Free at last!!


Hello everyone – here’s a little bit of a catch up and an update!

Well free at last indeed!! Went back to the hospital last Tuesday, and as you may have noticed I’m not sporting the stunning contraption on my wrist that I have been for the previous couple of months! Woohoo!!

And to celebrate……. had a fab day out with my wonderful niece Louise in London yesterday – well not really to celebrate my wrist, just a great thing to do really!! We were absolute tourists!! Even though I’ve lived here for the past 34 years!!! Wow!! Yes I know…………. it sounds like I just stepped off at Euston station from the last train from Glasgow Central!!

It’s funny on the odd occasion that I venture north or talk to one of my old friends on the phone; they always say, much to amusement of everyone south of the border, that I have an English accent!!!!!!! Lol indeed!! It may have softened over the years, but it’s certainly not English!!

Anyway back to the plot, we had a lovely lunch at The Wolsley, which I think has one of loveliest dining rooms in London. We then went on an open top bus for some sightseeing, had tea at The Criterion, which is another stunning dining room, and then the lovely Louise toddled off back for the 6.30pm train to Nottingham. It was so fabulous!!

I think I may have been inspired by my recent trip with my mother in law to Paris with the old open top bus thing!! London is indeed a beautiful city but I got the wrong bus!! I was hoping that it would be the same system, and we would just ditch the headphones for the commentary and have a good old natter whilst taking in the sights.

Well the Pearly King of London had other ideas!! It was like being on a bus with Phil Mitchell from EastEnders in Dolby stereo surround sound!! Honestly, we couldn’t hear ourselves think let alone have a natter!! So in the end it was cut short. If I had got the right bus perhaps my waistline might not have suffered so much!!

We did indeed indulge in some delicious food yesterday (check out the desert photos), and all in perfect time for me to compound the damage with my final few days next week living the Italian dream. Well for this year anyway!!

Not checking in a suitcase this time you’ll be happy to know!! The other one did in fact turn up four days later, just a few minutes before the rest of the troops, saving me and the rest of resort from anymore visual fashion faux pas onslaughts for the remainder of the holiday!! Joy of joys!!

Catch up soon!
Take care,
Anne x

    So glad your wrist is better Anne those splints are awful I had to wear one back in 1997 for 10 months after having the plaster cast removed when I broke my scaphoid bone. The worst thing with them is you cant do everyday tasks properly and I ended up taking mine off everytime I needed the loo or when I needed to write as it was my right hand and I’m right handed. Its funny what you can’t do with your left hand
    Those deserts you had with your niece look amazing in glad you had a great day out its just a shame you met Phil Mitchell lol!!!
