That doesn't mean Bob has got the hump. Although he’d be perfectly entitled to. Despite his excellent care, and constant reminders to “Stop doing that, Ang, go back to the sofa. Now!” I think I tried to do too much on Saturday [pottering round kitchen on my crutches, attempting complicated knitting, banging away on the laptop, stumbling up and downstairs…] and on Sunday was utterly knocked out and in a fair bit of pain. So no church – just lying down, taking painkillers and ..sleeping mostly…
I watched “Captain Newman MD” [you would not believe how much stuff I have recorded to watch at some unspecified future date] This was because a; I hadn’t seen it, b; It stars Gregory Peck, Tony Curtis and Angie Dickinson c; the blurb said
“contains violent acts, strong language, distressing scenes and SURGERY”
It wasn’t worth the effort of watching. And as far as I could tell, the only surgery was the odd injection!
I also read one of my library books – Val McDermid’s “Beneath The Bleeding”. Only just started reading Val McD stuff [and I have yet to watch any of the ‘Wire in the Blood’ programmes on TV] This one begins with one of the main characters getting his kneecap smashed. It was a clever book, even if some parts of the plot were easy to decipher, even for my drug-sedated brain. But full marks to the author for her brilliant, excruciatingly accurate description of walking on crutches.
I insisted on reading aloud to Bob the paragraph where Tony gets out of bed and struggles to get to the loo and back. Either VMcD has had knee surgery herself or she has been forced to look after someone who has. Every agonising detail was correct!
They are the King’s bones! Do you think the newly confirmed Archbishop will come up to do the funeral in our Cathedral. We must wait and see on that one…

This morning’s post brought a lovely little package of these from Jane at Daisies. Not the usual sort of gift for a convalescent I admit – you will have to wait for further elucidation on that one.
But now I am going to get properly dressed – we are spending the afternoon with BIL & SIL. It will be lovely to get out of the house for a bit!
