Taking a break

patient-careBooker Talk is going to be rather quiet for the next few weeks since I am going into hospital tomorrow for some rather extensive surgery. Even if there is a reliable Internet/WIFI connection in the hospital I don’t expect to be in the frame of mind or physical condition for blogging etc.

I had grand plans to write some blog posts in advance to keep you amused. But they never got beyond the planning stage. I’m sure you will manage perfectly fine without me however. I just wanted you to know in case you were wondering why I am not replying to your comments. I promise it’s not that I don’t love you any more. Normal service will resume soon I hope.

  34. Good luck! Don’t worry about blogging, or even reading. If you need to engage brain, consider catching up on podcasts or audiobooks, so that you don’t have to worry about holding a book or cost of wifi. Let me know if you need any suggestions
