It was a splendid morning - there was a big bank of cloud on the horizon with the winter sun coming and going behind, and outlining the top right hand edge of the cloud in gold.
A quiet day. Chatted to Bea on the email and Audrey on the phone. The Captain and I made an apple, quince and medlar crumble, and he went out and caught some shopping while I did the washing and ironing.
I am keeping ahead of all the cards and letters - and that is a first. There are plusses as well as minusses to being housebound.
Here is a good joke from Bea. Context: a health and safety survey has been done of doctors surgeries, and some of them have failed - spectacularly from the sound of it.
So, the joke:
A friend says to her neighbour - "Did you hear that maggots were found in a doctor's surgery?"
Friend replies - "I don't believe it! How did they get past the receptionist?"
