I finally found the way to fully appreciate Suffolk – live in London first. I’ve never liked it so much here, and can really appreciate the quiet. What an old fart I am. Anyway, I’ve had my first vaccinations – polio and tetanus boosters – and recovered from mild palpitations at the price of the rest. Some of my jabs are over £100 each – I go back for them in January. Apart from that, I’ve had my first health check-up (6’2″, 16 Stone, blood pressure a bit high) in ages, and have my first opticians and dentists check-ups in years coming up.
It’s good at forcing you to do a bit of life laundry, this travelling lark. I’d recommend it to anyone, even if they weren’t going far.
