Today is a perfect day to come home. They’re putting up the Christmas decorations in the main street here in Sorrento and there’s a Christmas shop that opened yesterday. 

Silly people...

Sitting on the hotel terrace overlooking the Bay of Naples enjoying my last morning of peace reading my book and I’ve come to the conclusion that 14 days is a perfect holiday time. You get through everything you want at your pace and then in the last day or so start to recognise that, yep, time to go home and be content with it. 

10 days means your holiday ends with you still wanting more. 7 days rushes things. More than 14 days would be over-stretched.

Today, to London. An autistic boy in tow means that everything is already planned. Train from Battle, visit to the Hayward Gallery, lunch with friends, Science Museum and then home ...

Today I'm visiting Myrtle Farm, home of Thatchers Cider. Should be fun ?

I look forward to trying to understand your posts later.

There are a fair few on the train who are. Mrs Ginger away and no way could I take Little Ginger to such  crowd.

Dear Diary. I have a CT scan booked for tomorrow night, and an urgent thoracic clinic appointment booked for next week as my GP thinks I may have lung cancer. I have never smoked, but most of my family did/do, & I have spent a lot of time in pubs before the ban.

I'm not worried, I'm shi**ing myself.

If it's confirmed, I will fight it. I'm 56, that's too young, I want to see my 9 year old graduate. Smile for me, I'm not on the Obituary link yet ?

Good luck!  Also, remember that early diagnoses of even nasty things is a good thing, far better than leaving it until you're dragged in by ambulance!  A positive mindset is just as important as good clinical treatment.

Hope it turns out to be a false alarm. Good luck.
