FOOTNOTES: This week has seen a plethora of nurse and doctor appointments for me as the date for my annual check-ups comes around. Blood samples taken, breathing tests done, it is a yearly ordeal which I endure patiently, I hope. Sitting in the waiting room always affords me a chance to watch and observe my fellow humans and their idiosyncrasies. I have often based or used the characters I have played on stage or included in my stories on what I have seen my fellow humans get up to. Most actors have this ability from birth and I am no exception. Even as a child I delighted in watching how adults behaved, and used them shamelessly years later. Having been declared as fit as I could expect at my age, and that at least nothing had got worse, even if it had not got any better, I returned to the usual welcome from Chaplin and we celebrated with a tour around the garden. I am longing for our Victoria plums to ripen. Judging by the laden branches at the moment, we are in for another bumper harvest. A light patter of rain put an end to our expedition , and we retired indoors to a normally forbidden tea, toasted crumpets dripping with butter and strong tea from the pot. Well, hopefully I haven’t got another check-up until next year. Be safe, wherever your journeys take you.
