X - XRAYS you've had: it feels like a gazillion and the stack of them is several inches high but the ones I love the most are the regular chest xrays which show up my pacemaker and the helpful radiologist says "you've got a pacemaker in your right upper chest" - isn't it lovely of them to tell me this!
Z - The best place to visit: For you? New Zealand, of course! For me? I have a notebook full of my “must see +must do +must eat” in the UK and hope to do the grand tour when I retire in 9 years time. Yes – I’m counting down already.
And now you know my ABC won't you join this game with me. Leave me a message so I can visit your blog and get to know you too.
Well, that's it for tonight - I'm off to wash my dinner dishes and settle down for some serious stitching. Tonight I conquer the England section of HCS.
Good night all.
