Health seems to be improving….still antibiotic-ing, but… can now breathe, move and more importantly get to nearby pub for lunch and a glass of wine so all’s well with the world today. I am sure that the small print with the antibiotics specified wine as the perfect accompaniment to the course of treatment but there again my vision isn’t what it once was! I am now cossetted at home with the outside light fading (at only 4:30), heating cranking up and cats curled up in their regular cat-nap positions. It seems an island of calm amid our neighbourhood bereavement and past days of ill health.
Tonight I will attend a “catering corps” meeting to prepare for Tim’s funeral on Monday but for now I am drawing strength and joy from the brief pause of being home bound and feeling more “normal” on this late autumn afternoon knowing what a lifeline my support network of friends/family/followers brings to me and helps me keep going.
