and puffy white clouds - the District Nurse has been and has taken the bandages off my legs which were bad with Cellulitis. Two courses of antibiotics and they are a lot better. I have to contact my doctor if it reappears.
Isn't it sad how some people have a fatal flaw in their character? I am thinking here of Diego Maradonna - as so many people said in the tributes yesterday -'probably the best footballer of all time' who had flaws which led to various addictions which no doubt contributed to his early death.We have seen it before and we shall no doubt see it again - a certain kind of brilliance which seems to go with an inability to cope with either the money or the fame.
There was a time when sixty was old - now it is the new forty.
How I wish for some fresh air. It is five weeks today since I broke my hip and in that time, apart from standing by an open window and being pushed up my drive from the ambulance in a wheelchair on my return home I haven't tasted that beautiful Dales air. The Physio comes again tomorrow to assess the situation so keep your fingers crossed for me.
See you tomorrow.
