling the way I did yesterday.
So this will be a brief post. I went to a NHS drop in centre this morning (first appointment with my doctor, or any doctor, was not until Friday), saw a lovely lady who diagnosed problem just by looking at me as apparently she could see swollen glands. So anti biotics and down to a local supermarket which has a pharmacy to get prescription. Suddenly felt wobbly and went to sit down in the cafe and a lovely member of staff came up to see if I was OK and fetched me a glass of water and made me stay there until I felt better. People are so kind.
Anyway, a wonderful time was had by all. I do not put pics of Florence and Beatrice on the blog - if you are a Facebook friend you can see some there, but here are some pics of Padstow and a wonderful river trip. Will be posting more over the next few days as I feel better.
Good to be back and I had a lovely break even if the homecoming was not quite what I expected!
As you can see, we had glorious weather too. I have been to so many beautiful places in the world but there is nothing, simply nothing, that beats the English countryside or sea in the summer when the sun is shining.
Am not going to Australia next year, taking a break. Kathryn is coming home in a few weeks to see us all which is wonderful and next year I will be staying in the UK. If there is anybody out there who lives near the sea or in a lovely location and would like a housesitter then please let me know! I am good with cats...
