“On the doorstep” - very near to where you live.

I had some work to do for the Order of Service for next Sunday, when I am leading, so after that was done, it was time for a cup of coffee and a sit in the garden with Mr. HCB, who had been working out there for most of the morning.

It was beautiful in the sun, but when the wind blew, it was quite chilly, but despite that, it was still very pleasant sitting out there - and this was my view - and of course, very near to where I live!  I have put a coloured version in as an extra, so that you can enjoy it too.

Mr. HCB has planted the two acer trees we bought in Lincolnshire, and which will remind us of the good time we had, and the pot at the front is an old strawberry pot that our next door neighbour, Lynn, gave us because she no longer had any use for it.  This has now been planted with rockery plants, and is looking good.

It was great to go away and enjoy the company of friends, but it's also good to be back at home and to see how our garden is growing, and of course, to enjoy sitting out there.

I now need to go to the library to take back the book I borrowed a while ago, "The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning" - I couldn’t renew it again because it's been reserved - sounds like others are getting in on the act!

“Death cleaning is not about 
     dusting or mopping up; 
          it is about a permanent form of organisation 
               that makes your everyday life 
                    run more smoothly.”
