My husband had an appointment at our GP Surgery, with the nurse this morning so they could check his wound; I went with him. The stitches are still in the wound, they are absorbable, but it is looking good and can be seen here if you want to look.
We suffered very little damage from Storm Doris, some felt had blown off the shed roof, some flowerpots had blown around and some garden furniture had blown over. However the roads were grid locked by overturned lorries and trees down; the trains were not running so Victoria could not get home from college. Her father picked her up from her college on the Addenbrookes Hospital site as well as some of her friends who were also stranded; it then took four hours to do less than twenty miles! Oliver was also on his way home from college in Cambridge, he goes one day a week, he was stuck on the M11 for quite a while, he was almost at junction nine, which had been open and then closed again. They were all home by 2100 hours.
Although I took a lot of Spring flower pictures today I chose this one as it is a complete contrast to yesterday’s weather. There is also some mistletoe growing in the tree in the centre, I saw it last year and was not sure whether it was mistletoe or a bird’s nest.
