Today I have another hospital visit. The hospital is in King’s Lynn, so I took the opportunity to do some shopping on the way. P. wanted some fabric to make a cuddly toy for her granddaughter, and I had to visit the bank to pay in some money for the parish magazine.

She is still a bit sceptical and thinks that I might have had the operation for nothing but she has requested another biopsy, this time on my ear where I have another lesion.

Perhaps that’s because I’ve previously read Barthe’s Camera Lucida and John Berger’s Another Way of Telling both of which I found much harder. Continue reading 28th May 2017
