Later, with the storm winds blowing at 50+ m.p.h. and the pelting rain bouncing off the Prebendal School red umbrella that she struggled to hold aloft, a cheerful Jan wandered round the garden, determined to photograph the plants she had got to know through WordPress. Negotiating the various arches was managed most adroitly, despite the danger of taking to the air like Mary Poppins.
I, of course, lurked with camera,
trying not to look too closely at further damage.
Later, Jan, De, and Jackie enjoyed ‘Miss Potter’ on Netflix, and after one of Jackie’s splendid cold meats and salad lunches, the others all went shopping while I amused myself with WordPress and administration.
‘As Good As It Gets’ was the next Netflix fix, after which we dined on Jackie’s most flavoursome sausages in red wine; creamy mashed potatoes and suede; firm carrots, cauliflower and broccoli; and tender runner beans. Bruce Jack Sauvignon Blanc 2021, Apothic Californian red wine 2019, and 1000 Stories Zinfandel 2018 were consumed.
