A Perfect Rose
Last time I was in hospital for the big infusion, the I'm terminal! lady 'M' (who I hasten to add is NOT at all terminal) also went on about flowers.
M said: As soon I was diagnosed, everyone sent me flowers.
So far so good...
She continued: They sent me huge bouquets! In vases and everything. All colours, all types. You've never seen so many flowers.

How lovely! We other three cooed...
M looked at us, stone faced: I threw every last one in the bin! Reminded me of funerals!
Rest assured I am not one for throwing flowers in the bin for any reason, and if anything, I'm guilty of trying to keep them for too long!
This week is the first week since diagnosis I've been without any fresh flowers. The last lot was a bunch of beautiful blood red roses from my brother-in-law, but sadly their time is passed. There was only one thing for it - buy some more!
So these are the ones I bought. I think I fell for the colours.
The Blue-Berry Muffin Cake also turned out brilliantly, although if you have a sweet tooth, add more sugar. We got the recipe from here.
(but add more sugar if you have a sweet tooth!)
