After a week of singing my praises about how my walking was improving every day and how I was managing to walk that bit further each day suddenly today I came up against a brick wall. I found my walk jolly hard going; so much so that I had to cut it short and go back on a shorter circuit than usual. Even that was a struggle. There could be two reasons for this - one it is a colder day and two there is quite a strong wind blowing. Whatever the reason I shall not be going for a little top up after tea as I have been doing. I have just turned the heating up a notch and when I have finished this I shall draw the blinds along the back of the bungalow (which faces North) and shut out the end of the day, which is cloudy anyway.
I came in, made myself a cup of tea and thought about lunch. Obviously I needed a sustaining lunch (I had porridge sweetened with honey for breakfast)but couldn't be bothered to do much. Then I remembered cold new sliced potatoes in a basin in the fridge - so I had it! Fried new potatoes (lots!) with a small tin of Heinz beans in tomato sauce, four slices of fried streaky bacon and a fried egg. It was delicious!!
Friend W called with a magazine I hadn't read so easy reading after tea. We had a pleasant socially distanced chat (she didn't come inside) about what we had been reading, then I came onto my blog, wrote it, pressed the wrong button and the whole thing disappeared as if by magic - hence the gap but at least the title is apt.
Walking round earlier in the day I got to thinking about our circle of bloggers. Of course there are many more but I can't begin to tell you all how grateful I am for our little circle. I feel we have been friends for so long and i look forward to our chat most days. Do please continue- it is one of the few bright sparks during this awful Covid and I thank you all most sincerely.
