My goodness – I’m usually fairly resilient but the homeward trek was really quite something. I know that we had breakfast three times on Monday morning – or was it Monday morning? I was reading Amy Tan and then got tired and watched ‘How Green was my Valley’ – which I thought was great – and then Calendar Girls and the Jungle Book. But I foundered on Muppets Treasure Island with Billy Connolly and Chinese subtitles.
So straight in to leading a Quiet Day on Tuesday .. and I downloaded 474 e mails most of which offered to perk me up in various unmentionable ways .. and all sorts of issues and difficulties have arisen in my absence and they have all been dealt with .. and they all got on just fine without me. Great!
