Last week was spent in Dumfries and Galloway; not somewhere I've been to before, but I did know that there are many lovely gardens and nurseries round about. The cottage was lovely - though no mains electricity or anything; the windmill and the rayburn were wonderful and kept us warm and cosy and well fed all week long.
Because the rain always stopped for us as we left the cottage, the gardens and nurseries were a joy to visit - too many to talk about them all, but a couple yielded some plants I've been looking for and others that I didn't know I needed.
Of course, this only explains the last week; before that? Well, there have been lots of things going on - family visiting from Australia, gardening etc. But really? Just very preoccupied with what's coming up this week: another major op but one which I hope is just as successful as the last and will mean being fully mobile again.
Wish me luck.
