Weekends holiday

I am off to see my daughter and family in Farnborough today, and will return next week hopefully feeling a little more relaxed after this weeks eye tests etc, which have taken it out of me a little.



This has been a bit of a stressful week all round, as we seemed to have more problems than we needed, but not all to do with us, but we somehow got dragged into it, and when it concerns family members there is not much you can do about it.



However it will be nice to see the grandchildren again, as I have not seen them for some time.

All being well when we return, we are taking them to the sea side as they do not live near to the seaside where they live and the children love playing on the sand and in the sea.



We are borrowing my brothers caravan for a week, and this looks out to Holy Island where Saint Cuthbert lived, and the Farne Islands,  somewhere I think is magical and so beautiful when the weather is nice.



Sometimes the seals come up to the shore and watching them is so relaxing, as well as all of the sea birds which we don't see in land.



So we will see how things go over the weekend, although the weather is supposed to be very hot which does not suit me, but when you are with family members it makes it a bit easier to cope with

Elderly and driving

After the news in the media during the last few days, I think it's time that elderly people had their eyes etc tested on a regular basis...
