Today saw a laughable situation. Friend W has persuaded me to try and learn the ukulele so that I can join her ukulele orchestra. I am giving it a go and we arranged a first lesson - I thought at her house and she thought here. So for half an hour or so we sat at one another's houses waiting. She rang me on my new smart phone, but it was my first call on it and I didn't recognise the ring - I thought it was a car alarm - also when it rang I was just crossing the Panda crossing and by the time I got back to my car it had stopped. All was well that ended well and the first lesson taught me a couple of basic chords - I shall now practise in 10 minute stints.
After that we drove the short distance to Wensley village to have a delicious lunch in The Three Horseshoes pub. Then it was back for me to have a manicure. Little treats for myself are making me feel a bit more upbeat about myself in these first difficult days.
It is still very cold here although quite sunny. It is certainly still winter woollies time.
