Bit of good news: Sis-in-law officially cancer free! Not the end of our worries, but that's one in the pincer for the villainous crab. Her magnificent daughter is running her first half in her mother's honour https://www.justgiving.com/freya-newton/.
Respect for those who defy the weather today. Even here, mostly sheltered, it is not pleasant. Shall be doing stairs and stuff today, I think. No real excuse for not going out, except that my mind is a bit bent. Some days it's wise to set the bar very low indeed.
Dibs, I sure hope you are not very tall! Life balance in your trade? Used to be in the small print of the hypocratic oath that you signed body and soul over to those who drew up the shift schedules. So my father (a medic) told me. I possess an extraordinary letter from my grandfather's mother to my grandfather (also a medic), six months after he got married to my grandma (also a medic). The detailed how his father (my great grandad, also a medic) had taken to bed with shame after hearing of the marriage, such was the disgrace in the medical community of considering marriage when you held a prestigious residency. Can I recommend a career in mathematics? No shift work, no life-death bad days at the office, only madness in the way of work related hazards. Beats me how docs stayed human then. Perhaps they didn't. Not sure all of them do now.
Me? Trying to stay human. About 4 miles, saw a little egret. Gave up on the way back and walked. Did 4 easy sets of steps, thus completing the contract.
