A wander through the morning
I caught this interview this morning and was not at all reassured about the fate of women in Afghanistan. This was after I had meandered through Ash dieback and a marvellous young man talking about schizophrenia, whose name I wanted to remember but dozed off at the vital moment.
Trouble's bandage has been taken off and he seems to be fine, except when near HWISO, where he dissolves into a puddle of wide-eyed, self pity. HWISO is lovely and all that but a complete sucker when it comes to that dog. Just saying.
New word of the week, thanks to Jo, "cockwomble", which I am assured is a swear word that, if you type enough, autocorrect eventually grasps. I like a nice new swear word.
The first lot of sugar beet is being lifted. This a very noisy process, especially as it is so dry. We are absolutely desperate for rain here now. The dust is ridiculous and the crops need a drink. Please go outside and blow any rain in our direction.
Anyways, not much to say this morning. A bit of an uninspiring day.
OH - I knew there was something. Apparently, Dr W says that both the tumours in my shoulder appear to have shrunk.
