An orchid. I wanted to thank one of my neighbours for recommending a painter to me and bought her an orchid and she was thrilled. Another neighbour had her 90th birthday so I bought her one to and was told that it is a very special flower to give.

Thank you.


I find it difficult because she seems to have everything and she gives me so much even gave me a set of lovely warm sheets for winter, new and unopened, when they buy veg from the veg market there is always a huge bag for me, she always tidies up outside and does my front too and even touches up the white paint when she does hers. She is a fabulous neighbor.

It's top secret, sorry

How can you repay someone like that though?

Other things she has given me, all new, are throw overs for the settee, fabulous table cloths, if she sees me doing any kind of jobs she always comes in and takes over, or gets me the correct tools, she brings me pans of hot stew I could go on, she really is a star. She deserves a medal really lol. She says it's lovely to have a neighbor again.

Crikey, I'd give her my kids (if I had any)

Seriously, it's really lovely to have such a neighbour. We have a chap who is always giving us stuff too. We try and give him home made stuff like marmalade, lemon curd, biscuits and the like. But your lady truly deserves more.

She might just think you have a scruffy house, can't cook and incompetent !!
Just joking, lucky you

I think that the best thing about your neighbour is that she does not do it for what she can get out of you but for the sheer joy of giving, whether that is her time or items, she obviously likes having you around and shows you.
