The days drift by. I suspect that during these strange times I am seeing more folk than most of you are. Carers and professional NHS people dash in and out and I am able to do more for myself as the days go by so not sure how much longer I shall need them. I certainly dare not have a shower in the house alone yet.
As I type this the rain has stopped and a weak sun has emerged This year, more than ever before, I have been suitably placed to observe the trajectory of the sun - it rises at the left of my sitting room window, crosses low in the sky and sets at the right of the same window. And now, sitting at my computer ina window at the back of the house I see that only the top quarter of the garden gets the sun in the winter. I have been told to take two vitamin D tablets every day - chew them (they are not pleasant) and don't forget. Maybe the plants could do with it too.
As I sit here the sky has completely cleared and is a beautiful, quite deep blue - I do hope we are destined for another nice day - the forecast for the weekend is pretty dire - snow at our height I believe.
Priscilla sits in the garage awaiting her first 'stroll' - and I wait for the delivery of a step and handrails so that I can reach her. I do rather crave a breath of fresh air and tend to stand with the door open now and then. My carer put all my recycling rubbish out for me last evening and the men collected it very early this morning ; isn't it a good feeling when you know it has all gone?
I hear on the News this morning that this year The Queen is breaking with a long tradition and not going to Sandringham but going instead to Windsor Castle for Christmas. Showing a good example I am sure as so many people will be tempted to break the rules won't they? So many people have a traditional Christmas where whole families congregate together - I can't help feeling that some members of these families will be glad of an excuse to have a change this year.
Get your vitamin D today if you possibly can! See you tomorrow.
