Hi, everyone! Well, I'm safely here after such an easy journey, I could hardly believe it! The A12 was quite busy until after Colchester and then it eased off and the A14 was absolutely fine while the last bit back on the A12 was almost empty once past Woodbridge.
I'll take some photos of the cottage today to show you tomorrow but suffice it to say it is very pleasant, pretty old, comfortable (I had a great night's sleep) and it all feels great.
Yesterday started off with that trip to Specsavers to collect my new hearing aids and the associated technology. The young lady who was there was lovely. Very 'sweet' and understanding but very informative. She did the fine tuning, then went through how to use the TV bluetooth things (no more need for loops around my neck and cutting out the rest of the world) and finally she helped me get the relevant app on my phone so it how goes directly into my aids without any faffing around with changing settings, etc. She even gave me a trial run and I could hear her as clear as anything. There are various settings on the phone app but, for now, I am leaving well alone.
I came out and did my shopping (This Specsavers is in a big Sainsbury's) feeling like I was walking on air, I really did.
When I got home, of course I connected the TV gizmo and, yes, straight into my aids without blocking off external sounds. Fantastic.
The rest of the time was spent bustling around to finish packing, sorting out the kitchen stuff, etc, before leaving.
Once here, I unpacked, shopped and then strolled down to the sea front where I look a few photos. Here you are . . . a Southwold Saturday evening. Peaceful and pleasant.
Today, I am planning an easy, leisurely day. I'm lazing around in bed clothes and slippers, enjoying a cafetiere of coffee while I type this while the sun plays the Hokey Cokey (you know - in, out, in, out). I'm going to meander up and down the high street, although. being Sunday, the smaller shops might be closed, along the beach although that might be a longer walk to the harbour and back, maybe the other way to the pier, maybe lunch here, maybe on the beach, I'll decide that later.
Have a lovely Sunday, everyone. Do you have any particular plans or are you just letting the day unfold as it wills? xx
