It's true. It is beautiful. I'm feeling a bit guilty making fun of hospital food, fearing that my new friends here might take it personally. Hospital food is universal. That much is apparent. I wrote this as a comment on the last posting:
One thing I want to emphasise. In spite of having a little fun with the food, the last thing I want to do is give an impression that the hospital is at fault. They have to feed a vast variety of people many of whom would regard the way I like food cooked as wrong. Many served by a rural hospital, particularly the older patients, expect vegetables to be what I call sadly overcooked.
The staff here and facilities are wonderful, especially in view of severe budget restrictions. Within two days, I've learned the ropes and fitted in, or we've adjusted to each other. I'd hate any of them reading this to take my fun personally when they look after me so well and I'm so comfortable!
That's all. Now I can go to sleep happy!
