Farewell dear little car. I didn't watch her go. The chap from the garage where I bought her came this afternoon to take her away after they agreed to buy her back from me.
I am sad but I am also realistic and I know that my eyesight and my mobility problem combined make it sensible to quit now. A - the salesman from whom we have bought our cars for a good few years - came to collect her and brought me a delightful bunch of flowers - roses, tulips, tiny-flowered daffodils, a couple of hyacinths and an iris. Now I ponder where to put them that is not near a radiator. At present they sit in the kitchen and may well stay there.
Another happening today was that S, a friend from the Isle of Man, rang for a chat - what a delightful surprise. Thank you so much S if you are reading this - you started my day off on the right note. I opened up my laptop to send you an e mail but can't find your e mail address - please do send me it if you can find my e mail address to send it to!
Another day of heavy downpours interspersed with sunshine. Because I had to wait in for my car to be collected I missed my walk but then I also escaped a drenching if I had been caught in a shower.
