Young Michael's birthday, so put his card through early today. I walked to town and saw young Steven in the greengrocers. He has grown into a nice lad. Tried to get a refill of No 7 compost but could
only get loose powder £1.35. So Expensive, but I consoled myself with the thought that it will last!!
Cliff very good, digging to sink new posts in where the fence fell down. Very hard
work, it's a shame Len really must not help because of his hands.
Lovely day today. Len in his boiler suit, pottering all day.
Me: This entry, from February 1980, reminds me of how very good Mum's next door neighbours, Cliff and Rene, were to her and my Dad over many years. It also brought into my mind the clearest picture
of Dad, in his boiler suit, pottering about in his beloved garden. How could I have forgotten that boiler suit?!
