By 7pm, I started to be concerned. Around 8:20pm, a call to my mobile demonstrated a reluctance for the deliverer to come that night despite my putting forward some options to assist. When asked if it was my Birthday, I replied that I was marking the Anniversary of my husband's death. This seemed to lead to an assurance of delivery. There was a period of time before my roses arrived with a Condolence offered by the delivery man.
I have learned to plan ahead next time and ask for delivery the day before. Another widow in my Block shares the same Anniversary date with me and I always like to include her in my memorial flowers. I was concerned that she may already have gone to bed but managed to share with her. Any recommendation I make, will be qualified to think carefully about when you want blooms!
