From ‘Valley of Death’ to Florence Nightingale

“Into the valley of death rode the six hundred.” This famous phrase is part of the poem, “The Charge of the Light Brigade,” written by Alfred Lord Tennyson, the British Poet Laureate. Put to paper only a few days after he heard of the disastrous event, this poem remains with us in modern times with its phrases “half a league, half a league, half a league onward,” “cannon to right of them, cannon to left of them,” and “theirs not to reason why, theirs but to do and die.”

Florence Nightingale or Nurse Ratched... which one are you married to?

It was on the fourth day of being bedbound with flu that, with the cupboards still bare, I resorted to an emergency Co-op grocery drop courtesy of Deliveroo. As I tipped the rider and hobbled back indoors to rip open the plastic bag of satsumas, soup, chocolate mousse, mango and toilet tissue, I wondered if he was available, romantically. My own knight in shining armour was nowhere to be seen.
