Hi - Just received a rather wonderful delivery: a Partridge from Ocado, though rather weirdly it was attached to a miniature Pear Tree. Was that you? I’ve planted out the tree in the conservatory and roasted the partridge. I do think it’s a good idea for us to spend Christmas apart, despite everything. But it’s thoughtful of you to think of me all alone down here. xxxxxx

Amazing! Ocado was back again this morning! 2 ‘turtle doves’ from Waitrose, this time alive. Really, you need not have bothered. I wondered what you wanted me to do with them? I’m ashamed to say I let them out of their cage and they disappeared beyond the hedge at the end of the garden. Thinking of you, and how you are coping. xxxxx
