August 2022 Blog

August 3rd 2022

Another month gone. I blinked in January, and here we are in August. I guess, so much has happened in the first months of the year, in a medical sense for me, that the year is flying past. 

August is full of plans for the Beckham/Hattersley household. Two concerts, a short break, Dads car being fixed, my tax getting done, two showers being re-grouted, medical scans for me, possible consultant appointment for me,  and re-application for my UK and Australian passports. Other than that, nothing planned!!! 

The trip is a short one and we are heading off to Hervey Bay. My plan is that we are going to go whale watching. Last years trip was great but not as calm as it apparently usually is so we are going again. To be honest, just being away is sometimes all you need. A change of scenery and somewhere different to look at. 

Yesterday I took myself out for a walk. I went to the Buderim – Palmwoods Heritage Tramway.  It’s a pleasant walk, very easy to do, with only one slight incline. You are surrounded by trees, birdsong, and the occasional remnant of a sleeper & cobbles. It was incredibly peaceful, considering how close the Tramway is to current roads and houses. I would imagine in the Summer, it would be teeming with wildlife. I will be back!
