Sometimes I despair of the human race and every now and then I can be blown away by the kind and thoughtfulness that we can show to each other. Friday I had a blown away moment when the postman arrived with a parcel for me and I opened it to see my little shadow looking up at me Dolly. Beth and Neil who's family have Albey (who is Dolly's Grandson) had sent me this lovely painting they had commissioned their daughter Heather to do for me. Heather is truly gifted how she has managed to catch Dolly's essence in her painting, it was rather emotional seeing such a lifelike likeness of her looking up at me and my little shadow now sits on the sideboard watching over the comings and goings. Thank you so much for your kindness and giving me something that we will cherish.
