I am getting back to normal today. My niece has gone back home to near Derby, driving part of the way through thick fog and part through sunshine and then getting home to a dull, damp day. She has just rung me to say she is back home.
Yesterday I had a really lovely birthday with lots of cards, e cards and e mails - three deliveries of beautiful flowers - sixteen cards through the post and quite a few visitors too.
Today I am busy organising meals for the farmer and me from left overs, changing and washing the bedding on one of the spare beds and putting on a quick blog. So here it is.
I thought you might like to see photographs of two of my presents which are so artistic and so beautiful. Unfortunately the stained glass panel has not photographed well but the vase has come out first class.
So now I shall go and sit wearing the jumper the farmer bought me and reading the latest Bill Bryson book, bought me by friend G.
See you tomorrow.
