It's the anniversary of Ced's birth today and, had he lived, he would have been 83 years old. It's been an emotional week so far with the birth of the baby and the death of a friend, and now it should be my special time to celebrate Ced's life but I'm a bit of an emotional wreck so any celebrations are on hold until after the memorial service for my friend on Saturday. For now, all I plan to do in the way of celebration is have an Indian meal delivered tonight.
Today is set aside for some retail therapy. I'd hoped to do a bit of food shopping yesterday but timings didn't work out so I have to do that without fail, and then I'll be free to hit the garden centres! I'm just buying the plants for the nine pots today ... the new wooden planters will be planted up later on. I've made a list of possibilities but really it depends on what is available. I definitely want some cosmos and some lobelia but really, anything that fits in with the overall colour scheme will do just fine ... it'll be nice to ring the changes a little.
