Blocks of the day - Spider's Web and Hawiian Applique
We got up early - a rarity these days - and set off at around 8.30 a.m., arriving at the hospital at around 9.00 a.m. We thought there'd be lots of traffic on the motorways but we went straight through and so were early. Richard went in for the treatment at around 10.00 a.m., the time we should have been there, so we didn't gain anything.
We were planning on a trip up to Wallasey or West Kirby, but we stayed in Heswall, visiting the shops, and then having lunch at 107, a restaurant we've visited before. We then thought we'd have a cup of tea at Thornton Hough - surely there's a tea room in Thornton Hough - but no! So we went to find a lovely pub called the Wheatsheaf at Raby, which looks lovely and worth a visit again.
Back to the hospital for 3.45 p.m., as directed, but Richard had to wait until 5.15 before he went in for this second dose. We left the hospital at 5.30 or so, set off for home, only to hit a traffic jam on the M56! We were dawdling along in the outside lane, looked to our left and saw Prince Philip waving at us! And the Queen, and Prince Charles. What was going on? But it was just a mad group of scousers off to the airport for their holiday and wearing daft masks. Made us laugh, anyway!
We're both shattered but we have two days off now. Back again on Monday.
