Hopefully I can wave goodbye to the sight of this plaster cast this afternoon. If all is well and the breakages have healed properly I should be well and truly on the road to recovery and ‘normal’ living. That also means back to work on Monday.
Meanwhile I am very slowly making headway in William Boyd’s The New Confessions. I am very restless and impatient now. However, Boyd is one of my favourite authors, and is able to keep me going even though I am very easily distracted. This is a fascinating book, that spans the 20th century from the very beginning to the mid-70s, with an unsympathetic narrator. I am writing a full review as I go along – I do so love being able to use my iPad Notes for this: you can be typing lying down, hanging in chairs, holding the Pad in whatever direction is most comfortable. The notes are saved automatically and then I can go upstairs to my laptop and find them there – ready to print or simply to copy and paste. I never thought I’d become an Apple fan but here I am – I could not have done without these wonderful gadgets these few weeks. They’ve definitely kept me sane.
I’ll post the review shortly, must get today over with first!
