I have been staying with my brother all week. He lives in Northumberland. I haven't had access to a computer but I am laboriously typing this on my phone. I am slow at finger-typing.
He and his wife have really spoiled me all week. They decided I needed to be coddled and put back on my feet. It's been lovely.
I have been for a lot of long walks. This is a beautiful empty light-filled country. Also they have a sweet little daughter - she was born prematurely 6 years ago. No long term ill effects.
Stupidly yesterday I sprained my ankle on the beach at Bamburgh. I go home today - thankfully train not car. It will be a bit of a challenge to negotiate New Street Station while hopping.
Good news is I got an interview for another lecturing job. That's early tomorrow morning. I will have to drive to that so I hope my ankle is a bit better.
Because I have been away I haven't seen the new Breaking Bad. Slightly scared to go online this morning for fear of spoilers.
Ouch, poor you. Hope the trip home is straightforward. A taxi to interview is always a possibility. Fingers crossed for that.
We're off to East Coker today: will take pictures.
the deep lane
Shuttered with branches, dark in the afternoon,
Where you lean against a bank while a van passes
We just had to do that...
Sorry to hear about the ankle. Hope the journey home isn't too arduous. Good luck with the interview!
Thanks - I'm home now, which feels good.
Would you like me to drive you to and from the interview? M is here at the moment, and I'm feeling a good deal better today from the bug we had.
Thank you. it is quite early in the day so May be not practical. i think i will be able to drive tomorrow morning
Gosh, is it really six years since your niece was born? I'm very glad she's doing well.
Hope you manage the travelling and that the interview is a good one.
I know: 2006. It seems incredible. She's literally top of her class, and I saw her take the lead role in a little play about witches too, so she's doing really well.
Well I'll be thinking of you!
Thanks happytune, hope we can meet up soon

Sounds like the coddling was good.
Hope the interview went well and you and they are right for each other.
Thanks pennski, I should find out tomorrow.
