    Dear Sadie

    As a fellow IOW inhabitant..moved over just over a year ago I can appreciate some of the frustrations you are having to deal with!

    Although living on the island is great there are one or two downsides and having to go to the big island for specialist health care is one of them.

    Hope you find a solution soon.

    Best wishes from Richard at Ryde.

      Dear Sadie

      The brief story for public consumption can be seen in my profile. For the fuller story perhaps that is best over a mug of coffee sometime.

      I'm going to be confined to home for a couple of months following total ankle revision/reconstruction surgery in ten days time so do message me and we can arrange something.

      I've got to admit it I'm rather dreading this round of surgery as it feels a bit like watching a train crash!

      Cheers Richard
