Yesterday I had coffee with a friend who has an avocado tree that is laden but she has trouble picking them. The tree is planted on a steep slope. We still have the pickers from our previous property so I went and picked some for her (and me) this morning. Yum, we are both pleased with the arrangement.
I also went to visit M. in the rest home. They are going to move him to a room closer to the nursing station which is good. Apparently, he has been wandering at night and causing chaos when he has inadvertently gone into the room of the lady next to him.
He was actually very bright when I visited and we took his coffee outside onto the deck and had a chat there. he needed reassuring that he will be coming home again. The trouble is he forgets and then gets worried that he is in there for good. He seems quite happy to be there for a fortnight and I explained that in six weeks he will be back for another fortnight.
Anyway, I think his new room is a lot better - it is closer to the heart of the building and looks over the deck. I hope he will settle in there.
