It's a beautiful day today. The sun is shining, fluffy white clouds are scudding across the sky and the temperature is encouraging. So encouraging that I felt the urge to go and do a bit of work in the sadly neglected garden.
I mowed the lawn, tidied up the few plants we have, brushed the patio, as I did last year and the year before.
But this time, there is no Lucy pottering around behind me, flopping down on the patio, watching my every move.
I sat on the bench and listened to the birds, felt the warmth of the sun and thought of Lucy.
