Hi folks. .
Yes, we are once again going on our travels.. I hate to admit this but we are going..... TO THE DARK SIDE :shock:
Lancaster

Haha

We are going tomorrow till Friday. Just another break.. taking mum and two good friends are joining us.. I know already that I will end up spending a fair bit of time alone at the hotel as I'm not doing great with the knees lately and cannot walk far at all. Even with the crutches.

Hopefully I will have good signal then so at least you lot can keep me company lol

    I'm not that sure they have electricity bubba lol

    I've been thinking just that lastly Karen.
    In fact I've just booked tickets to see derren brown next march and have opted for a wheelchair place as I know I won't be able to walk far enough to get to other seats. Plus I know that I will be on the end of an isle and won't be disturbed every two minutes.

    :D

    Have to agree with Barbara , wheelchairs are great for shows and concerts . We've recently been to see Status Quo and Jools Holland . You get a great view , no pushing and shoving and can enjoy the evening . Hope you enjoy your trip away , Tony .

    Thank you girls :xmas_cheesygrin:
    I will of course HAVE to wear my Leeds United t-shirt, it is apparently the law when entering the BLACK ABYSS OF THE WRONG SIDE OF THE PENNINES :shock: :? :lol:

    I am sure that if there is signal at the hotel then I shall log in.. most of pur recent trips have ended with me spending most of my time waiting in the hotel.. in too much pain to join the fun :(
    never mind though haha :lol:

    I hope you enjoy your trip away. Good idea hiring a wheelchair then you can choose to go out or stay in and rest.

    Have a good week, Tony. It's a long time since I was near Lancaster but it was good then.

    I am in Morecambe bay.. I'm that ard I've scared the tide out lol

    We got to the hotel in Lancaster around 15.00 yesterday. Had some food in the pub next door but I ended up going back to the room early. My neck was really bad. It's every time I drive now I get a hot shooting pain in the middle of the shoulders on my spine.. it's really awful.
    So I went to bed and stayed there till around 13.00 today. We all came across to Morecambe in Eric's car.. I've just come back to sit in it while they go have s nosey around. I managed to look around one antique shop and that was it. :cry:

    While they were out getting breakfast this morning Janet bought me two new knee straps. . Twenty quid each :shock: it's a disgrace..
    She also bought me a plug in heat pad.. it's about a foot n half square with different heat settings etc.. and washable.
    That was thirty quid.. I was very grateful but it was a lot to spend.
    Bless her...

    I'm gonna start a thread in lwa about this pain in the neck (no, not Eric. . Lol)

    Ooooh, that hot shooting pain sounds terrible. Hope it doesn't stop you from doing too much. Wow, those things were expensive but, as you say, it was lovely of Janet to get them for you. And you are still being your cheerful self. :xmas_cool:

    I am so sorry that I have only just seen this... :xmas_redface:
    thank you so much for the reply hun..
    I have been to the docs today and have increased the pain meds.. the heat pad is still being used and is wonderful :xmas_cheesygrin:

    As for me, I am afraid that my cheerful self is slightly hiding behind the curtains of pain lol.. I am trying very hard to get back to the way I was before but have been pretty down for a while now.. I will get there I am sure, especially with the help of all you wonderful people on here :wink:

    thanks rose

    You're welcome. That's why we are all on here, to help each other along. As for only just finding the post, don't worry about that. Sometimes there is a lot to get through. I often only get in to the cafe before I am too tired to check anything else. Hopefully, the pain meds will be a big help to you. x
