A pleasant Hour, with my Neighbour.

Dear All,

I 'popped out', about Nine, to see if any of my Neighbours were about. Answer not really, except Matt had is Patio Door open, so I wandered along and knocked. Matt came to the Door "Oh hello 'mate', I haven't seem You in ages". I sat outside, on the chair opposite, as he had a cigarette- I used to smoke, and I'm NOT a Hypocrite. Afterwards, mainly because it started raining, he invited me In. A Very pleasant ensued, for about a hour.

Matt is a 'Kindly', and pleasant, sort of man and we 'clicked' as soon as we met. We discussed, one of our other neighbours, John, who died, about a year back now. We both agrred that we 'missed' him, again a 'good sort'. John was on Hemo-Dialysis, something that I know 'all about'- I was for four years, prior to my Transplant in July 2013.

It's always good, to Cach up, with friends and neighbours.

I make pesto from nettles. Nice anti-inflammatory.

I'm sure that Matt would been pleased that you knocked and would have enjoyed your company. Little things mean a lot at strange times such as these. Having kind and friendly neighbours is a blessing. I am blessed too. I hope you have a good day. Take care, keep safe.

There's nothing to replace human contact. Your little get together probably did a great deal vor your well being.


That's really good Andrew, it kind of lifts your spirits doesn't it. x
