During an 8 hour wait for the op on my hand, I had time to do this drawing ….
This is the third bit of surgery I have had for arthritis …  Robert says I will be a totally new woman soon!  ….. typing with one hand!

I also had Martin Gayford’s conversations with Hockney to read, and a spy thriller (by Henry Porter – rather good but my sleep and water deprived brain found that too difficult!)….  

If I was not already married to a Yorkshireman, I could fall in love with Hockney!   I did not know he was a pacifist as well….  BUT I am sure lots of us who have not lived in LA for 30 years, already know about intimate relationship with the Dorset/English landscape!
