Today is the first day when it has really felt like Spring. For a start there is not a breath of wind and the sky up to half an hour ago was cloudless (now there are clouds gathering and it is not quite as warm as it was) My hair appointment is at nine thirty each Thursday so I was down in town in time for that and also to call at the Bank. Then I intended to treat myself to a coffee, met a friend and together we each had a bacon bap with our coffee. It felt very wicked; at 87 a good feeling to have I can assure you.
Back home I did the Times puzzles, which I do every day to keep my brain going and read the paper. Then I decided to do a walk round the estate - much too nice to sit at home although I felt rather tired after going round town earlier. One morning of warm sun and I saw - celandine, daisy, purple primroses, tiny iris, hellebore, wallflowers, crocus, snowdrops (almost over), tete a tete daffodils, heather and in one garden even one or two pinks out on a plant. In spite of all the worry over the coronavirus it did the old heart good to see how spring will out. Percy is certainly making a difference to my mobility.
Just before one o'clock another mobility aid arrived and it looks to be a very useful one at that.
The trays are detachable so it will be useful for serving coffee and cake when friends call.
And while we are on the subject of photographs, friend W took some photographs of me the other day, ostensibly for my application for the renewal of my blue Disability Parking Card. I thought you might like to see one of them she took - I am not smiling because one is supposed to be solemn in this sort of photograph!
Oh dear folks - the camera doesn't lie!!
