ConservatorErik to Arizona Ranger: I am sorry to be the bearer of awful news, but Betsy passed away in her sleep on the night of September 16th. I know you were friends a long time, and I wanted to let you know. I loved her too, and will miss her enormously.

ConservatorErik: Thank you, Jane.. It has been enormously difficult... especially being so very far away.
Sometimes it feels as though it cannot be real.. like it has to be some prolonged nightmare or a cruel joke... or that it cannot be real at all. And others, the reality of it is crushing, visceral, profound... I feel broken inside...

ConservatorErik: I am sorry... it has been a hectic couple of days and I've not been able to even take more than a 10 minute lunch break through the days.. I am about, just insanely busy. I am glad the meds are working.. but yes, I certainly sympathise about the side effects!

ConservatorErik: 850 years... though modernity was most assuredly taking a toll already, with acid rain and other pollution causing degradation of the stone and mortar joints, the vibration of lorries and other heavy traffic causing cracking... this is yet one more major insult by the modern world.. and the worst. But over €700 Million has already been pledged in donation for the restoration... we will rebuild..

ConservatorErik: Feel free to email whenever you wish. I am told frequently that I do not take enough breaks... lol. Any encouragement to pull myself away from work can only be a good thing. I am glad that your new treatments are working so well. Hopefully, once spring is well and truly here, you can start getting out into the sunlight again.

ConservatorErik: Not so far... I am not really one for telly or cinema.. I just haven't the time. If I am roped into a film, it is one of Evvie's and she doesn't care if I spend that time working... she just wants the company, even if I am rather oblivious to the film...

ConservatorErik: You as well. I know you will have a wonderful time at Laura's, and I am sure Oliver will be in his element.

Joan flew in yesterday afternoon. Esme and Beth will also be joining us. Esme's son is spending his with his best friend and his parents, so Esme was at a loose end. I invited her along. Celeste will go collect Giselle from her care home at about 2pm...

It will be a very busy day. Much more than I am used to. But Evvie will love it and Celeste will command the kitchen with brisk efficiency... I will just attempt to stay both as out of the way as possible and ever so slightly squiffed. Lol.

All levity aside, lovey... I am ever so glad you liked it.
