Usually at this time of year I go on holiday. I like to go when everyone else comes back. It’s cheaper, less busy and cooler.

The pic was taken last September in the Ukraine. It shows me on a rather large trike on Yalta beach. The trip was the latest in a series of Clare-and-Emma adventures. We’ve done Hong Kong, Morocco and Romania in recent years.

This year I can’t go abroad, of course, as need to stay close to Nottingham City Hospital, so am enjoying other people’s holidays vicariously instead. Joy’s just got back from New Zealand, and Jules is off again today to Majorca.

The boat, however, provides the perfect staycation. Today we’ve been for a walk down to Beeston Marina to choose new moorings. Proves I must be feeling better.

    You could submit the idea of 'vicariuos holidaying' to the weekend Guardian – it could be the new staycation! And just let me know where you would like me to go next for you to enjoy in a semi detached fashion!

    Bx – Don't tell the boys the bike isn't mine and I can't drive it! Let's go to Japan for our next trip Emma – in the meantime we can send Joy there vicariously! X
