I’m loving this weather at the moment. Can only sit outside to enjoy it for half an hour at a time, and not strong enough to do it every day, and contrary to expectations I find that climatic conditions don’t alter my health condition in any way, but the sunshine and lovely birdsong does make me smile.

That’s it, folks. I’m still in the same way I was last time I posted. It’s a long old relapse, this. I’m mostly bedbound, mostly sleeping, mostly hurting too much to bear and so mostly drugged quite heavily.

My wife is reading a splendidly illustrated hardback copy of Mrs Beeton’s Every-Day Cookery, annotated throughout with pencilled menu notes.

On the first blank page inside the front cover, in a different hand of confident cursive blue ink, is this message:

To Bunny, in self defence, John. 1948

Making us smile. 🙂

    Glad you’re enjoying the weather.

    Sorry you’re still suffering the relapse.

    And laughing cynically at the book’s inscription because that was such a misogynistic stereotype for a long time — the newlywed wife who always burned her husband’s dinner.

    Weather here is also gorgeous!

    • Thanks, Erin. I’m glad you have lovely weather too and hope you’re well enough to enjoy it fully.

      We’ve been talking about that inscription, and wondering if it might be a brotherly tease rather than a husbandly stereotype. I’d prefer it to be that.

  2. Good to hear from you. Glad you’re able to get outside some!

    The weather is nice here as well, although it looks like we’re going to have a very hot summer.

    Hope you’re feeling better soon.


  3. I always read your blog posts and am awaiting the one that begins with you feeling much better. I keep you in my prayers and have every faith that it will come.
