We had to cancel our planned Italian holiday, so have been having days out and days away.
Last week we had three lovely days in Stratford Upon Avon.
Our hotel was just five minutes stroll to the town.
We stopped each morning on the little bridge to watch barges going through the locks on the way to have breakfast at Carlucci's,
an Italian café that over looked the river.
In the sun sitting outside, we could have been in Italy!
When we lived in Coventry we visited Stratford quite often and it still holds its charm for us.
Lots of visitors there all visiting Shakespeare's house.
It always looked pretty with the pelargoniums; the floral displays were beautiful throughout the town. We mooched around, stopped at a cafés, drank lots of coffee, ate lemon cheese cake and scoffed a bag of fudge, did some shopping and bought a winter jacket each. All in all we did what we liked and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The sun shone and it was warm, even though it poured with rain as we drove there, by the time we arrived the rain and black clouds had gone. I said probably because we had forgotten our sun glasses and I had bought a mac!!
It was nice to get away. and what I needed because I saw a specialist on the Wednesday before we went and the news on my arm was not good. My bone has not healed, and he said it might never heal.
The brace was taken off and a new one put on. I am to start ultra sound treatment on my arm, he advised multi-vitamins and calcium tabs. I really don't need them, as we eat a very healthy diet and I drink at least half pint of milk and eat two yogurts daily, but I have bought them and am taking them. Anything to get back to normal.
On Tuesday it will be September 1st, our first day of Autumn, I feel I have missed the whole of summer with this arm!
