Sadly I am still unable to upload the photos from The Ritz . On a more positive note I received a beautiful record of the occasion from my daughter. A beautiful album of precious photos in one place, treasured memories. So that I could share with you I have taken some photos of the photos.
It was certainly an event that will evoke some lovely memories for a long time to come, cherished memories of a gift given with love.
The pots at the front of the cottage have been refreshed, giving the stone walls a little hug. A patch of colour added to the white painted wall with solar lights added here and there. A cottage that gives us so much protection from the elements and is so loved in return.
The herbs are starting there journey, poking through the soil and re-emerging after a stormy few months of dormant sleep. We have started some extra ones off from seed that are almost ready to be planted into the herb garden tyres. I love to grow, cut and dry these versatile plants for Winter soups and casseroles. The vegetable garden is looking a little sorry at the moment but I am hoping Gerard will be able to potter a little more now that a treatment plan is in place for me. I will start palliative chemotherapy treatment next Tuesday. This should help to keep me comfortable, it is not a cure. I am thankful and certainly hopeful that it may give me some extra time with my beautiful family.
As always I feel blessed by your visit and your uplifting comments.
See you soon.
