Doubled Up With Laughter

Mum has recently been transferred to the Rehabilitation ward of Romsey Hospital. So much more user friendly than Southampton General, this is a small building with a manageable number of patients, staff able to offer tailored treatment, and free parking. Jackie drove me there this afternoon.

As can be seen here, our mother, although still not very mobile, is back to her normal self. She engaged in an animated, humorous, and lively conversation, involving recent memories and long-distance reminiscences which accord with my own recollections. The head-bent posture was of Mum doubled up with laughter.

This evening we dined on Jackie’s splendid pork paprika, flavoursome savoury rice, and tender runner beans with which she drank Hoegaarden, Elizabeth drank Hop House lager, and I finished the Merlot.
