Crunch Moment Coming Monday

Next Monday morning, I'm back at the Royal London Hospital for more tests and final confirmation whether I'll need a third operation on the serious shoulder injury I received in March. I've been really stressing about this all week and so this afternoon, I'm heading out of London for a weekend in Kent with Mum and Dad, to the stretch of shingle coastline on the edge of Romney Marsh between Hythe and Dungeness.

According to the BBC, the weather is supposed to be bright with sunshine and scattered showers (good for photography), but "feeling cool with a chilly north east breeze" (so I'm breaking out the fishtail parka). Amongst other things, I intend to drop by Prospect Cottage (above), once owned by the film director Derek Jarman, and come home on the 68-mile high speed rail link from Ashford, straight into Stratford International. The journey apparently takes only 30 minutes.

Let's hope all this activity takes my mind off the prospect of further surgery.

Hey, good luck for Monday. Hope it goes OK.

Photography is a great distraction, keeping your mind off things. Hope you post the results of your photography. :)
