    Right now I feel very stressed. It has just come on. I realise I can only do so much in a day - unlike before. So I am going to do this blog early and sit with my feet up and just relax.

    I had to get up very early this morning to head off to Nottingham in order to miss the traffic. I headed for the house that is selling and sorted out the documents I need for the conveyancing solicitor.

    I then went to the hospital. A complete waste of time but fortunately I knew ...

    I rang the City Hospital regarding the rash on the legs and got through straight away. The specialist nurse made me an appointment to see a registrar and I will go on Wednesday at 9.30am.
