My friend has just sent me a photograph of me with the Orange Trio so that you can see what it (and I) looks like. Sadly I can't get it to download - perhaps it is as well. They say the camera doesn't lie - well all I can say is that I look about a hundred (and I am only eighty seven next week).
My builders have finished, left everywhere neat and tidy and gone away. Now we wait to see if it will work and if the wall will dry out. I am keeping the room well aired during the day and then, when the heating comes on around tea time I am closing the bedroom door so that the room gets nice and warm. We shall see, but fingers crossed.
I have found a replacement gardener to finish the pre-winter jobs as my gardener is laid up with a back injury. At the moment he is mowing the front lawn and then he is going to plant some bulbs for me. When I was such a keen gardener it is very irritating not being able to do it myself. At least we are having a fine day again today - two in a row is almost unheard of for the last month.
More to add later hopefully but busy right now. I shall return
