 The weather continues glorious. My sister and her husband are here. Helen is not very well.  Daniella’s father-in-law is dying of cancer. Everybody thinks I should go into Cramond as soon as they’ll have me. Paradox is to go to the shores of Loch Fyne. Will I ever see her again? No arrangements have yet been made for the nasturtiums.


Perdita will go to Helen. I will be able to be taken to visit her on any hypothesis much short of death.


That pretty well covers the news. I’ve got two more amoxicillin to take. Then I hope to feel sprightlier. We’re all meant to go out to supper on Wednesday.


Helen, despite infirmity, made us a tasty salad lunch today. Her husband David is here from Thessaloniki. We had a nice social time.


Still no knitting.


Wordle: Today was a Wordle special: ???, grn, grn, grn, grn – with lots of possibilities. I scored four, along with Thomas. Rachel and Ketki needed five. Theo and his father Roger distinguished themselves with threes, but were pipped at the post by Mark with a two. So where is Alexander?

    Will you take any back-up knitting to Cramond? Socks, perhaps?

    What will happen to Paradox on Loch Fyne?

    Good to hear you and the cats have been sorted. I am sure your family will figure out the nasturtiums. Sorry to hear about Daniella's father in law.
    I have returned to the Wordle fold and it has been rough.

    Wordle in 5 for me, as well. I am glad to hear all is sorted for the time being. I'm sure there are neighbors who would be glad to adopt your nasturtiums. I know I would!

  5. Perhaps Paradox can send you regular posts so you can keep in touch. Remember that line in "Gladiator" where he suggests imagining yourself in the future you see after the battle is over: Your hip op over, renewed mobility and back at home. Or, alternatively, peacefully knitting at Cramond whilst someone else cooks lunch.

    A month's rest and care should provide lots of knitting and reading time.I hope you can enjoy it. I'm sure Paradox and Perdita will keep you posted on their adventures.

    Hope all goes according to plan and you will be reunited with Perdita and Paradox. I too wonder about the situation for Paradox. Chloe

    I would think Pardox will be very happy with Alexander on Loch Fyne. She might even enjpy watching the Runner Ducks.
