Neighbouring

Renee is gradually- oh so gradually- clearing her house with a view to moving in with her new fella. The other day we benefited to the tune of three straggly house plants. Today we received a little stack of framed postcards.

We've been neighbours for nearly twenty five years and I think I've been in her house twice. Once when she was ill and I called her an ambulance,  a second time when she needed a light bulb changing.  For years she was afraid of us because we were witches.

I lent her the electric clippers at the weekend so she and the fella could trim back the backyard and for that I scored a couple of cuttings from her fuschia.
