After years of pain I am going into hospital for a knee replacement, on Sept 3rd,2012. By June I shall be a new woman. Able to walk the cobbled streets of Bruges, eat what I like on and off board and then use the shipboard facilities to lose the weight. I might have a bit of a knees -up [ha ha] on the dance floor. After sampling the wonders of Cunard on the Queen Elizabeth I might persuade my husband tof 46 years to buy a longer cruise. After all it will be like taking a new woman away! Happy sailing.
