|140/365: dianthus 'memories'|
I'm still feeling fragile from a combination of the after effects of the migraine and the awful news that one of my brothers has been diagnosed with a serious illness and is awaiting treatment. I'm not giving any more details than that as it his story and he really wouldn't like me talking about it, but it was a shock to hear the news.
I spent a fair bit of yesterday doing my best to relax. In the end I didn't stay in bed as I received notification that a parcel would be delivered so, as I needed to be able to get to the door quickly, I decided to rest on the sofa instead. I've had dealings with this particular courier company before and they don't allow much time for you to get to the door ... one time I'd walked from the living room to the front door in time to see the courier van disappearing up the road with my parcel on board! On this occasion I reached the door in plenty of time so there are now six lofos plants to be dealt with as well, as a guara and another fuchsia which are due any day ... M knows about these so they aren't part of the (already broken) agreement!
Today I need to pick up some salad stuff but that's all I need so it won't take too long. Then it's back home and a quiet day to look forward to ... piano, reading, and doing as little as possible!
