Boats and things

Just back from our weekend at Pittenweem- if you haven't been to any of the fishing villages in the East Neuk of Fife- get yourself there. I've always been a sucker for fishing boats and harbours and Pittenweem has working harbour so ideal for folks like me ( who even carries a VHF radio ). We were also rewarded with the sight of an old broad beamed wooden sail boat ( what kind?) which looked as if it was coming into Pittenweem but then decided to turn and head up to Anstruther ( unfortunately under power so the huge red sail came down). We of course had to follow it up the coast and watch it coming in ( a bit precariously given the swell) to Anstruther harbour. Quite a sight with the main mast broader than the men on the boat.

Great to get away but again I seem to be taking longer to recover from the either the effect of the steroids or of the accumulative effect of the lenalidomide( or both). Even on Sunday- six days since my last steroids- still pretty tired and a wee bit weak. But again if the lenalidomide is doing its job then I have no real complaints. But given the timing of our trip to France on the 26th May- getting a wee bit concerned about how I'll be when we are meant to be travelling. But we are going to France!!!
