Booked Myself A Holiday😀


Having promised myself I would go on a quiet holiday - just me, nobody else - when I left the Navy in '79. I never quite got round to doing it, something always happened which prevented or took me in a different direction in my life.

Now that I have this Ataxia, I decided before I lose all my control to do it.

A week long holiday in Kielder Reservoir holiday lodge😀 All on one level, fully fitted for the disabled, self catering😀

It's like taking my home with me.....

Restaurant is ten minutes from lodge & they do takeaways. Lodge is surrounded by fields/trees & all paths are flat no banks/hills for powerchair to climb😀

Brother will be taking me up and collecting after my week....

I'm so looking forward to it now that I have booked. Sitting on the porch listening to my music at night or just listening to the night sounds.....................bliss😉

Roll on June

Good luck. Ted

Enjoy your Holiday. All of us Ataxian's need something to look forward too, from time to time. This will be a well deserved retreat for you!☘️

It sounds good as a disabled person myself there are just so many places i can't go

And it is really annoying

Have a great holiday :)


WOW😜 Thanks for the nice comments everybody👏👏👏

Funny saying you could join me one year, the Lodge I'm booked in can sleep up to seven at a push.

I would have answered earlier but not been 100% myself. Feeling OK now🤗

Got a home visit from a Consultant of Old Age Psychiatry next Tuesday, follow up on my memory checks - I do have to write everything down to remind me of things to do🙄

Even making a cup of tea, I must stay in the kitchen or I'll forget what I was doing 😂😂😂

I have notes all over the place reminding to do this and do that etc....

If there is one thing I could change in my life, one thing I could go back and change in my life given the chance....🤔

Having had the chance to be at my Father's side as he passed away.... but I was in the Navy a long way from home.

But, hey-ho, life goes on &

It's a funny old world👍🤗

Right, time for a nice cup of tea☕️
