Sorry for my absence; not as though I have nothing on my mind, it's just that I've been lacking inspiration, standing at the bar, shopping, watching the telly and sleeping, I should have been more thoughtful not leaving people think the worst. I apologise again. Glorious weather coming across in the taxi, Spring is definitely in the air, very sunny with not a cloud in the sky, primroses & daffodils everywhere, although temperatures are very low, when the nurse came by this morning it was -8° C. My operation for Jan. 11 was postponed because my haemoglobin level was so low I risked having a blood quantity problem in case of a haemorage durng the intervention, however I have since been given the all clear, the operation will take place tomorrow. The taxi got me to the hospital in Brest at 3pm., the operation will comprise cauterising a cancerous lesion in my liver and taking my bag away by reversing the first operation on my intestines. I should be here for a week to 10 days, and perhap's a week's convalescence to follow; see you then. Da bo'chi/ Kenavo.

I'm going from one thing to another: renal insufficiency, to lack of red corpuscles; lack of red corpuscles; too much potassium, now it's a too low hemoglobine level, leading too my G.P. telling me that I'm working on only half-power. Blood-transfusion & tests next Tuesday to find out where there's a blood leak because at the moment they have no idea as there are no outward signs, bit of an enigma! Hope to have a good new year's holiday period which will be followed by the annual low of January & February, starting up again at Easter. By the way, a special thanks to Fran May with her pianist for her concert on Dec. 23.

Big day at the Coreff brewery yesterday for the proverbial, plus food & music. I didn't go until the evening because of my routine nurses visits. Mike drove me down, where on the way we encountered a lake where the road should have been, quite disturbing; arriving late, most of the guests had already left, plus many of my friends and colleagues hadn't turned up due to the bad weather, we said hello, drank a few beers, then parted after saying good-night to all, leaving the stragglers at the bar.

A big day yesterday beginning with a hospital visit for an MRI scan on my liver with positive results; followed by a great evening full of ambiance led by George Cadoudal & friends with their bagpipes, Fran May and her pianist with a celebration of songs, Gareth y Cymro with his 'Jac y Do' comic Welsh song, interviews & anecdotes, chestnuts roasted on the open fire and picau ar y maen (Welsh Cakes), all filmed by France 3 Rennes. Now we wait to see the bar on the telly..

Spain is different to the Uk, The English don't have a parliament and rule only by dint of a larger population, whereas the Castilian oligarchy rules supreme in Spain, the Catalans are not Castilians, they have their own language, politics and culture, so why shouldn't they stand on their own if they want to? It appears as though the spirit of Franco is still extant. Nobody complained when Scandinavia split up, nor the Czechs and Slovaks. If there is any democracy it should allow for annexed countries to liberate themselves. The days of Empire whether internal or external are over, or should be.
