Dear weather, Please be kind to us this weekend, so that our camping trip is not too damp. It is looking a bit showery just now.
Dear car, I hope you are going to accommodate all the equipment we seem to need to take for a ‘simple’ camping weekend! Whatever happened to the idea of just throwing a tent and a few other things into the car and setting off?? We seem to have mountains of ‘stuff’!
Dear supermarkets, Do you have a particular day in which you welcome the older people amongst our population? I was wondering if it was a Thursday, because when I went in yesterday I think I lowered the average age of the shoppers by about 20 years. The fact that you seem to coordinate the visits of the older generation, with the large scale stacking of the shelves (and in particular the fruit and veg section) was not the best planning from my point of view, or indeed theirs. Luckily I employed my deep breathing technique and told myself there was no rush (and that that will be me one day!).
Dear garden birds, Again I am amazed by the selection of you that visit my garden. At one point the other day I had a jay, a robin, a woodpecker, some blue tits, a great tit, two woodpigeons, two collared doves and a couple of goldfinches all there at the same time. It was wonderful.
Dear agapanthus plant, I am a little worried about you. Unlike my other three plants, you are not showing any evidence of flower spikes this year. I know you are fairly young, but last year you produced several flowers, so it’s a puzzle that there are none this year. Your leaves look healthy enough, though.
Happy Friday everyone!
