What a Monday!!

I had planned to post on Monday as I had found this

my clematis, and this

my dwarf hop, both beginning to sprout and they are on the north side of my house, so spring is really on its way!!!

Kathryn and I had planned to go to Avebury the local stone circle and take you all on a trip but that all changed when my neighbours elderly relative who is house sitting for them, could not be raised by me! I eventually got in and he was in such a bad way I got him to his GP, who then wanted him taken here

Bath Royal United Hospital A & E, Medical Admissions! and I didn't get home from here until 20.30 hrs. It is very difficult to answer questions for someone who has failing memory and you know nothing about his health or medication, his grand daughter has been keeping an eye on him, but by 18.00 when they decided to keep him overnight, I thought enough was enough. She should be here! So I admit to telling a 'porky' and saying the hospital wanted to see her!!! Mark collected me , as thank goodness K was home so was able to collect Tori from school and took the car! The ironic thing was on the way home I got a call from the grand daughter to say she wasn't surprised he was unwell as he she thought had taken 4 days medication in one day!!!! Now couldn't that have solved alot of problems if she had been there! I know this family always roll there eyes when he's about. Some families are odd and don't know how lucky they are, my daughters would have been thrilled to have a grand father as they have never had one! He is such a lovely man forgetful but lovely.

Look at the sky as I was leaving, beautiful!

I hope he is feeling better today :-}

Take care

You are always a good neighbour Libby, this is not the first time you have come to someone's rescue if my memory serves me..!
Poor old chap. What goes around comes around, good and bad...you will be and are blessed..

What a good neighbour Libby! It makes me angry when I see how some families carry on! Total lack of any sense of duty!

Love ya!

Phew, what a day Libby. Fortunately there were some things in your garden to cheer you up.

It's nice to see that there are still good neighbours around, well done Libby!
