Catching up with the non-news
The time goes so quickly that I don't realise that the month has gone by without a word from me. Anyway here I am now complete with diary as I can't remember last week never mind last month.
I went to Green Island Garden and it was well worth the visit, the garden is made up of lots of island beds, hence the name.
Sat 9th was Anita's wedding and that was a complete success, a lovely day, super food and everything you could think of to make a wonderful day. We stayed the night in the Weatherspoons in Leighton Buzzard which exceeded expectations, our room did have a step down into it but Ron managed it well.
The following Monday I went on a U3A walk. I try and do these once a month they are usually no more tha 5 miles and I can manage that easily. I see from the diary that Ron did a lot of walking that week. He goes out of our French doors, walks to the end of the path, turns right, along the road, down the front path and through the front door, through the dining room and back into the lounge, this walk takes him between 12 and 14 minutes, we time it on a stop watch. This gives I'm something to aim for. Some days he does this 3 times through the day.
On Sunday 17th we attended Charles Tabor's 70th birthday celebration along with many other friends. We had a lovely day and we're lucky enough to meet up wth an old friend, John Deed. Ron had a long chat with him and he kindly offered to come and look at our Mark Ten (I told you it would need more fettling).
Our Jaguar Drivers Club National was 6th and 7th August and this was held in Coombe Abbey a lovely hotel just outside Coventry. We had a good time meeting up with old friends and showing off our car on the Sunday. Unfortunately when we returned to our hotel room late Sunday afternoon Ron had a fall in the hotel room. Fortunately he did not hurt himself other than a bruise on his back but his confidence was completely shot, it took fifteen minutes for us to get him up after which he was exhausted and then we had to get ready and go for dinner as we had made arrangements to meet other people for dinner.
We had a week of resting following this experience but fortunately this week we are back to normal. We have decided that we are going to get some private Physio but have not yet arranged this - it is on the to do list.
John Deed has been to the house again to tune up the Cloud which is back from the painters. Looks like more needs to be done before Ron is happy so electronic ignition has been ordered.
Another Jaguar do this Sunday which is to be held at Hyde Hall - a RHS garden - which I will enjoy
Then nothing more for the next month - just a RREC picnic at Capel Manor on 4th September.
