Manga Tone! So that’s me, then… you could have given me a bit more muscle, though! Thanks to a reader in Japan for that.
I’m pleased to say, for anyone who might be interested, that things are going well and the blood-test results are spot on target.
A reader in UK, who knows our family circumstances well, having read all three books (thanks, Ian!!)…
…sent me this:
My son Leo (and, indeed, Dave’s daughter Jaymee) lived with two mums most of the time: they spent a lot of time with their two dads, of course – and now they have all four of us, since the girls took over the house from Dave’s father. So now they each have their ‘real’ mum and dad, and a spare set as well. Kewl.
A reader in South Africa sent me the (presumably Irish) Cavanagh coat of arms. Interesting. I didn’t know we had one. So thanks, Mathys… the lion is good (fighting spirit!!) but I’m not really sure what the rest of it represents. If I had been asked to devise a coat of arms with fighting spirit, I might perhaps have started here:
More our style, especially the bare chests! They too have a slightly Japanese ‘Manga’ look about them.
But thanks, everyone, for your thoughts and good wishes. ‘Keep off the bed of nails, Tone – if you got a puncture you’ll bleed to death!’ advises another correspondent. Up to a point, he’s right, since I have deliberately thinned blood right now, but it’s not THAT thin!
So, fitness is visibly returning, and I may even lift a few lighter weights later – upper body only – before going to shout at the gymnasts again. A few suitable pictures, then, to keep everyone’s eye on the ball:
Well, that lot makes me feel even better. Slowly, things are going to get back to normal… and, as yet another reader drew to my attention…
Indeed. Thanks, guys, and see you again soon!
