Well, I have bought my 'DRIVE' four-wheeled walker to help me to walk a little bit further. Now the next task is to train Tess to walk at the side without weaving back and forth in front of me. Watch this space. At present it is parked in the garage. When I get an opportunity I will photograph it for here. Too tired to go and do it tonight.
It is hot, humid and oppressive and every movement is almost too much. I shouldn't complain about the weather (although we had a thunderstorm during the night and all pots got a good soaking) - it is fairly late evening and, according to my mobile, it is around twenty three degrees here, although it is airless and feels much hotter than that to me.
It has been our Poetry afternoon - always a pleasure and today especially so as friend D came. She has been very ill indeed for some weeks and it is a delight to see her back and what is more in good form. So welcome back D. All but one of us there and a good variety of poets - Keats, Hughes, Cope, Larkin, and many more. It is always hard to remember them afterwards.
And my gardener D came and mowed my lawn and cut back a tree that was getting too big for its boots, and cut off some plants which had finished flowering. Looks much tidier. Taxi to Hairdresser in the morning and then Chiropodist just after lunch and a quiet afternoon.
