First - thank you for all the kind comments yesterday.
This morning the phone rang and it was Lynn - my hairdresser who hails from north Wales. One of the ladies that came to help while my hubby was still at home had asked her how I was as she had heard I was sick.
Lynn wanted to run errands for me and this she did in the pouring rain and when she returned she had a bunch of Alstroemerias from her garden for me. Mine are nowhere near flowering yet. Thank you Lynn - you are a treasure.
I have just ventured down the garden for the first time in days to sprinkle some slug bait around my Italian Brocolli - I am very pleased with them as they have not been in for long.
