Yes, you've guessed it. The Sun! Grey,bleak days and then suddenly the sun comes out and it is altogether a different day out there. The patio could do with a good sweep and there are three herbaceous geraniums waiting there on the garage window sill to be planted but it is not inviting out there with a cold North wind blowing - but then the sun comes out - so maybe I will go out there when I have written my today's post.
The birds are definitely nesting in my garden hedge. A dunnock keeps darting and out and further along a blackbird. It's a good thick hedge with plenty of cover so I hope both succeed and that the babies emerge to a warmer world than today.
Shopping is becoming a problem because it is nigh on impossible to get a delivery slot from Tesco. My last slot is on April 10th and after that there is nothing - I am told that the only way to secure a slot is to go on to the site at midnight, which is when they put their next day deliverly slots on - and they are snapped up rapidly. I just can't face staying up until that time so I am having to rely on the kindness of friends and neighbours.
I haven't looked at the News at all today - I have become saturated with it all - without listening I am fully aware of the seriousness of the situation, I am grateful for the friendships which are keeping me going, I am grateful for my son and his wife who ring up daily to see if I need anything, and I am grateful to all my blogging friends - we are riding along on the crest of the wave of our bloggy friendships aren't we? And long may it continue until all this is over and we can get back to normal. Take care.
