My daughter sent me some lovely yellow roses today, they are now sitting next to her Mother's Day gift to me. It's hurting so much that I can't see her and give her the biggest hug in the world. I'm also really longing to see her two dogs and give them a big hug too.
If it's not bad enough having just lost our beloved Annie, waiting for a date for that all-important, potentially lifesaving surgery, we now have something else to worry about.
Yesterday afternoon was beautiful, warm and sunny. I was relaxing in the conservatory enjoying reading my new novel when a football hit the window with a loud thud, it frightened the life out of me and it's a wonder the glass didn't smash. The neighbours have been kicking their footballs into our garden on a daily basis recently and I return them back over the fence. Hubby had a word and they did apologise but they carried on playing football regardless. I began to worry that if the glass did get broken would there be any emergency glaziers still at work to call on. I've written a note and posted it through their letterbox this morning, it's polite but I have said I won't be returning any more footballs to them. They'll have to come to my door and ask for them and I actually think it's the father who kicks the balls over and not the young son. Too harsh do you think and maybe risking arrest by keeping their balls? I really don't want to be handling their balls anyway :) I think the police may have better things to do than arrest an elderly couple in poor health, we're not worried about that at all.
I took the short walk to see the horse yesterday. Someone had thrown slices of bread over the fence and the horse was enjoying eating them although I'm not sure bread is the right diet for him. Still, it meant I was able to stroke his face and he didn't move away so he liked it. He wasn't in his field today, gone to his holiday home maybe :)
I passed a house with a dragon lazing in the sun and also a message to stay safe, keep your distance and keep smiling.
