It was Mr Life's retirement do today. They gave him a cake, some books and a cushion - which all feature engines or railways - and a cheque and some wine, which don't. And lots of cards, some train-related and some not.
And they gave me flowers, which was very nice, though I don't feel I've done anything to deserve them.
On Saturday, we had friends for the day - they brought roses.
And yesterday Daughter 1's lovely in-laws visited (hello, Nanny and Gramps) and they brought tulips.
