Hello folks- I'm back Ma happily introducing me to everyone as her sister, talking about 'our' father who has died and her mother who she hasn't seen for a long while, and her husband (meaning Bro) who works so hard. I took her a basket of trailing campanulas for her room and a box of chocs for Mother's Day - she thanked the carer for them
After the visit I popped down to the harbour and bought 3+lb of fresh line-caught cod (caught last night) for £10 - we'll have some for supper, the rest is in the freezer.
The journey home took longer than usual as we were stuck in a long queue then diverted due to a bad crash at Hales - a car and a lorry - there's a service station and a junction on a bend on the brow of a hill on a fast bit of road - presumably someone didn't see that another vehicle was turning off. Four people injured but according to the local news website I don't think anyone was killed. There were several ambulances and fire engines as well as the Norfolk air ambulance which had landed in a field - I couldn't see whether it was Prince William in the cockpit.
The sun was shining at Southwold, but the last part of the journey home was in heavy sleet.
Good morning, chilly but at least the predicted snow failed to arrive,.........
It's OK Lily P - it hasn't gone missing - we've got it almost a white-out here ate the moment
