I visited Charlotte in hospital again today and she’s starting to get better. She’s still on morphine for the pain, but she can move more easily and she’s starting to get bored, which is a good sign, if frustrating for her.
While I was there, Mrs B – aka The Small Bear – answered my reply to her comment the other day, to say she was at home and so, when I left the hospital, I took it upon myself to impose on her hospitality. In fact, Sir Bruin had also arrived home by then (they were kind and unwise enough to let me have their address some four years ago), so they invited me in for coffee and a chat. Which was a pleasure.
When Paul the Fish called round this morning, he had sea trout for sale – a rare treat, so we bought some and ate it this evening with local asparagus and Jersey Royal potatoes. I baked the fish en papillote with a splash of wine, and it was delicious. We are building up a list of favourite fish, but it keeps lengthening. And methods for each; ditto. I’m not too good at narrowing down favourite foods, actually. I like too many of them.
