This week has been a very hard week at work, relieved only by a hospital appointment on Tuesday morning when I went back to Worcester Royal Hospital to see General Bowel for a consultation, which was arranged almost a year ago. For me the biggest significance is that at the time it was made, I remember thinking something along the lines of, “Oh well that’s good he clearly thinks I will still be alive in a year then.” Well blimey how quickly that year has gone by!
The consultation was a formality in truth as I had just had a CT scan done, so the consultant arranged to be given a copy of the results when they come through and he arranged to see me in another six months. The only other thing of significance to the appointment was that it is the first one I have been to without Major Peanut since all this malarkey kicked off. Major Peanut woke feeling extremely dizzy and had to have a Doctor out to see her. She is much better now but had to have a few days off work as she felt lousy and I am sure all her fretting and worrying over me has been catching up with her of late. I hope therefore, that nothing comes along to stop us holidaying at the end of the month, as Lady P for one most definitely deserves it!
I said in my last blog how waiting for the results is a worry and it really is. It lingers hanging over every hope and plan. Still at least we have hopes and plans to get on with and certainly being so busy at work certainly reeks of a very normal life!
Talking of living a normal life and doing normal things, yesterday we had a fun day out visiting Goodrich Castle close to the banks of the River Wye, with our pals StarGirl and Dealmaker. The castle is owned by English Heritage, so it comes with a decent cafe and gift shop and a super little audio guide which is included in the entry fee. I really like the audio guide as without it, I could be in, round the castle and out again in about five minutes! However, with it I come away actually knowing a bit of the history of the castle. Anyway you can check out the web site here if you fancy a trip there yourself. If you click on the photos in this blog, you can see a little slideshow of some of our photos from the day. Sad to think that it has been a ruin since 1646!
Apart from Goodrich life is pretty quiet and ordinary here … er just how we like it. Take care and say hello soon!
