From Jonathan Ball:
Life, love and family. Aren't I lucky.
Large brain tumour removed, getting better slowly.
I live in this most magical part of the world, doing a job I love, running the shop and post office that I love. My wife Susanne visits nearly every day although she hates travelling. My two sisters and two brothers and their families have given me support above their line of duty, without which things would look very different.
Sending my appreciation and thanks for all your support, prayers and best wishes, which I have received both from new and old friends and neighbours.
Dictated by Jonathan.
