The good doctor Long came yesterday from Paris, arriving mid-afternoon and left mid-morning today -a genuine flying visit. We are mulling over the possibility of the two of us having one final trip to my favourite hotel in Hua Hin, Thailand, towards the end of March. Much depends upon Michael’s workload commitments but I am making enquiries and hoping.
If we do decide to go, I just hope that I will be strong enough to make the trip without being too much of a nuisance. I had a bit of a fright yesterday when I took almost 15 minutes to get out of my study chair at lunch. My minder, Jane, was at the other end of the house so would have rescued me in the end but I did panic a little. However, since then I have Â not noticed more Â general deterioration in the strength of my legs, so hopefully that was a one-off.
