On a happier note, this past week a small bird appeared in our garden with a wagging tail and it was grey on its back with yellow front and small black bib. Tony mentioned he'd seen the same bird over the Easter break when Em and I went to visit my parents. We looked it up and discovered that it is a Grey Wagtail and He has a Mrs and they have decided to build a nest in our climbing Hydrangea right by the back door! They have made a tiny nest wrapped around the base of a miniature Rose bush. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they stay and raise young. If they do, no doubt there will be more pics.

Thank you everyone
Thank you to every one who left me a comment on my previous post about my friend Barbara's death. I have read and re-read each one and as today was her funeral they were all much appreciated. I travelled up to Wimbledon for the funeral and although I was dreading it, I was glad I went. It gave me the chance to say good bye properly. Her daughter is only 9 years old, and with maturity beyond her years she read out the most moving tribute to her Mum which reduced me to tears. I met another old school friend, Theresa. I last saw her when I was 11yrs old. We chatted about our lives now and friends from the past. We exchanged contact details, so I suppose the saying "when one door closes, another one opens" came true. We were the only two friends from primary school days but there were many friends from Barbara's work and her daughters' school as well as family.
