Here I am again, All alone at last ! well actually I have been since Ann left last Thursday and I am only now making time to update the "blog" I had lovely visit with Ann, although she is actually my sister Margaret's oldest friend, I include her as a friend of mine as well. She was staying with me and made visits to Margaret each day. On Wednesday she and I had the morning in Bath and although Ann has been here before she had never had the pleasure of coffee in the pump room......so.....yes you can guess where we went for coffee and crumpets whilst of course listening to the trio playing their lovely music. Ann also bought me a lovely present it is a "globe" not a world globe as is normal, but one that is actually a map of Bath in much detail...even where the parks are you can "see" people walking with their dogs etc. I might try and take a photograph and share it some time. Ann was not here long as she had to go home on Thursday as she is dog sitting this week. I have not done a lot since she left, did spend the afternoon with Margaret on Saturday as Mitch was away playing bowls, and I know he feels happier if someone is there with Margaret. It was a nice afternoon and she was able to get out to the summer house and sit awhile so that was good.
Yesterday I had a lovely day. I invited my friend Cait to join me for lunch at Holt .... I think I told you that I had taken Mary before she left...It was just as nice as first time for our lunch afterwards we went to explore as I knew there were gardens there in the village called "the Courts" I had always wanted to see them but as is often the case we never seem to get to places that are right on our doorstep...What a miss that was once we found the gardens I discovered just how fantastic they are, almost all on the level with easy wheelchair access. Actually they belong to the National Trust and after a few peaceful hours there I decided that I would actually join the N.T. for a year as I can see Mary and I going over to the Courts quite often and also there are at least another 6 or 7 National Trust properties within 15 miles of us here. What a find, I am so pleased that Cait and I went to investigate... On Monday when my friend Pam comes over if the weather is nice I will take her over to see it as well. ...The flowers, trees green areas and of course the Lillie ponds with red white and pink blooms floating around were just breathtaking...
Today I had to take the car to get new tyres fitted. On Monday the car had been in for a service and they decided that two tyres were needed both on the near side,,,,I am going to tell Mary that she will have to go on a diet as they are on her side of the car !!! This afternoon I have been reading all about the benefits of the National Trust membership and marking various places I would like to visit..
Mary is enjoying her holiday in Edinburgh. Today she will be on the Isle of Skye she has gone on a three day tour from Edinburgh I haven't heard from her from the Island but perhaps her mobile does not have a signal. She will be back at her friends late tomorrow and no doubt I will hear from her then. I do hope she has enjoyed herself and that perhaps she may have found some long lost cousins on the Island. (Her Mother was an islander)
Thank you for the many prayers for Max. He has had the op. on Monday morning and was allowed home late afternoon he will not know for sure what the results will be for another 10 days or so, we are just praying
that there is nothing to alarm us...any more than we are !!!.........
Will be back again in a few days. Till then remember to
LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
