Success at last

Albert saw the consultant ophthalmologist today

He was pleased and said for Albert to get his eyes tested for new glasses, the op is successful

He then decided rather than wait he would do the test The DVLA required today

Albert passed with flying colours , there you go he said send that to the DVLA along with my name and your hospital number and request your license be reinstated

When they did the field test Albert asked them why they thought that specksavers had done the test 6TIMES CONCURRENTLY, and by the end his brain and eyes were very strained not surprisingly

They couldnít understand why

But then again the last time they refused was on the basis that he had melonoma which may possibly travel to his brain ? and it took the oncologist to challenge their decision for him to get his licence , almost twelve months later of them prevaricating

He could still drive the MH but we couldnít leave the country

So fingers crossed we may be back on the road with the MH soon

Just looking forward to taking a trip out to Heaton Park

We need the van to transport the tricycle to an area I can practise

Iím just hoping it wonít take months to get the license back but Iím not holding my breath

Meanwhile at least we are not paying insurance for a very stationary van and I recon we will sorn it when itís time to re tax it

But more importantly Alberts eye has improved following his glaucoma / cataract op, good news that the deterioration has been halted at least for now

The problem is where Barry?

We wonít take the hound abroad again, he not going to have his rabid booster , we expected to loose him before Christmas but he has decided differently

Campsites seem to be booked up, Scotland out of the equation for now

Still Iím not expecting the DVLA to make a quick turn around

And we prefer to travel outside of school holidays

We are not child friendly

Actually the older we get the less friendly I am

I had a little plan, once, that I would visit every county in England (to start with). I have just checked a map and I think I have only a couple to tick off the list before moving to Wales, then Scotland, then Ireland. But then I was going to stay on every CL in Norfolk until we found one we really liked and kept going back

Iíd like to travel around the coast of Gt Britain

But I worry about getting parked close enough given our mobility problems and the size of the van , itís no fun being parked too far away to reach anywhere where only the campsite is in reach

Of course this is the first time we have had a mobility badge which may make a difference

I would love to tour Northern Ireland

Maybe we will yet

Why is Scotland out of the equation? Scottish Islands perhaps? Mull? Harris? etc. Some CL or CS Sites perhaps?

We intend to leave Flamborough just before the School hols and head up to Arran. Normally you can lose yourself in the Islands even in the summer school holidays but not sure what it will be like this year. September the Lake District. I cant believe everywhere will be full. I could be wrong of course!

I thought Scotland was refusing tourists

Is that just from northern England ?

Sturgeon is not welcoming us

But this is the United Kingdom , should there be divisions ?

Oh i dunno! I did hear something about people from Manchester not being supposed to leave a while back but to be honest Ive not kept up. I found this but it seems to be a ban on Scots traveling to certain parts of England.
