Sadly I have had to ask one of my carers not to come any more. We are at the stage of discussing about cutting down on how often they come. I really must learn to be independent again. But asking her to stop coming was prompted by the fact that she also goes into our local care home and there two members of staff have tested positive although her test came back negative. I just cannot take the risk at this point in my recovery. I am sad to have to say goodbye to her - she had become a real friend.
So I am coping alone in the evenings. Last night was the first night and I coped well. When I get my 'hostess trolley' with brakes I shall cope even better.
All traces of snow have gone although there was a frost this morning. Now, at a quarter to twelve, the sun is shining in a bright blue sky. As usual I watched the thousands of rooks fly over from their rookery at day break as I ate my toast and then - joy of joys - a - huge skein of geese flew over heading West. Not sure what that means weather wise but it was a sight for sore eyes.
Isn't it strange what a day of sunshine can do? It is not the middle of January yet and yet Spring is in the air today. Tomorrow a band of snow is promised to cross us - that will drive away all thoughts of Spring - so I shall make the most of today.
Having finished my Book Group book (brilliant) I have now started another - 'Where the Crawdads Sing' by Delia Owens. It is another book about America and about the 'marsh girl' - fascinating stuff and top of the best seller list at the moment.
I shall now go and microwave my roast beef and yorkshire pud which my carer brought me this morning for my lunch. Then I shall have a walk with Priscilla. Have a good day.
