After a pain free weekend it was time for a dressing check for my hernia
wound at the hospital. Marjorie had to drive in the snow as I can't
drive until next week after having my clips removed. The nurse
removed my dressing and was very pleased at the healing of the wound and I
still don't have any pain, just a little tinge now and again. I am
still frustrated at not being able to drive but I can still do my Mayoral
St Luke's Church Lads and Girls Brigade Inspection Night
Our grand-daughters, Grace and Emily, like me belong to the Brigade and have their tea at our house on a Monday evening each week. This Monday they were really pleased to have a ride in the mayoral car with Marjorie and I to St Luke's Church, which is about a five minute ride from our house.
It was rather strange being welcomed by Joyce Bunn, the Brigade Leader as she is a personal friend. There was rather a small number of youngsters due to the snowy weather, but they put on a very good show, and even had some of the adults to join in with the games. We were expecting Derrick Jackson, a Brigade leader from Durham, to inspect our company, but he couldn't manage it because of the snow. It was therefore left to me to present the awards to the young people for their work during the year. It was also an extra pleasure to present my oldest grand-daughter, Grace, with her promotion to "Young Leader" for her sterling work throughout the year.
Kevin, the Mayor's Attendant, had a nice surprise as we knew it was his birthday, so everyone sang "Happy Birthday" for him.
After some welcome refreshments it was time to face the snow for our short journey home.
