This morning brought such a pleasant surprise. My carer had been and gone and I had just sat down with a coffee - and with the whole day stretching out in front of me - when the phone rang. It was S -from the Isle of Man - saying they were staying about a mile from my bungalow and could they pop in for a cuppa. Could they??? Of course they could - please,
Half an hour later S and her husband arrived with lovely gifts - a large piece of fruit cake and joy of joys - a jar of home-made lemon cheese. She read about my mother making it and how much I loved it. If you have never ever had home-made do try it - the taste bears no relation to that bought in a jar. And what is more S had made it in a few short minutes in the microwave. (My mother made it in a double boiler and it took a long time. Oh the joys of the microwave).
We had a lovely chat for a couple of hours,Then
Then a quick tour of my garden (like so often the tulips have almost finished and there is a bit of a lull in colour until the early Summer plants start doing their thing.)
Far too soon it was time for them to depart but thank you S and husband (sorry forget your name - don't think it was mentioned). You gave me a couple of hours of your time and it gave me a lot of pleasure.
I am off now to find your e mail address (I hope) so that I can send you the information you requested and I forgot to give you. Then it is out with the bread and butter and that jar in the fridge and guess what I am having for tea!
Sue** Just thought - rather silly to put info in an e mail but if you care to ring me I will give you the number over the phone. x
