Our ill friend had just returned from xrays and was quite visibly in distress, but just before we arrived, his nurse had given him some pain medication and within a few minutes, he was much more normal.
Back at the well Brother Friends' house after the visit, we consumed party pies, sausage rolls and mini quiche, meant to go with champagne on auction day. The best laid plans of mice and men....

Arum lilies at Box Hill hospital, just past their prime. The building in the background being built is a new home for our taxation office and one we can see from The Highrise even though it is a long way away. Beyond the street is a park with a small lake.
Within a couple of weeks this part of Box Hill hospital will be shut down and I don't know what will happen to it, either renovated or demolished. All patients will be moved to a brand new building.
