On 17 July 2020, I was a couple of weeks in to my first round of chemo. I was blogging everyday on Facebook, still feeling not to bad, still had hair!
I had a massively overgrown garden - combo of chemo and suregery and breaking my arm the previous year - so got a man in to do it.
After 5 failed attempts, I found this one...
The mad gardener is coming today and I need to make an offering of tea (milk, two-and-a-half sugars, did you run out of sugar luv?!) every hour or he talks at me. Sainsburys delivery is therefore happening before he arrives, or I have no milk.
F1* Make him a flask and lock the door
Brilliant yo yoxx
So funny ! Gardening accidents gone wrong !!!!!
Here's one to regale him with.....our gardener doesn't do ladders anymore......not since he hurt his ankle when he fell off doing something to a hedge or something and collided with a small wall beneath. and 2) whilst messing with the garage door it entirely came off its attachment at the side and nearly decapitated him. Hasn't touched it since. Unfortunately he now has cancer of the thyroid but does not want to know any details of what this may entail, so difficult to help him. He asked me what the thyroid was though, so that's a start.......whereas I feel I need to know everything about mine in order to deal with it right.
That's made me smile. Thank you for sharing your interaction with an obviously socially inept gardener!
