.....is that we get one nice, Spring-like day and then a succession of chilly, Wintry days. Hopefully the former get more and the latter less towards the end of the month - but not much of a sign yet. Today it is cold, wet and windy and a giant black cloud hangs above my window. Spring flowers get more and more in the gardens but the weather doesn't encourage them - it is more likely to be the daylight hours.
I have had a busy day today - I like it like that but am pleased now to be in, the central heating turned up again and everywhere cosy and warm. This morning the lady from Physiotherapy came to take my blood pressure (up slightly) and discuss exercises to help my balance (she is now going to come once a month to do the exercises and to give me a diary to record each day when I do them). After that I went with friend W to a half hour of quiet at the Quaker Meeting House - very therapeutic - and then out to lunch (broccoli quiche with new potatoes and salad) followed by an hour's Keep Fit for the over sixties. Took friend W home, came home, turned up the central heating and am now going to settle down for the evening.
Are we in for a surge in Coronavirus cases here in the UK? Probably. Who knows. All I know is that we must follow Department of Health guidelines, wash our hands, not get too near people and not shake hands. There is nothing else we can do short of shutting ourselves away from civilisation. I suppose I fall into that age group 'at risk' - (ie being over eighty) but there is not a lot I can do about that is there.
Life seems to be going on as normal up here, but then there has been no reported case up here yet - I suspect things might change if or when that happens. In the meantime the cafe where we had our lunch was as full as usual (and the food just as good) and we all keep soldiering on. Take care.
