Dearest Lynette (and John),
see I remembered at last! Thank you for your letter I received today, I'm so glad you have some outside interests & can get a break. I haven't forgotten what it's like to be on your own with a little one, (had 2 babies under 2) during the war, but I did have Bob at weekends, but it wasn't until they started school, I could get away. I'm so thrilled to know you are coming soon, I'm counting the days now. I wonder what Eleanor will think of this strange old lady. I feel sad I've no home or garden for her I imagine her in my old garden running about. You are a wonderful gardener, you must have "green fingers". I too love Spring, we've had some lovely summery days, quite hot in fact. We now have a small conservatory, where I spend most of my time. She will be bewildered by all the travelling & changes but with her sunny nature I'm sure she'll cope. My pen is running out I shall ask John to bring me one or two I have others but they're the sort that need refills Take care, loads of love, see you soon
