Yay - Holiday Time, Again!

As of tomorrow morning I am off to London for almost a week.  I wasn't able to go last year, so am looking forward to the trip.  As ever, it will be museums, and more museums.  This year I have had a to pre-book a lot of the visits, so will have to be less spontaneous than previous years, but it has been fun planning the trip.

I won't be on-line on Thursday, nor on Sunday, but on both days I will be keeping my own 2 minutes silence ... I do hope that you all do the same at 11 am.   I shall especially remember my granddad, and a couple of great uncles who served in WWI, my other granddad who served in the '20's and my dad who served on the home front in WWII.  I also remember a couple of friends who served in WWII and this year is the 30th anniversary of their death.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Clinic went well today and we finished exactly on time today.  Nice patients with a range of reasons that they had seen their doctors, but all had assorted gnuine bladder problems.  Last week one of our patients seemed 100% OK, and neither of us in the clinic could work out why they had come ... or even why their doctor had referred them in the first place!

Oh well - that's life.

I had better get my packing sorted out now, as I have an earlyish start - earlier than I had planned as the time of my coach has changed earlier, and with so many local roadworks locally the bus to get me into the city centre will take longer.

So, I shall sign off now and return next Tuesday .... but at least I shall get the questions done before I go -

9. What has been the most difficult class you’ve ever taken?
Physiology when I was training to be an osteopath.  Ironically I now work with physiologists!

10. What’s something that’s much more difficult than a lot of people realize?
For me, riding a horse through the waves ... the movement of the horse, others around and the waves mean your vision is going in lots of different directions ... I always felt "sea-sick"

11. What are some things a house would need to have for you to purchase it?
For me, it's the "feel" as I walk in

12. Would you ever go out in public wearing pajamas?
No - although I do stay in a hostel when in London so tend to meet a lot of people wearing my pj's

13. Have you ever had a lemonade stand?

14. Do you think you look older or younger than your real age?
About correct, I think

15. Where have you lived throughout your life?
Essex, North Wales, Essex, Cornwall, Devon ... ie England & Wales

Well that's me done for a few days.  I may try to get on-line later to see what you have written, but may not get organised in time.

So, basically, I will say that I will see you all on the 16th  x
