Have you noticed how, if you have regular appointments at the same time each week, the weeks seem to fly by? Thursday at 1pm is my Hairdresser (I cannot remember the last time I washed my own hair - I hate doing it). This means an early lunch (meals are very regular here on the farm, so that the farmer knows what time to come in- his mother trained him well).
After that I usually do a little shopping in our little market town - stocking up on bits and pieces so that all I have to do tomorrow is to buy my fruit and vegetables from the market after our weekly coffee jaunt (another thing to make things go quickly through the week).
Then, at half past four a gang of us are off the see 'Best Exotic Marigold Hotel', I think that all but one of us has seen it before - but it has such a 'feel good factor' we thought we would go and see it again. Do we imagine ourselves in that kind of situation? I suspect we do a bit. Well - we can all dream you know.
All these things serve to shut out the awful world situation. I can't do anything about it (except despair) so best to get on with life - although it is not enough.
My friends S and D finish their Land's End to John O'Groats walk today; they have been walking since May 18th and are to be congratulated on finishing. Photographs if and when I receive them.
