A Visit, Eggs and Feathers

19 May

One of our very dear friends came by today now that we are allowed to meet outside. We spent a very happy couple of hours in the garden. N brought with her some wonderful gifts and a pile of beautiful story books for us to borrow to read over Skype to our three year old LiveWire twins in Barcelona.

There were freshly laid eggs, two of which which we will have for breakfast and freshly dug new potatoes which we have enjoyed this evening.

N also brought me some delicate feathers for a very special purpose. I have a wonderful collection of Samantha Bryan’s fairies (Did you know all fairies have to learn to fly?) and a couple of them have disintegrating wings! They were made of skeleton leaves which are not as long lasting as feathers which many of my fairies have. We are going to try to replace the leaves with feathers – after getting advice from the maker herself.

That was a very precious few hours as we haven’t seen each other for almost three months and at the beginning of that time, N suffered with C19 and we were so very worried. It was just wonderful to see her properly again not just on a screen even if we couldn’t hug.

    What a special day! Interesting that you are “allowed” to get together outside. So many Americans–although they are the minority–think it’s a violation of their constitutional rights to be told to stay inside, wear masks, social distance, etc. What a relief it must be that your friend N has recovered from C19.

      Absolutely, a huge relief – and it was so good to be able to spend time together albeit 2mtres apart! πŸ™‚

    I can imagine, how precious it was to see your friend in person, even with a distance. It is just different than via screen.

      It was so lovely to be able to see each other properly and to be able to hear her voice – real joy! πŸ™‚
