This afternoon I wrote Gladys' Flower Show speech supervised by a very talkative and very on the ball Auntie Gladys.
" I've had a woman from social services come around this afternoon " she told me " she came around to see if I was looking after myself...to see if I was eating"
I pretended I didn't know of the visit and said " oh yes? ...what did she find Gladys?"
" I 'll tell you what she found" Gladys said with a somewhat satisfying laugh " she found me eating a full chicken dinner in a gleaming kitchen that's what she found"
