The Way



Show me the way to go home.

Kirra loves when she get’s to this point, it means home is nearby.

Waiting at the table, is not something Kirra usually does.  However, an oversight on my part, meant she had to wait for her dinner a little later – hence her disapproving look.

Speed Camera Alert

I have decided to drive to and from my dialysis, which is around 100 miles.

I have relied upon patient transport, however, I feel I need to have some independence in my treatment and in driving, it will allow me some flexibilityhis t as well as a more relaxed pace.


* My Dad’s new car *

As the clocks have gone back, it will mean my driving will be in the dark, as my dialysis is late evenings.  I recently saw a speed camera alert detector for sale, and thought it a wise investment, whilst I don’t drive fast, one can still be caught out by even a little, hence this purchase.

It will be interesting to see how my driving to and from the hospital will be like, especially as winter is fast approaching.  My new Ford focus auto, is a great car and I look forward to how it copes with the terrain where I live.

Safe driving out there.

Summer was a joy of outdoors and new smells from up here in the dales.

Alas, the winter predictions for our location are not looking too good, with snow and extremely low temperatures predicted from middle of November right through into January.  I don't know how reliable this prediction.  I just know that it will be an interesting experience. 

I have to drive to and from the hospital x 3 nights a week in order to undergo Dialysis, and the road has to be treated with respect, even in normal conditions, therefore driving in snow and ice will be a slow experience and knowing my Kirra is waiting for her daddy to return, does mean being careful and considerate when on the roads.

Kirra and I, love Autumn, the colours enhance the day and a walk is always an enjoyable experience, for both of us.
