The news is that Christine’s arm has improved significantly, thank goodness. She doesn’t have the full range of movement (yet, at least) but it is good enough for us to contemplate travelling again. The intention is take it easy at first, probably making “day trips” initially so that Stephen can carry the reduced amount of luggage.
As we have let the house from early December, we intend to make a start in the second half of November. As mentioned previously, we are avoiding the impending winter weather and heading for the southern hemisphere – New Zealand to be precise. This is where our daughter, Eleri, is currently living while on her own travels around the world so it will be great to see her “in the flesh” (as opposed to on FaceTime) for the first time since early April.
We’ll be updating the blog on a more regular basis from now on so keep coming back. (Assuming you are interested in seeing what we are up to, of course!)
