Heavy wet snow has been falling since seven this morning (now half past ten) and when my Carer came she said that she would not have dared to take me for my vaccination this morning as the roads are so bad - so I was lucky to get it in yesterday. So far no ill effects at all, not even a sore arm. And the 'outing' did my confidence such a lot of good as I managed well and didn't feel tired when I got back home (and had the added bonus of a handsome young man helping me out of my chair after my enforced quarter of an hour wait after the shot - an ambulance man he had me up in no time from the chair which was too low to lever myself out on my Zimmer frame). At my age I have to get my 'thrills' as and when I can!
So what's new today? Well not a lot really. My Physiotherapist rang to say she has ordered me a trolley with brakes for by my chair since I had my second fall - I no longer dare to use the one I have after falling with it and not have a trolley with trays does inhibit my ability to transport meals back and forth.
The little hill opposite my bungalow is notoriously bad in this kind of weather. This morning I have watched vehicle after vehicle as they have struggled to get up and round the corner. Some, with careful management in the correct gear for the conditions , have managed it first time - others have struggled, ending up with resorting to the passenger/s getting out and spreading grit from the box provided by the side of the path and pushing. We are in full lockdown but this time round there seems to be no lessening of the traffic past my window and yet I understand that Covid has now well and truly reached our little town (last time round it didn't really get to visit us all that much).
Yesterday I ran out of bread. There is more coming with my Tesco order this afternoon. There are also sourdough crumpets coming with my order. Guess which I shall be having for my tea? I am beginning to take an interest in making dishes again and rather fancy celeriac and apple soup (Hairy Bikers made it on a programme I watched yesterday) - maybe when my trolley with brakes arrives I shall have a go. In the meantime - keep safe, keep warm and if you have snow and ice mind how you go.
