The front garden appears to be grass but it’s actually nothing like a lawn and I need to just pull, cut and dig in some new plants. I dug in some star lilies and Astrantia but there was lots of grass, moss and spiky hawthorn-type twigs and rowan trees creeping in. I don’t want much to stay and I probably need to rotavate it a bit because a lot of unwanted shrubs are increasing dramatically. Lots of alliums planted last year are coming up and some things I have planted are starting to make an impact on the space. It’s yellow and blue in the main at the moment and will turn purple in May hopefully.
I had a trip to Addenbrookes this morning and my session with my MS nurse was very positive: I managed not to blub so I am feeling a bit more in control. She set me some targets but it was fabulous to have a positive appointment for once in this difficult year. It was a bit mucked up by administrative glitches but that was only a computer error, so no point being grumpy about it. Computer glitches and missing cohorts made my working afternoon a little bit of a nightmare but we all got it sorted and my drive home at five-thirty on Friday was not as bad as it could have been!
