    Default Our next door neighbour

    Hi,
    As the title states our next door neighbours husband has nearly lost his fight to live. We don't know then very well as we only moved into this house in feb and they have been busy at the hospital for a lot of the time.
    I am want to do something wether it be buy a gift or help out but I am not sure how. I have a .5 year old and a 11 week old refluxy baby so something that's easy but meaning full. I don't want to get just a card and a bunch of flowers.
    Any ideas?

    That's really nice of you.

    What about a nice pot plant...

    Maybe some relaxing CDs , the ones with water or forests etc so the husband can have then played in the hospital.

    Some meals? Either home cooked or frozen so the wife doesn't have to think about meals....

    I was thinking a pot plant, she has a great green thumb so I think it would really suit her.

    I like the sound of a pot plant or some home cooked meals that you can freeze so they can simply just heat and eat .

    I think the meals is a good idea. Perhaps some nice teas, coffee etc with biscuits and some slices? Maybe some other basic grocery items?
