Reporting Back ..........


We had a relaxed morning. After leaving the motel we parked along the sea front and watched a large group of oyster catchers, small seashore birds with long red beaks. Not sure why they gathered in this bay but they were thick on the narrow beach.


Wandered into Telecom to see check out their offers. We might upgrade one of our cell phones soon. Decided to have lunch early and Chequers has a sunny courtyard except the clouds came over just after we sat down.


Kept my appointment with the specialist at Thames Hospital. BP 110/60 That's very low for me. I got told off for not going to E.D. in the first place. This because I should have had a CT scan ages ago and seen a Neurologist and Eye Dr. all of which would have happened if I'd treated it as an emergency... but it wasn't. The symptoms have crept up on me, slowly getting worse until now I have a saggy baggy face on one side and a sore eye because it won't blink. I think she has referred me to all three. I'll know for sure when I contact my local Dr after she has heard from the specialists. I was glad to have that over. Oh, and she agreed I probably have Bells Palsy.


We spent a small fortune on groceries because I plan not to go shopping for 14 days. I need the rest to heal up this inflamed nerve. I don't think I have ever not gone out that many days in a row.


Stopped off to spend a few minutes with our daughter and were home about 6 pm to unpack the car in the rain. John cooked tea. I got caught up here and am ready for bed.

How did I do?


I did well, I even got in a short walk. 


Atkins Bars have recently turned up in our SuperMarkets. I tried one today. It was very good. Hard to believe it was low carb etc. I hate to think what chemical processes made it taste so good. I will buy the odd one. They make a useful snack and more palatable than any others I've tried. I did find it very sweet to eat. Fortunately the sweetness did not stay around in my mouth and the artificial stuff left no after-taste.
