Today, I’ve mostly been babysitting. Weeza had an appointment over lunchtime and in to the early afternoon, so I extricated myself from my lunch engagement and a couple of meetings. It all went fine, I picked up a couple of friends and took them to the lunch as promised, and gave them papers to be handed out – I’m secretary of this lunch club, which is very little work.
Zerlina wanted to go to sleep soon after Weeza left, so babysitting didn’t involve any actual childcare. When I arrived home, the Sage said that Al and Dilly has to go to Norwich, so I’ve spent the evening here babysitting too, except while I was cooking dinner and the Sage took over.
He has had a day of looking after people too. John is now in the local cottage hospital, the Sage having organised it. That is, he would have had to wait longer or maybe gone to a different hospital, but the Sage helped. Then he went to see Andy, who is also in the same hospital. And then he went to visit the wife of a dear friend of his, who died a few days ago. So he has excelled even his usual lovely self in kindness today.
