Temporary disaster!

On Monday I had an operation to remove the metal pins and plate holding my ankle bones together. Despite being assured the recovery time would be minimal for such a procedure, I am now bed-bound for the next two to six weeks. Not ideal! It does mean I can catch up on my reading but it means no more library visits for the time being, and I certainly won’t be able to start my research at the National Library yet. 

Tired, annoyed, still nauseous from the effects of the morphine, and all in all not a happy chap.
