An absolutely foul day. It rained all day today, and the wind was powerful. It was difficult to believe that it was June, it was more like a cold day in March. Continue reading 6th June 2017
Today I have another hospital visit. The hospital is in King’s Lynn, so I took the opportunity to do some shopping on the way. P. wanted some fabric to make a cuddly toy for her granddaughter, and I had to visit the bank to pay in some money for the parish magazine.
Whilst I was there I bought a picture frame to frame one of my photographs. Perhaps I can sell it at the next exhibition at Norfolk Creative Arts.
When I got to the hospital, I was seen fairly soon, and my dermatologist had three medical students in her room, to see my ‘condition’. I was told that I was quite a rarity as the dermatologist had told me to go back home and continue to use my ointment, and was more than a little surprised when my biopsy proved positive. She is still a bit sceptical and thinks that I might have had the operation for nothing but she has requested another biopsy, this time on my ear where I have another lesion. Having been thoroughly examined by everyone, I went home via another shop that I failed to get to before the appointment.
Another lazy Sunday. I started the day ringing at Shouldham Church for their morning service. The time has changed, it used to be ringing at 9 o’clock for a 9.30 service, but since the changes in the church groupings, it is now 9.30 for 10. It’s a good job that we aren’t doing anything today as we often go out on Sundays in the summer, and that extra half and hour will make a difference. Continue reading 4th June 2017
P. was out all day today, so it was my task to do the shopping. She never left me with a shopping list so it was down to me to follow my nose. I hope that I got it right! Continue reading 3rd June 2017
Today, I had an interesting day. At Christmas I bought my son a present of a track day in three different sports cars. He contacte dme to say that he had organised it at Heyford Park near Oxford, today, and would I join him. Continue reading 2nd June 2017
Today we decided that we were tired after the visit from P’s son and granddaughter yesterday, so we got up late. Continue reading 1st June 2017
Today I spent the morning taking a photograph. I have had an idea for my final assignment, and I decided that as the weather was good it was a good time to try and take the photograph. Continue reading 31st May 2017
P. is still not well, but is feeling somewhat better. In the afternoon, she decided that she needed to go out and get some fresh air, so we went into King’s Lynn, both to get a little shopping, and to go and get something to eat. She has hardly eaten for three days, so is now very hungry, which is a good thing. Continue reading 30th May 2017
More steam trains today. P and I had intended to go to the North Norfolk Railway today, where they have a day dedicated to the comedy programme Dad’s Army. Much of the programme was shot in this area, and the scenes of the King’s train were shot at Weybourne station on this line. Unfortunately P. is still not well, so I ended up having to go on my own. Continue reading 29th May 2017
Another lazy Sunday. P. is not very well so she stayed in bed all day.
I spent much of my time reading. I have started Susan Sontag’s book On Photography. Some people have said that they find this a very difficult book, but I’m not finding it that hard. Perhaps that’s because I’ve previously read Barthe’s Camera Lucida and John Berger’s Another Way of Telling both of which I found much harder. Continue reading 28th May 2017
