Today Tony’s partner Carly went into hospital for an operation to remove her thyroid gland, which has been playing her up in a most dangerous way for a long time. Carly, you are in our thoughts and prayers all the time.
STOP PRESS! WE SPOKE WITH TONY THIS EVENING AND HE REPORTS THAT ALL IS WELL WITH CARLY.
Tony also reported to us that Harrison was an extraordinarily good boy today. He walked with Tony to playschool with his bag on his back, holding Daddy’s hand all the way. He wasn’t bothered when he left to go in, he just gave Daddy a kiss and said ‘bye’. What a lovely boy he is (of course, we are not biassed in any way at all, are we?)
As for life on Wight Mistress: Barbara finished the neck chain for Reg while Steve did some wiring repairs for them. After settling up the bill, we left at 1110, and headed east on to the Marne. 3 locks and a tunnel and we were at Nogent sur Marne for the night, where we topped up with fuel and did some grocery shopping and settled down to dinner and ‘there’s something about Mary’.
