In spite of the weather turning from bright sunshine to wet mid way through the morning, my gardener continued to work in the rain. All the fencing is now here ready to be assembled and this afternoon the two end fence posts have been concreted into place and propped up to dry overnight.
No post yesterday as I went down with some kind of sickness and diarrhoea bug on Tuesday afternoon. Friends have been brilliant and at the moment friend W has taken Tess to stay there overnight so that I don't have to take her out first thing in the morning. Yesterday evening my son called out the 111 doctor and she gave me a good examination and said she thought I was on the mend. Today I am much better although weak after a couple of days with absolutely nothing to eat. Thank goodness for my son living near and for my good friend W. Tess adores her anyway so I am sure she doesn't mind sleeping there. (especially as she has the run of the house, whereas here she sleeps in her crate).
I am hoping to stay up to watch the 9pm programme on Prince Charles. I am a great admirer and feel over the years he has been much maligned. It will be interesting to hear what his nearest and dearest have to say about him - after all they know him much better than any of us do.
