I have not written on here because I'm not sure anyone would want to read a sailing blog where no sailing is done, no landfalls reached and there are no sunsets over the bay! However, lots of people have been asking me how Andy is so I'll do the latest medical report!
The Last Waltz of the SummerJane

Apparently our blessing counting was a little premature! Following Andy's recent health problems while we were in Palma, he continued to have back/flank pain and we found ourselves visiting yet another German doctor at another state of the art surgery. This doctor took more bloods and did another ultrasound and found what he thought was a stone in Andy's right kidney. Another specialist was brought in and we were sent off for a CT scan. This scan has unfortunately come back with what looks like a tumour in his right kidney and some pathological fractures of the lumbar vertebrae.
Things have been a bit quiet on the blog front recently as we have had a stream of visitors. Mallorca is the UK's Bali as it's one of the nearest places with guaranteed sunshine Tthere are many flights from all of the UK's regional airports so we arranged to see a few family and friends while we were here.

In the middle of all this hedonism, something has to crop up just to make you review your life and confirm that you are doing the right thing giving up your job and gadding about the world on a boat. We had a bit of that this week.
The Sand PoliceJane

I hate sand. I hate it on the boat. I hate it in the cockpit. I hate getting it on my feet and then going to bed and getting sand in the bed. It drives me mad. (I think I was the Princess with the Pea in a previous life). So, when we have visitors, I am a right pain in the a***! "Have you washed your feet off??" "Take those thongs off before you get on please!" "You will rinse your cozzie off wont you?"
