Garry’s monthly update for August 2020, where did that month go? August seems to have flown by, yet I’ve not done anything or been anywhere! Oh, yes, I remember where it’s gone, working, doctors and hospital!
Things on the health front haven’t been good! I’m back on steroids, had oedema and have now got shingles, and boy does it hurt! Considering what they are, or rather what they look like, a small rash, they’re so painful and uncomfortable! I can be sitting there okay, then all of a sudden it’s like somebody has stuck a knife in me! I think somebody has made a voodoo doll of me, sitting there stabbing it! And as for sleeping! I can’t lay on my back, and I can’t lay on my side! Let’s hope it eases soon!
Isle of Wight
I didn’t mention in last months update, but I’ve finally made it to the Isle of Wight this year! Unfortunately, it wasn’t a camping trip, but equally as good, a boys day out sailing. It was on the last day of the month, which was the main reason for not mentioning it last month. It was a great day out with suburb weather and favourable winds, we were under sail the entire time and hardly had to tack at all. Not that I would have noticed, I just sat back and drank beer!
Sad news on the ferry front, Brittany ferries, the ferry company I use to get to France have cancelled my favourite route, Portsmouth to Saint-Malo! Let’s hope it’s only a temporary measure, and they bring it back, for when I start travelling again. Speaking of travelling, I’m wondering if I should go away next month (September). Although the more I look at it, the more complicated it seems! Mind you if I’ve still got shingles, I definitely won’t be going anywhere!
