The Patient Is Delivered.......

We certainly had some strange weather driving through France, towards the south it was torrential rain.....

The centre of France was snow covered...... 

The northern part was freezing fog!!

We arrived earlier than expected so jumped on an earlier train under the channel. 

We stopped off at Elaines sisters house in Kent on Tuesday night because I was buggered.

We were on the road at first light this morning, we drove straight to Macclesfield hospital, they have admitted Elaine and are carrying out various tests, as always the NHS were fantastic and very reassuring.

I have taken the motorhome up to a campsite on a farm next to the canal at Sutton, I walked the dogs for a few miles into Macclesfield and picked up the little Citroen C3 from Elaine's brothers house.

I visited Elaine tonight at the hospital, they suspect some sort of infection and are now trying to sort out the where and why.

I am now sat in the van drinking a glass of red and feel totally f***ed!!  


  1. We are sorry to hear that Elaine is so unwell, but glad you made it back safely to the UK. Best wishes to you both. Jennie and Chris, nb Tentatrice

  2. Elaine is in the best place for her Paul, not that that will stop you worrying about her. You’re both in our thoughts and prayers. xx

  3. Glad you made it back safely and Elaine is getting the best of care. Now look after yourself, the carer often needs to take care !

  4. Thinking of you both and glad to hear you got back safely and that Elaine is being well looked after. Lots of love Esther and Dan xx

    1. Thanks Guys, enjoy that lovely part of Spain xx

  5. After such a mammoth drive you both must feel absolutely shattered. Here's hoping Elaine receives the best of care - and that you get chance to take care of yourself too. Our best wishes to you both,
    Sue /Boatwif / nb Cleddau

  6. Glad you got back ok. Thinking of you both xx
