Our day out at Whitley Bay was good. It wasn’t quite what I was expecting and the afternoon session was better than the morning. There was a soprano singer there called Ruth Betteridge who has an incredible voice. My mum would have loved listening to her. Three songs stick in my mind; My God from Sister Act, a love song from The Marriage of Figaro and As Long As He Needs Me from Oliver. My mum enjoyed watching musicals and she loved opera. I remember watching Oliver with her and As Long As He Needs Me being one of her favourites from the film. It was one of those moments I wish my mum could have been there.
Rick had his MRI scan done on Wednesday and was told to contact our doctor in two weeks time. I was surprised that Rick didn’t freak out at having to lie in an enclosed for 20 minutes. He does suffer a bit with claustrophobia. Rick’s arms were achy afterwards as he had to keep them above his head.
Apart from that it has been a quiet week. Yesterday was a bad day for me. All I can put it down to is the amount of stress we have been under lately. It doesn’t help that I have bad back pain again and am suffering with discomfort with my right foot. The pain isn’t there all the time but I am suffering more often. I shall see how the next few days go although I am seriously thinking about making an appointment with the doctor.
