Thanks lily and Fairy. I have been lucky compared to the experiences of Fidget, Dove, yourself Fairy and Verdun and probably many more. The distance is a hurdle but you get to meet nice people like OL She's probably got he head in a suitcase at the moment
The main problem at the moment is that they will not accept that they need to get some help. Great neighbours have mown the lawn and taken Mum shopping but there is a limit to how far their goodwill stretches as none are particularly young themselves Still - time will tell - I'll keep chipping away.
Back to gardening - I would love to mix the soil here with mine and vice versa. Mine is heavy clay and theirs is sandy loam. I get waterlogged - they can't water enough.
