No walking!

Got in to see 'The Practice Nurse'.  I doubt this means she is still practising?  This after an hour of dialling and getting the engaged tone.  Then told "All the Doctors appointments have been booked."

After many goes with her stethoscope she said "Ahhhhh.  Beginnings of a chest infection."  

My stats were ok, which presumably meant I had oxygen in my blood.  So - antibiotics. Again.  And of course another chest infection is another nail in the coffin, each one damages my lungs a bit more.

She said I hadnt to walk for a few days until the antibiotics kicked in.

Now there isnt much in my life that I can do, enjoy, feel good about and walking on the prom is one of them, the other is painting, and the other is a glass of red wine.

So I have done a deal with the DP.  He will accompany me tomorrow and I will amble, not walk the half mile and more.

More boring photos of Gulls tomorrow.  Bet you can't wait.  I am fine had an extra glass of red.

Sounds like a good solution, both the walk and the red!

I just love your pics of "the Gull Boys" so I'm never bored when I read your blog. Yes, have your walk, with a little assist, and may the antibiotics do their job quickly! We must always carry on. :) And, it goes without saying, enjoy that extra glass of lovely wine.

I like your plan of ambling, not walking, it sounds like it will work. I hope you heal quickly.

Keep up the extra glass of red and the ambling - hope you are soon recovered.

You ask about the ame Ula - it is a Scottish name and I think is probably a diminutive of Ursula.
