Ann and I drove up to see Denis today. It was the first time we’ve seen him since his three separate operations involving a pacemaker, two stents and finally a heart valve. He was in pretty good spirits, all things considered, but did look a bit frail.
We took him to The Fortescue Arms in Billingborough - our favourite haunt when we’re in these parts. One thing that wasn’t affected, was Denis’ appetite, and he soon polished off a bucket of Liver, Bacon and Mash followed by Banoffee Cream Pie!
We had a quick coffee back at his, before heading home - and it was a gorgeous drive back, even better than last Sunday.
