Haha! Nothing is ever simple with me! I was told a month or so back that I needed my ears syringing but hadn’t gotten around to making an appointment with the doctors. Anyway, I finally got around to going along and getting them done, only to be told that I had an infection in them and was given some antibiotic spray for them!
It was my granddaughter Rubi’s birthday at the beginning of the month, so we had a barbecue for her, cooked by Vicky and Paul my daughter and son-in-law. It was a fun evening, and we all had fun.

I returned to the Isle of Wight at the beginning of the month, this time it was to catch-up with my mate Malcolm, the old boy that I met a few years ago on the ferry to St Malo. It was good to meet up with him once again and chat for a few hours and hear the stories that he had to tell of his travels!
Julie came with me on this trip, so we decided to make a bit of a weekend of it. After meeting Malcolm in Cowes, we then cycled up the Squirrel trail to Newport where we spent the night.
In the evening we went to the pub up the road from the hotel for some supper where we were also entertained by a trad jazz band, which surprisingly I liked and enjoyed.
After breakfast the following morning we continued to follow the Red Squirrel Trail to Sandown,
where we cycled along the seafront to Shanklin before turning back and then following the coastline round past Bembridge, St Helens, Seaview and then back to Ryde where we caught the Fastcat back to Portsmouth.
I’ve also been having some fun making video diaries from my last little jolly to France. Not too sure whether I’m going to do it again, as it is rather time-consuming, but we will see!
