    My thoughts and prayers are with you and Alan. Congratulations on your Wedding anniversary. When I met you in Ghent it was obvious that you both loved each other, and I must admit that I fell in love with Alan as it was clear to see his courage and generosity of spirit. You are both such wonderful adverts of what makes a successful marriage.
    As to the lack of visits from former colleagues I believe that they don't know how they will cope, not that is a good enough reason as they should put your needs above their fears.
    If I was nearer I would visit, but be sure you are both very much in my thoughts and prayers.

    I want to thank you for introducing me to the wonderful poem of Dylan Thomas.
    In my ignorance I had to look it up on the internet.It brought me to tears & memories were reignited.
    I hope you had a happy day today together. Wish I was able to visit. Just remember that we are here to listen & care.
    Lots of love Jean xxxx

    Thanks Jean, glad you appreciate the poem which isn't surprising as you are a woman who appreciates the Arts. X At least no one has noticed gently instead of gentle. I should pay more attention to what comes up on screen. I don't know how to correct it, not that it matters.

    Spring turns into summer and I have filled the deck with hanging baskets and pots. I have to confess that they have been bought preplanted but they make colourful display that suoergramps can see from his chair or his bed. He was always a keen gardener and over the years we had a fantastic vegetable patch and grow bags filled with all sorts and many hanging baskets and pots everywhere. I've just done what
    I can. He's had a bad time lately and during Roland Garros seemed to be changing. He no longer goes to the day centre as he was having bad days there and in the first and second week of the French Open had phone calls telling me he wasn't very good. He was coming home totally exhausted, being brought out of the bus with his head almost touching his knees. He sleeps far more now but still has his good days..............

    I tell him I have the chance of a ticket for the final thanks to Roy and would love to go if Andy reaches the final. Bless him he says you must go, you deserve it. It wasn't to be. I tell him I am going to Wimbledon on the first day with Pam though I keep forgetting to inform him of the cost. I'll probably keep forgetting!! His speech is getting worse and we both get upset when I can't tell what he's saying. It's not all the time but most of the time now. I kiss and hug him and he clings to me. A couple of afternoons I have lowered the bed rails and I lie down next to him with his arm around me. He falls asleep and so do I. He asks me when can he go back upstairs to bed and I tell him I'm not sure, it might be a while. It is breaking my heart.
