Cookies, New Book and A Steamroller

I had occasion to go the the surgery today, yes, on Sunday! Having waited many months for a steroid injection in my hip for the Trochanteric bursitis which has been bothering me, I was delighted to get a message giving me an appointment for this morning. The lovely Mr S suggested that, working on a Sunday, the Doctor might appreciate some home-made cookies so I made some yesterday but forgot to photograph them. The Doctor was, indeed, delighted. He doesn’t get a day off in lieu which really does seem very wrong.  By the time I thought of photos, the rest of the bake had been eaten by the lovely Mr S!

Last cookie

I was told to rest for 24 hours to allow the injection the best chance of success so I have spent another day reading. I’ve just started a book I couldn’t leave in the bookshop when we we were in Truro the other day – Sarah Winman’s ‘Still Life,’  and the loveliest coincidence – my cousin who lives in Australia wrote today about a possible visit and said she has just finished reading this book and loved it.  I also loved SW’s novel, ‘A Year of Marvellous Ways’

We heard the steamroller before we saw it…….
