Blue Frog

 Mrs Trellis has just left me the best of gifts on the kitchen wall .
It’s a plastic blue frog with his mouth open , wrapped in one of her ubiquitous red napkins.
The message, on yellow writing paper with it read simply “ Get Well Soon” and just in case I missed it , she has just left me a message on my answerphone saying that she had visited 
Well she left two actually ..
The message ended with “ He reminded me of you !” 

He’s a cheerful soul….
And I’ve placed him in my planter housing yellow daisies
He’s a water feeder ! 


 I’m just going to bed ( it’s 9.30pm) and Albert is licking the contents out of Dorothy’s Ears
It’s all go

    1. Consistently Mrs T has passed over some incredibly bizarre gifts over the years
      I rather like this one

  4. What a kind gesture, and yes, I can see what she means. It's the wide smile I think. PS I agree with Mrs. T, get well soon. That's an order! xx

    Don't know why I have suddenly come out as anonymous John (Weaver)

    1. Weaver, I’ve allowed anon comments because several anon commentators asked to comment via email

  9. You've left one Anon, but deleted Rachel's ... Was her's worse then the Anon one?
    The blue frog is a clever, yet useful, gift left by Mrs. T.
    Sounds like you may be feeling a bit better ... sleep is such a healer, so it's good you are getting lots of sleep!

  11. How kind of sweet Mrs Trellis. To the Egyptians, the frog was a symbol of life and fertility, since millions of them were born after the annual flooding of the Nile, which brought fertility to the otherwise barren lands.

  12. Well if that gift didn't make you feel better then I don't know what will!

  13. The blue frog is unique and it made me smile. Mrs. T. is very thoughtful. It cheered you too! I have to ask, how is Ruth? Hopefully, like you, she is fully vaccinated...just in case she comes down with C too.

  21. That frog is awesome! Albert and Dorothy crack me up, in a kind of disgusting way.
