It as as though everyone has 'gone to earth' today. It is cloudy, windy, not cold but just not a pleasant day somehow. Apart from my carer this morning and then the girl from down the road who always brings me fruit at the week end to top up on the fruit bowls I have seen no-one and I have spoken to no one. I have bought a rainbow ballet tutu party dressing up skirt for my Great grand daughter - I was going to hide it - along with a few other things - for her to search for while I look at and admire her little brother (I have not seen him yet because of covid) but now that it has come (made in China - bought from Amazon - what isn't these days?) but now that it has come her mother (my grand daughter) and I have had a discussion on fit and have decided it needs to be tried on.
Sadly I can no longer get out so jobs like this - getting to town to go into the Post Office and post off the tutu to Glasgow, where she lives - involve a major operation, not helped by the fact that some days (and today is one of them) when my hands shake so much I can't begin to pack a parcel. Thank goodness for friends like S and T who always step into the breach.
It is my favourite gardening programme tonight Gardeners' World and I always learn something new every week. If you want to see some magnificent Aquelegia then go over to John (Going Gently)'s site - his photograph shows a beauty. My garden is full of them but they are mostly the ones which are almost the wild blue ones - lovely but not compared with the ones in John's garden - pop over and have a look.
Till tomorrow dear friends.
