Some time ago, friend W (who is only a little younger than I am) announced that she really was going to cut down on what she was doing. I thought this a good idea and followed suit. Has it worked?
Certainly it hasnt worked if today is an example. This morning it was 'Strugglers' - a group of us (anything from half a dozen to around ten) meet in the Quaker Meeting House for an hour and a half of quiet contemplation and a time when any of us can talk about anything we wish to talk about and discuss. Sometimes this is a jolly meeting and sometimes it is sombre. What it always is is a support group through thick and thin.
Four of us went out to lunch afterwards - just across the Square. (a prawn baguette with salad for me). Then I went home to make a meal in my Remoska - a sausage, red onion and apple casserole (half for my tea this evening, the other half for the freezer) and a snooze on the settee. Friend W went on a hospital visit twenty miles away. This evening we both went to two hour ukulele practise.
I have come in pretty exhausted. Can't imagine how tired W must be. In other words - neither of us is sticking to our resolution. How much work should us eighty year olds be doing? I have also had three walks with Tess - albeit fairly short. Off to bed. Good night all.
