This page is to give you the latest news and to direct you to my blog postings. The menu at the top right of this page (and all my other pages) is the easy way to navigate the site.
My latest post is the final one of our trip round the world. YES!!! AT LAST! A sense of duty overcame inertia and now we have Our Life in Ruins – the second part of our stay in the Yucatan (with a side trip to Palenque in Chiapas). You can find it HERE.
I have changed the appearance of the blog and this allows me to show the photos at a much larger size, which is nice. But there is a price! For some reason, as yet unknown, often only the first couple of lines will appear –
if the full post does not appear, click on the blue post title or the date it was posted (just under the posts title) and it will expand magically and mysteriously.
I hope to find some setting which will allow the post to appear in its full magnificence without intervention on your part.
What we are doing now
We are back in the UK! And now back in Bristol.
We have been busy. In two weeks we managed to get a used car, rent a flat and make an offer on another flat on the Downs! The offer was accepted, the purchase was completed just before Christmas and we moved in in March.
However shortly after moving into our rented flat I started to get some back pain. Despite efforts of a physiotherapist and lots of painkillers it continued to get worse. Our GP took blood tests which suggested that it was not a simple bad back, so I was sent into hospital for further tests. First stop was the BRI for a scan then Frenchay for treatment.
