Woke up this morning to the most beautiful California blue sky (see pic) ….but in York!!!! We are having a long weekend here to celebrate our wedding anniversary, walk the city walls and to see the amazing artefacts (pic – Middleham jewel) in the Yorkshire Museum, and although my leg will cope just fine…my right hand is complaining about my daily massaging of the strongest tendon in the body (which I have to grab and bend about)…so now my arm needs someone to massage it……..Jay??
We spent Sunday in Harrogate with (bro-in-law) Marcus and his family (the lovely Sharon and their 3 fab boys)… we sat around the table and looked at the boys’ wonderful artwork…and we talked about our favourite Bonds and Bond films…..You have to see the film about the true life story of a climber who fell and had to cut off his own trapped arm Marcus said… apparently the only thing that saved him was a vision of his yet un-met wife and unborn son – he made a decision to move towards and focus on that future…before slicing off his arm and then (presumably single-handedly) acquiring said family….So…. here’s my vision… it’s autumn, season of mists and mellow fruitfulness… and I take a long, running jump and scrump an apple from one of the overhanging trees round the corner from our house….hopefully all the slicing has already been done on my tendon…
There’s a third person in this marriage of ours. We’ve had (cat) Troy for 18 years. He was mildly bemused when he first heard me clunking along on the crutches but then instantly accepted it. He leaves his fur everywhere; is a messy eater; costs us a fair penny and can open doors but never shuts them. We deserve a greeting like this when we get back home!…..
