When I called for her in the afternoon she presented me with these:
They were totally unexpected, not to mention a beautiful splash of much welcome colour in a currently very dull, grey world and they lifted my spirits immeasurably. I didn't think I could have been cheered any more than that until I opened the attached card. Mrs B had composed the following poem in my honour:
If you are feeling down and blue,
Don't because winter's almost through.
It soon will be warm and sunny,
Everything will again look funny.
We can wear our summer dresses,
And let down our tresses.
So don't be blue,
Because I am pleased
to have a friend like you.
And extremely honoured I am, hence this post. I've already blogged that 2011 seems to be looking like they year of the friend and this story only compounds my feeling and the fact that I have a wonderful friend in Mrs B. Thanks J! x
