I can’t believe it’s Saturday already
This week has whizzed by leaving me behind.
On Tuesday I wrote a poem Renaissance Camp about the most beautiful beach in Britain, Sandwood Bay. I picked up next week’s Radio Times to find a trail for Nicholas Crane’s top 5 walks, one of which includes Sandwood Bay. The series starst Tuesday 29 July, at 7pm on BBC2.
The worst shock of the week has been the price of hearing: I’m told I need two hearing aids, which will cost 3800 euros, the price of a newish car. They are tiny. How can they cost that much? It has to be a racket – the Secu only reimburses 240. I manage, with the TV on loudish and using the subtitles for dramas with mumbling actors, and I only miss or misshear about 10% of what is said to me. It seems absurd to spend so much at my advanced age.
