Now is the winter…

of MY discontent.

Winter has us in its grip and it has been cold, snow in the mountains and chilly here.

My neighbour’s Liquidambar tells the story.

I have to have an operation; I enjoy great health, the only thing that has ever bugged me is tiredness from a mosquito-borne fever (Ross River Fever) which I caught years ago.
I spent last weekend in hospital and I was so grateful to come home. I have to have a ‘procedure’ on Wednesday – I really hope I don’t have to stay long.

I have an iPod, a book and a little recorder containing favourite music. we have bought glamorous new sleepwear, so I’m prepared.
I have a favourite book which I have read a few times over the years – it’s been a while, so I thought I would give it another airing.

I must have bought this copy in the 1960s. the author is Henry Handel Richardson (Ethel Florence Lindesay Richardson). It’s a wonderful saga and I can’t understand why it’s never been made into a film or miniseries, some of her books have been, ‘The Getting of Wisdom’ is one that comes to mind.

Needless to say, my mind hasn’t been on sewing although I have cut out a shirt, ready to sew when I’m released.

I shall be out as soon as possible.

This is a photograph of our winter garden…only a couple of deciduous trees.
