Hello old friends and new ones I haven't met yet.
Computer had a rough crossing lasting almost 4 weeks then 2 on dockside in soaring temps. and diagnosis was sea sickness. So...off she went with dashing Dennis the French expert for treatment. Had to wait on internet connection so now here we are.
Everything we want her by the bucket full. Sun sun and more sun. Hot at times. Very hot others but never below 25c even at night.
Chasing all over the island with paper work for Doctors, residencia, bank accounts you name it. Queues for hours to meet little man wit clunkety clunk rubber stamp and on to next department.
Manyana say once rubber stamp is used we are in the system. Just manyana is any time it wants to be! Chuck your clock away. Not needed.
David has been upsy downsy with stress and pain but warm helps him hugely. He has made the decision not to drive any more. He decided really before leaving Scotland but said nowt. He was losing concentration and his confidence with it. It is hard for him but my love of buses (ha ha ha) has proved useful. You get a time when they leave the depot and take a guess when they may arrive at your chosen stop.
The horrible pains I have had for many years in my SIJ have gone. Yes gone. No idea why as the cause is still there but nothing. Hip still sore and knees now join in from stairs to get up here. 2 beds downstairs means he doesn't have to struggle up here.
No problems getting any drugs. Register with GP. She copies out UK script and you bowl along to Pharmacy whenever you need tablets. Tehy monitor how many you ask for but seems almost too simple. Yes of course this had to be accompanied by pages of documents. David gets his Oxycontins OK. There is even a pain clinic and consultant in the north so should be worth investigating for David's nerve bloc.
I have many many posts I want to listen to and find out how everyone has been.
Missed you and good to be back on line
