I had to do Something whilst waiting around to nurse the Spinal Calamity, who by the way has a date for the belt and braces version of spinal fusion. She will be having a bone graft and scaffolding from L4 down to S1 on March 2nd – which means, all being well, I shall be free to travel again on May 25th.
I will not tolerate post-op infections, complications, mobilisation delays, whinging or complaining. She will have a text book recovery and I am unanimous in that declaration. I have places to go, people to visit and photographs to take …
Before the navy dress, starched pinny, petersham belt with Hospital buckle, white cuffs and frilly hat go back on (not forgetting the black shoes and stockings) I’m off for a quick Midlands Meander with BB the weekend after next whilst the Spinal Calamity is semi-mobile and vaguely capable of looking after herself – third time lucky hopefully, and this time I’ll not get an early recall.
All of which brings me back to the Something I’ve been doing as stir-crazy prevention therapy. A blogging friend, Roland Ladley, has written and published two books (excellent, fast paced spy-type thrillers I highly recommend, available on Amazon Kindle) and his third will be published soon. Not to be outdone – I now have three new books in print and the fourth in production … OK the plots are a bit thin and the narrative is crap but the pictures are great …

P.S. Love you K!
