No Direction

No Direction is our 70ft Narrowboat which is now home to my wife Jayne and myself, it was launched on 4th February 2008.

Scurvy Onboard ??

Monday 12th March 2012.

Well Scurvy was a common disease on boats a couple hundred years ago !

But the rash on my back which appeared this morning was diagnosed as Shingles by the nice people at The Samual Johnson Hospital minor injuries unit in Lichfield.

Although Shingles can be quite painful the joy that I experienced when I found that my  perscriptions are free now that I have turned 60 has cancelled out the pain so far.
