Autumn is here, so we are told. Yesterday 28th September we had a lovely summer day and fortunately I was able to find time to garden.
It is 6 weeks since I last wrote a report so here goes. The main thing that has happened as far as Ron is concerned is that we have started the private Physio . Today will be our fifth session including the assessment. We really think she is helping and seems to be very insightful as to Ron's problems. She thinks his main problem is with his balance so many of the exercises are to address this. We have been religiously doing all the exercises every day. We originally agreed to try 6 sessions and then re-assess the situation (at 80 per session it is not cheap). I think that more sessions would be helpful but we will wait and see and go by her advice, I trust her to give impartial advice.
We went to Hyde Hall and had a good time lots of cars to look at and friends to chat to. No time for me to enjoy the gardens but maybe we will fit in a visit another time.
Sept 3rd was the date of a barbecue at Graham and Erica's house - this was mainly for Graham's maternal relatives. It was a very nice day with around 40 people some I have met before and some that I have never seen before. The weather unfortunately did not play the game as it poured with rain during the afternoon but fortunately Graham had foreseen this and there were two large gazebos. The following day we went to Capel Manor with RREC, the weather stayed fine which was fortunate as we took a picnic.
The following weekend we planted the winter baskets (pansies).
Then the following weekend we went to Lancashire for a JEC. Mark 10 rally. We took the opportunity to visit our good friends John and Carolyn Smith who live in the area. Very kindly our friends Ted and Pat Kelly joined us for the afternoon.
We were lucky enough to win some prizes at the Mark Ten Rally, Best interior, best bodywork and best in show. All Ron's hard work in previous times is still giving results and I am so pleased for him. Our. Stay at the hotel was traumatic as on Sunday we were just ready to go down for dinner and when we got to the lift it was out of order, eventually thanks to our good friends John and Lindy Stevenson Ron was taken downstairs on an instrument of torture called an evac-chair. We were then given a room on the ground floor for our final night.
Last weekend we went to Warren Car Show on Sunday and had a good day although no other members of our car club were there.
That sums up our month. I am pleased to report that Ron is getting a lot of benefit from his Physio .
In two weeks we have a weekend away with our local JDC club we are going to Warwickshire and visiting Gaydon.
Our cars have been receiving tlc from John Deed, electronic ignition, new otter switches, new tyres hopefully they will all be better for it.
