2015 (written 26 July 2015):
Yesterday was a really hard day. I was down in the pit and felt incapable of making the smallest decisions. Having written about efforts of will I didn’t want to make myself a liar by slinking back to bed so I went up to my parents’ house and helped them in their garden.
The Lady’s Mantle they wanted rid of has now all been dug up and my father taught me how to take cuttings from a fuchsia bush. Hopefully one day my cuttings will add a bit of colour to Lottie and Ailsa.
