Horrid day here - sunny one minute, pouring with rain the next, gale all the time. This means no walk out with Priscilla; too risky out in gale force winds. So it has been a long day livened up with an hour with my jolly Carer, a call from friends T and S with eggs for me and a new book to read. I am happy with the book - I have almost finished Elizabeth von Arnim and then need something new. Now I have it. Two or three phone calls lightened the atmosphere and several letters came in the post which needed an answer so I answered them straight away rather than putting them in my 'to do' file (note to self - always the best idea).
The upshot really is that my mind is a blank when it comes to writing to you all today - nothing has happened so I have nothing to comment on. Yes, the News has not all been about Covid, which would normally make a change, but not when it is all about the dreadful murder which has happened and which has shocked everyone so much. Our thoughts must be with her family now - surely destroyed for ever - apart from the young life taken in such terrible circumstances. And then there is even more about THE interview - publicity the couple have really got - day after day of it. How does the poor HM the Queen cope with it all I wonder.
Well dear friends. Tomorrow is another day - let's just hope it is a better one than today. Take care everyone.
