The Orchid and I
What else? Fed Captain B (Jackie's lovely home baked ham is still providing us with salad teas); and I was asked for a poem by an American internet friend - she wants to publish "Bedtime Stories" (from "Old Playgrounds") on her blog. So I was pleased about that.
Jackie was round in the morning for coffee and a chat. And Audrey and I chatted on the phone. We hope to be out on the doors tomorrow. Audrey has some Not At Homes for us to follow up.
I have finished my climb of Everest, North Face, with Matt Dickinson and Al Hinkes. An exhausting business, I don't mind telling you. And I think they were a bit puffed too after dragging me and my sofa all the way up and down.
