A white Toyota hybrid comes purposefully down the drive. It parks by the front door. Out steps an attractive, very well spoken, young lady in a nurses uniform. She's holding a black leather doctors bag . '' I've come to give Monsieur his vitamin injection ".
Amid some momentary confusion ( she seems to think Angus is ' le monsieur ' in question ) we find she's come to visit the very old farmer. The usual district nurse is on holiday for two weeks and this is her stand in. '' They told me it was the house by the speed bump ". She is redirected to the second speed bump, 200 metres away, at the other end of the village.
Over breakfast ' the font ' wonders if a vitamin injection might spur me on to putting up shelves in the kitchen. Swedish humour.
