It’s seven days since my last blog and I never expected and can’t believe how many nice and caring comments I have had on here, Twitter, emails, phone calls and Facebook. It has been amazing and heartwarming. I can only say a huge ‘thank you’ to all of you.
The only bad comments were on the online pages of the Sun newspaper. I feel quite proud that the Sun readers don’t like me….
S, how has it been? Well, I never realised how restricting using one and a half hands would be. Add that to not being allowed to drive (though I am sure I could) and you have one frustrated impatient conjurer sitting here.
During the week the administering angels (you call them nurses) changed the dressings, announced that it was all going very well and suggested some finger exercises. They then bound my fingers up again so tightly I couldn’t do the exercises.
Tomorrow I will see Mr Sammut, genius surgeon, again and he will decide whether there is any more work to be done. Fingers crossed (on my right hand) that the news will be good.
On a different tack, pun intended, Debbie drove me over to the boat show. I know that some government geezer decided it would be a good idea to develop the docklands area with the ‘Dome’, ‘Excel’, etc… but for most of the nation it’s damn difficult to get there.
We only live on the opposite side of London but it took over two hours to get there and over four hours to get back. Birmingham would have been quicker and a LOT more central for the majority of the country.
The biggest disappointment was how few boats were on show. In previous shows there have been boats at all prices. Not this time I’m afraid, so it’s back to searching online.
That’s about it really, apart from plotting and planning the coming tour. The sooner the better for me!
