I should be in bed long ago, but as I'm still up I'll do just one more post :)

After my health check up last Monday the dr was worried about my blood pressure so I arranged to see a nurse at my own dr (in Southampton even though I don't live there now and usually only stay there one night a week)
Well she took my blood pressure again and after a bit of humming and hawing decided to give me a little blood pressure monitor, instructions to take readings 3 or 4 times a day and an appointment to see the dr with my readings for a week on Friday.

The original reading which caused them to worry was 160 / 120. My latest one, about 4 hours ago, was 147 / 94 and I think that was a bit raised 'cos I'd just driven to Heathrow airport to meet my sister from a late flight. My "average" readings are something like 134 / 93 so I'm a lot better than I was. I'll keep you posted on how it is all going.

Tomorrow ... no today actually ... I'm off to Salisbury, well a village a bit outside it actually, for a Morris dancing workshop and since I have some of our sticks I must not be late. So I'm off to bed now. Take care and be well.

Peace
peter
