Sunshine On A Grey Day.
Gareth's Photos From Wales.
Brilliant sitting in my wheelchair, it was so good being in the front room with Richie and the dogs that we totally forgot to go outside.
Really funny, we do plan to get out to the market tomorrow afternoon; will have to wrap up as the very hot weather we had at the beginning of July for two and a half weeks has gone.
It is 24 degrees today but feels cooler to me, probably because of the wind and lack of sunshine as there is thick cloud cover.
Tuesday was great fun, ordered some gifts to be sent to three friends, two delicious bottles of organic for Gareth and Paul and a pink orchid for James at the Basjoe Coffee Shop.
Gareth called to say he had been surprised by someone coming to his door with a big box for him.
He was delighted to find two bottles of organic wine and our card inside and called right away to say it had made his day.
Think that I will give James a call see if he received the orchid and likes it, hope he does, it certainly was great fun ordering and paying for both.
Like the idea of the orchid sitting in my favourite coffee shop, wish I could but even if I could get there I can not get in as there are two steps up into the shop.
Hope that we get some more balmy days then we can go down and sit on the terrace and enjoy James’s delicious fruit shake and cake.
Will for sure to my best to get there really want to see James and hug him, he is such a lovely man and such a good friend.
Still can not believe that Leo, the other darling is not there at the Basjoe anymore, strange idea.
Just phoned James, it was good to hear how upbeat he was, he had just opened the shop when a man appeared in the coffee shop with a big box for him.
James said he was mystified and then delighted when he opened the box and saw the orchid with our card.
It made his day; he would have called us if he had our telephone number, made our day too knowing that it had cheered James up and given him such a boost.
Glad we could do that for him, but that is what friends are for, glad we made a grey day sunny for our friends.
