That Painful Hand.
A week ago I bored you with the tale of my painful right, then left, hands.
At one point I seriously thought that my life was going to inextricably change for the worse. I could hardly open and close my fingers, all strength had gone, and I was in permanent PAIN. I imagined it would be (and still may be) with me for ever.
But things have now improved. I DID take Ibuprofen for the pain; which helped considerably (thank you), and also kept it as still as possible, which was not easy with all my wood chopping and dog walking duties.
I can still just feel that something had gone seriously wrong, so am being cautious; but in general I think that whatever it was has, for the moment, passed (I'm touching wood). I'm baffled!
We went with friends to the Scallop festival in Whitianga; a charming
seaside town in the Coromandal District.
Had a great time...5000 people, lots of wine...

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 45 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), a Border Collie/Black Lab' cross called Bok, a cat called Freddie, plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
