All the days are merging into one now that I have absolutely nothing going on to mark the days out. I suspect most of us are the same. At least the sun is shining even if the wind is cold - imagine if all this had coincided with that awful long spell of wet days we had and that terrible flooding (and spare a thought for all those people who were flooded not so long ago and must be coping with the virus and the cleaning up - what a dreadful few months it has been).
When I drew back the curtains in my bedroom this morning the sun was well up and a lone bumble bee was having a slow mosey round my garden - the hellebores, the wallflowers and then off to have a quick look at the Chindoxia before soaring up over the wall into the field. There is a cold wind blowing but it was warm enough for a bee to be around and that did me good.
Now we are almost banned from going out except in certain special circumstances. I think this is the right move because people can be so silly. Up here at the moment food delivery is not easy - people are more than willing to help but in many cases there are just empty shelves. I am well ahead with my food supplies so am not worried but it is another thing to have to worry about and I could certainly do without it.
I am still reading Michael Palin's 'Sahara' first published in 2002 and I guess probably to accompany a TV series (which I don't remember being on and certainly didn.t see) -and I am really enjoying it. It is so well written and given my love of travel books (I sometimes think I am a better armchair traveller than a 'real' traveller) Palin makes every place he visits come alive with little pictures he paints of situations or characters.
Just about time for another chapter before bed I think - so until tomorrow. Take care every one of you.
