My dear Margo
I was so relieved and delighted to get your letter and so glad you are better - I know only too well how long it takes to get over shingles in head & eye, I had it for 2 or 3 months with a bandaged eye! And even now my forehead and eye are weather profets (sic)! Yes we are having a very trying cold winter three weeks of snow and ice but the thaw set in yesterday and today there is not much snow left and the sun is out and birds singing, we were lucky here only about 5 inches, the main road was kept clear, now we expect floods! I am so lucky with this house it is so warm, oil central heating all through, when the sun shines I get it all! If the weather holds I am going to Angela in Gloucestershire on March 6 then we go on 15th to Eton as Angela's boy Peter is being confirmed that day at Eton. Alison came down for two nights which was lovely, Angela has been too. But I am so lucky having Nora Marsh living with me she is so charming and copes with me when I get bad headaches. There has been a very nice chapel made on the North side of the church after the organ was moved to the West End, its dedicated to St Francis and I have given the altar rails in memory of my Kim, it's really really very lovely and improved the church a lot, I wonder when Kay will get married? how exciting Edward and Joan to have another child I am so pleased.
With my love and I do remember you in my prayers.
