The Travellers rest has really come on this week.
I've also got a parcel coming tomorrow... a guitar! I said that I was hankering after one, well I'd looked on ebay, there were quite a few bargains to be had, but I wasn't sure if I wanted second hand or new. Then I had to consider how much I wanted to spend, I had thought of one which was £70, a good guitar and boy was I tempted, but I resisted. On Tuesday I had a look in a couple of second hand shops, they only had either the really cheap stuff, or electric. Then I had a long think, did I really want to spend a lot of money, what if I got bored... so went back on line, now I was looking for something in the £40-£50 bracket, a beginners kit preferably. And finally I found one, checked up on the sellers, found some very good reviews for the guitars, they'd also uploaded some videos to YouTube, so I could hear the guitar, it had a nice sound. So after a cuppa and a little more deliberation, I checked to see how much I had saved, almost £30, the guitar package was £44, so I bought it. That was yesterday, and it will arrive tomorrow! Just the treat I'll need as I am also off to see the specialist about my back, which has been giving me hell all week. Tuesday was the worst, didn't think a very short wander between two second hand shops would be too much, but it was. So I've had to rest up a little, which gave me time to check and double check the location of the hospital. The appointment is at 5pm, so going to hit rush hour - groan. It is a straightforward route, just have to hope that it isn't too manic.
Well I have a diary entry to do, then a bit more ukulele practice.
