Life at Château Brown has been very hectic of late what with one thing and another, and I've had very little time to spare for blogging (or anything else).
I know that you are a kindly and thoughtful lot, so I wanted to assure you that my family and I are in good spirits and good health. I'm just off on a short break and I very much hope to return to blogging on my return.
I went round to Martha's for tea the other evening and I was chatting with her and her husband about being fortunate. There is no doubt that happiness is not correlated with income, once you earn more than a very basic minimum. It seems to be largely a state of mind: one can be miserable when one has no problems, or cheerful in the face of major difficulties. So it may well be that the fortunate man is simply one who considers himself to be so.
If that is the case then I wish you the very best, and hope that you may all be as fortunate as I.
