It is good to be able to write those words - so rarely these Covid days. This morning J, my Carer, came as usual at half past seven and brought me a Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding Sunday lunch to heat in the Microwave (I must say it was delicious). When she went at a quarter to nine I then settled down to do the Mind Games in The Times to give the old brain a bit of a work out. At 11.15 it was Book Group on Zoom (The Last Runaway by Tracy Chevalier) - five of us had almost two hours discussing this excellent book and we had all got plenty to say as we had all enjoyed it.
Then after my Roast Beef lunch, followed by a couple of slices of fresh pineapple (delicious and so cheap to buy) I had a walk down my road in really lovely weat her. The sun was out and for the first time there was a faint hint of Spring in the air (heavy snow is forecast for tomorrow). I have rarely been out since I broke my hip at the end of October because the weather has been too slippery so I must take every opportunity to exercise my legs.
Then my afternoon's rest during Escape to the Country and at four a Zoom with P and D in Windermere which took me to a quarter to five. Now reading posts and replying, then it will be getting my remaining soup from my soup maker for my tea and then a relax. It is good to be busy..
Quarter past five and only just getting dark - at last the nights are drawing out - it is February, the sun has shone all day and it was light at five o'clock. All's getting right with the world. Stay safe and enjoy your evening. See you tomorrow.
