Funny old things birthdays - there you are trying not to count them when you get as old as me, until the time when you think you'll never see another one! So today is truly another milestone - and I made it! And it has been rather a nice day - even the weather was kind for most of it. It started with our usual visit for the 10:30 @Great Malvern Priory where we heard some thought provoking words amongst which were 'stand up and be counted' - which I fully intend to do! Then it was off to the Kettle Sings (on the west side of the hills) for a good Sunday lunch. And indeed, it was good - highly recommended to those of you who have yet to try lunch there.
Yesterday it was the usual shopping morning when we saw any number of friends and acquaintances with which we passed several minutes in conversation and a cup of coffee reading Nature and The New Scientist at the library. In the afternoon I enjoyed a cream tea at one of the neighbours in convivial company watching Wimbledon!
Although Friday was extremely wet, we ventured to St Richard's on the outskirts of Worcester for this month's Hammer Out Brain Tumour Support group meeting. This was very good as usual and we learnt a lot - from the Macmillan financial rep, and also from other group members. How useful it is always to hear of others' experiences - it helps to put it all into perspective.
Thursday was good weather - remember it? It was dentist time for Jane in the morning (ouch!) but after lunch we went for a walk up to the top of Worcestershire Beacon and there was a fantastic view from up there - so glad we went. We finished off the day by taking tea and cake at the Kettle Sings (see above)!
I have shown this blog to the Hammer Out support group who were interested as it provides information about the whole condition which may be useful to others - it makes it doubly worth doing.
Also more important information to follow on from the last one is coming soon.
