Both of us have been well this year, particularly Pauline with no relapse of her ulcerative colitis. We’ve had our Covid jabs and booster.
The year started off with optimism, looking forward to previously postponed holidays to Japan in September, and Sicily in October.
In June I damaged my Achilles tendon and have suffered ever since with foot problems in both feet. Under a podiatrist for a month now, but no improvement….yet. Pauline now walks faster than me!
Many trips away organised and taken this year, a pub just outside Canterbury in May, a hotel on Ipswich Marina in June, Jersey for a week at the end of June, Wroxham on the Norfolk Broads at the end of July, Salisbury in early September. Dartmouth at the end of September, staying in an apartment on the harbour, it turned out to a good choice in exchange for the Japan trip that had now been cancelled. It was packed out everywhere in Devon
Still Sicily to look forward to though.
Unfortunately, after going through all the rigmarole of testing etc; for foreign travel, I literally cocked it up at the departure gate!
Maybe I’ll tell you the story one day!
A consolation three night stay in Chester last month proved very good; we recommend the Pied Bull in the town centre for a B&B.
This year we have goose and loads of booze
