    I'm lucky, there are 4 supermarkets near me all just outside the limit for exercise, saves me a fortune...

    At last, an opportunity to grab a picture of St Peter's where it's not surrounded by parked cars!

    Actually, after I put it on Flickr, I had a go at it (in PSE11)...

    It doesn't look too bad up to about 1000p wide. But really doesn't add that much.

    The magnolia in my garden was in full bloom the other day and such a spectacle of colour and smell.

    The daily photo challenge of stationery made me look back in letter box files in the end. It struck me how important to some of receiving a letter is. I'm sharing this one because it was so special to me. My mum died when I was 10. We never had the time to share everything and she wasn't around to guide me. After my dad died, fairly young at 64, I started trying to find out what had happened to my mum's relatives and a bit about her background. It was hard going as they are scattered around the globe, since her family travelledwidely and settled in other countries. However, this very special letter arrived after I wrote a plea in a NE Scotland paper for info from anyone who knew or remembered her. It did put me in contact with a second cousin, who helped a little bit but was difficult to draw out on details. Then I got this letter. It is most special to me and at last I felt a connection.

    So never underestimate the power of a letter as well as a photo. They are precious reminders.

    It wasn't just mine!

    There's even less now. I've just given my mum a 1/4 (left at a socially acceptable distance for her).

    I still can't seem to get any flour, and after seeing your rather splendid cake, I dont think I deserve any either
