Reason: fifth anniversary of father’s death this Thursday.
1. Investigate teleportation. (Problematic.)
2. Go into seclusion for day. (Difficult. Can’t afford to waste a second in world heritage site after effort, not to mention expense, of getting here.)
3. Shoulder on. (Likely choice. On a positive note, just heard of article about my book and me in local paper www.surinenglish.com - more on that in later post. Father would have been pleased.)
Five years ago, Thomas Johnson went into hospital with a routine medical complaint and came out soon after dead - from MRSA. I won’t name and shame the hospital. It’s already lurking at the bottom of league tables for cleanliness and clinical standards.
He was the best of fathers - kind, loyal, generous and with a self-deprecating sense of humour. A true friend. And I miss him more than words can say.
