It was Carl's turn to join me outside. The main reason for the visit was to get me a new supply of my regular tablets in my local pharmacy. As a bonus he brought over some much-needed gardening tools, a packet of shop-bought biscuits and extra shortbread (yummy!) made by his mum. We sipped our gins and chatted safe-distantly for a very enjoyable few hours, after which he headed back cross-city.
Shortly before he left we noticed how wonderfully the late afternoon sun was lighting up one of my garden plants. Blip sorted.
