March and April 2017

Mum unwell.
A short post about Mum. She had a series of falls and as a result was in hospital for quite a while and not in a very good state. She is home now but needs quite a lot of new care and help. IT was a very difficult few weeks as she was so confused and distressed.
We had lots of trips to Lancaster Hospital to visit her and I went to relatives (her sister) near the Humber Bridge to let them know how she was and keep them up to date.

Spring is sneaking in and it feels good.
The garden and Eden Valley are coming to lovely vibrant life.

On April 1st my gorgeous honorary God Daughter Lolly gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Martha. She and her partner are thrilled. It was a thrill to meet the baby and have a little snuggle.

At home, the garden was looking lovely. All the ivory coloured tulips I planted last autumn came up and lasted well. Fills my heart with warmth.

Rosie entered her first dog show – just a fun thing for Eden Animal Rescue at Brougham Hall. She came third in her class – golden oldies!
