Carpentiria 3

I thought things would improve but it’s continued to pour rain here. The the house is worse than I thought. My friends and family have got it all upstairs. Who’d have thought I had so much stuff. And now I’ll be camping out partly in Jack’s half of the house, partly in my own. I’m hoping that A. it will stop raining here and temps go up; and B things will start happening there.
It’s been so depressing and I feel weepy all the time. But we did see old friends and that was lovely. Thank you for all your messages of comfort. Sure needed that. m

    I am amazed and impressed that you have not asked Jack to take a photograph of you as the Niobe of Carpentiria in the style of Julia Margaret Cameron, so that it can be posted here where we can all join in the teariness. On second thoughts, the picture that’s always here reminds us that you are already the Stoic of the Annex as well as the Duchess of Albany! And it’s more like the MH we all admire and venerate.

    Lots of love, o heavily-rained-upon-one
