My life unraveled

It was an unusual weekend in as much as the heatwave ended and rain reappeared  in the forecasts after a long absence .    Tensions mounted in the house

Teacher swop

For two separate weeks each year as part of the national school curriculum some teachers are "parachuted in" to neighbouring borough schools to broaden their experience,  and similarly the pupils. Earlier in this school year I was allocated toLondon Borough of Croydon schools horticultural section for the past two weeks,but due to my lengthy hospital stays over recent months communications seem to have ceased and I have been cast aside. I was ready to do my Croydon stint but received no instructions so decided to wait at home,but nothing materialised. 
I Need to contact Croydon parks today in the hope of sorting things out.
I also need to make dentist appointments  to replace some chunky lost fillings.

Another scorcher

Over the past few scorching hot days we have randomly sought out good holiday destinations and good retaurants "off the beaten track" in Norfolk with surprising results; Holt is a good base for visiting excellent unspoilt nearby coastal villages and restaurants,most of the latter specialising in local caught crabs and mussels at reasonable prices. However, you need a great deal of patience, as service seems to be low on their list of priorities.
Cromer is another hidden gem and boasts an enomous church, well worth a visit for coffee and cake, obviosily outside other church events.

End of "holiday"

I have unofficially deleted myself from Leicester hospital "care". It seems I had  been deleted to the"Liverpool pathway ", whereby some unfortunate old hospital patients were left to their own devices and several died of starvation and/ or dehydration.
It was a devious and illegal method of clearing bedspace in NHS hospitals, stopped by the government once it became aware.

Indian summer.,

And where better to experience it than in Leicestershire . Today is reputed to reach 34 degrees centigrade, hotter than most holiday destinations across the world.

World Cup report

The final game of this never-ending tournament happens tonight (barring the final) involving England v Columbia. Two contrasting styles should make for an interesting game,even though Arsenal will not be represented. I was quietly forgotten at home and never requested to return to hospital, which suited me. I think my "illness"has flummoxed the medical experts(?)

Up and down

My mood continues its roller coaster journey but overall my health seems ok although I have suffered a few falls making my knees resemble war zones. My next project is getting my bladder and prostrate sorted.
