With the help of friend W and my son I am trying to set up a Zoom connection and W and I , together with other friends were to have our first virtual coffee morning but I failed miserably in my efforts to join up. Hopefully later in the day we shall have a post mortem and things will be resolved. I am not all that computer literate and at times like this it shows.
The same thing happened with my Supermarket orders (luckily I have other sources) but my son sat up until midnight last night and managed to book me another slot towards the end of the month - so I now have two slots this month and that will do me nicely. It is things like fresh fruit and vegetables that I run out of.
The weather is set to turn warmer tomorrow and I just can't wait, don't know about you? My garden seems to be anticipating the sunshine because this morning there is a definite perking up of plants - so much so that I think after lunch I may well go out and give the patio a good sweep.
Thelma (North Stoke) speaks today of finding happiness in small things and I do agree. Life seems to have been pared down to essentials. I thought this when my son rang this morning before I had showered. I stood in the window chatting to him in my dressing gown. A man from higher up the road passed with his Labradoodle, looked up and waved. I don't think we have ever spoken before but there was something very pleasing about making a simple contact.
It is three weeks today since I went anywhere other than a walk round the block with Percy (and that only on still days as Percy does not care for the wind) -most of the time I am just not missing going out - I begin to think that it will be difficult to pick up where I left off. Time will tell.
