Today has been momentous for two reasons.
1. The HD3QBEM told me she can no longer see well enough to read large print books and so life for her is now circumscribed by talking books supplied by the Foundation for the Blind. I, who read voraciously, cannot imagine what it must be like to live in such a limited fashion. Life will become more oral in our house from now on. Her left ear still has good hearing and we are glad of that. Like Pollyanna, we will go forward finding things to be glad about and generally be cheerful.
2. I built me a house. All the talk here is about affordable homes. It is election year and all political parties have policies and views as to how every New Zealander can have a home of their own. I too have an idea.... build a C A Well's Cottage.
Tonight I shall stitch another page of Ring O Roses and watch Midsomer Murders, full of self satisfaction. Ahhh.
