Doctor in the Mousehouse



Those who follow the non-imaginary adventures of the denizens of Bleak House may wish to know that Mrs. Bleak has been admitted to a local hospital for observation and treatment following a difficult night. She is resting comfortably, as the saying has it, although we are currently unsure concerning the diagnosis.

This means, among other things, that I will be away from home quite a bit during the coming day or days, taken up alternately with concern and boredom. I will probably not be posting -- although if I do it is more than likely to be about hanging around hospital corridors.
