Oh John, poor you. Hope you’ll make a good recovery. It’s been cold and wet here, with snow in the north of England. Just a little warmer today though.

I’ve just started the book on my Kindle.




OMG, John, that's awful! I'm so sorry to hear it.  Cry

You need a nice young man to run errands for you, do laundry, prepare meals, generally help around the house. ...




Thanks very much, both Sara and Jeff!   Smiley Smiley

I must say, after the fifth week, you sort of get past the 'why me?!' part, and try to get to the next stage. I've been home only six days, and re food, I'm living on 'Seamless,' which is a super easy to order on line, but is probably not 'sustainable' money-wise in the long run. More motivation to get mobile! I'm attempting to keep neat, but in another week I'll definitely need some help as 'hovering' and making the bed are awkward and cleaning the bathtub is literally impossible, so I've Made Enquiries.

We shall see. I'm hoping that by summer, I'll be hopping and skipping.   Roll Eyes

(FYI, no Kindle for me, but my dead-wood version of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda  arrives this evening--can't wait!)

Call me antediluvian, but I see nothing wrong with dead-wood versions of books. I still feel there is a sort of sensual pleasure in holding in your hands a physical book. I can't imagine how an electronic book can compete with that.

I read constantly on line, but only for 'fact' or 'opinion'--newspapers and magazines and such like.

I cannot read fiction on line (or on a 'device') at all. For fiction, I need the book.

So sorry to hear about your broken hip, John!

5 weeks away from home must have been awful for you.

Glad you're home now.

I know all about the practical difficulties when you're incapacitated and single, trying to cope in your own home.

I broke my ankle 3 years ago, and had to hop on one foot for 7 weeks. I'm lucky, though, to live in a country where I could get help from the public with things I was unable to do myself.

Hope you can find some help now while you need it.  Kiss

I read Love Simon (Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda), before going to see the film this coming weekend. Whichever way round you do it, the mystery will be spoilt, and do try not to see anything showing the ending of the film! I had, which gave me a big clue. But it doesn’t really matter. The book is definitely a teenage/young adult novel, nicely written and very enjoyable once I’d worked out who all the characters were. And I'm looking forward to the film.

Thank you so much, Sonja! It was an unexpected shock, quite a blow. I was certainly NOT planning on wasting a perfectly good hip, not for another twenty years at least!  Roll Eyes

Despite the calamitous aspects, I was very lucky also. A complete stranger helped me the instant I fell and it was clear I had been badly hurt; he called for an ambulance and very kindly waited with me until I was carted away. The ambulance brought me (by happenstance or otherwise?) to the ER attached to HSS, the Hospital for Special Surgery, "the #1 Orthopedic Hospital in the Nation" (or so it says itself). Amazing friends rallied around (in New York I always say--who needs family when you have friends?   laugh ) and all I have to do now is eat, exercise (gingerly) and heal. Actually, it's hard work, takes a lot of effort. On Thursday I grabbed my rollerator/buggy and got a badly needed haircut, Friday, with some strategizing, I did some laundry, and today, I'm taking the day off--I needed it! Next week I have to start thinking about the next stage, finding a nearby center for Outpatient Therapy. Who knew how complicated this would be? Anyway, wish me luck!   Smiley Kiss

I just finished an adorable book called
Simon vs the homo sapiens agenda.
Couldn’t help myself so I drew a little something!

And then someone slides in beside me.
"Can I sit here?" he asks, and my eyes snap open.
It's Cute Bram Greenfeld, of the soft eyes and soccer calves.
I loosen the seat belt to let him in. And I smile at him.
It's impossible not to.

The operator reaches over us and pulls the guardrail down,
locking us in.

There's this pause. We're still looking at each other.
And there's this feeling in my stomach like a coil pulled taut.

"It's you," I say.
"I know I'm late," he says.

Then there's a grinding noise and a jolt and a swell of music.
Someone shrieks and then laughs, and the ride spins to life.
