quiet sunday

25 Nov

london 8.08pm 7.4C dry now, but the ground looks a bit wet, so maybe it rained earlier. sunday 2018

sunday i usually go out on the bus to the paddington library, but i have to stop doing that now that the foot is broken. so i just took the short bus ride to the pimlico library instead.

there they only have the sunday times and even then the main paper was being read so slowly by an old man. in the end i did not bother to wait till he finished. i read the other parts of the paper. i know from past experience that there is not much of interest in the sunday papers these days. 

but i was able to borrow a book , gone with the windsors by laurie graham. it was in diary form, about an american divorcee who is friends with wallis simpson and the diary was written by her set at the time she met wallis simpson when they were in england and how they met the prince of wales and the outcome of that meeting.  it was fiction of course but rather interestingly told.

my foot seem to hold up well with a surgical boot and a crutch for support so that i was able to bear the short walk to and fro the bus stops without reopening the break.

    I suppose the boot really grants some mobility in early recovery.

      it is constructed in such a way that all the weight is on the heel of the foot. it thus lifts the toe end where the break is ,away from the ground. but really the only sure way of healing it is not to walk on it at all. but it is quite difficult to stay housebound for such a long time.
