To say we’re upset is an understatement. We’ve cancelled our Edinburgh city break!
We were coming off the back of a successful bimble in Cardiff. We were super stoked to be visiting Edinburgh.
We’d learned from the mistakes we made in Cardiff and made appropriate changes. We booked the train “with assistance“, secured an adapted hotel room, did copious amounts of research and created a workable itinerary. Everything was in place. The one thing we didn’t plan for was the Flu!
I’m not talking about your average dose of Flu, even we could probably work through that, but the knock you off your feet then kick you in the head type of Flu.
What makes matters worse is Bridget’s immune system is already low, and when she has a cold or the Flu, she can’t have her regular medication, which renders her incapable of doing anything!
I’m asthmatic and can’t breathe at the best of times, so Flu is an absolute killer. A strong dose of antibiotics and steroids couldn’t shift it, so the GP ordered chest x-rays. Did he want to check for COPD?
It turns out I haven’t got COPD, but a warning has been given all the same!
Another Lesson Learned
We’d booked saver rooms and saver train tickets although it seemed like a good idea at the time it means we can’t cancel or get our money back?
The thing we’re most gutted about is we were looking forward to visiting Edinburgh Christmas Market!
Ah well … it happens!
Edinburgh isn’t going anywhere, and I’m sure we’ll visit soon.
