So far, as Rachel has let me know this morning, Cro is missing from my new blog list. So sorry my son missed you Cro. I have tried to put you on this morning but sadly my shaking is so bad this morning that I can't manage it. Rest assured that as soon as he finishes today's on line teaching I shall contact him and ask him to reinstate you. I can't do without my daily dose of your delicious meals and what is growing well at Haddocks.
I finished 'A Bike Ride' by Anne Mustoe last evening. It was recommended to me by S, who lives on the Isle of Man. I have enjoyed every word and do recommend it to anyone who likes travel books. Anne did the ride in the late eighties/early nineties after resigning as Headmistress of a Boarding School. She was 54, overweight and out of condition (she says) and wobbled because cycling was unfamiliar. As a Classicist she gives us a ride round the World - the highs and lows of the actual ride and a short history of Classical times as she does it. I see she also wrote two more travel books afterwards. Looking her up I see that on her last ride she was taken ill in Syria and died in hospital in Aleppo. What a wonderful way to go.
My new bloglist is interesting. With the exception of dear Cro I think all my familiar friends have been transferred. But as I said last evening, if my son has missed anyone else please let me know as soon as you realise and I will get my son to add you on.
It was a lovely sunny afternoon yesterday but there is much more cloud today and I guess it is cold out there. Nevertheless I am now going to put on my coat and hat and walk round the block. I will hopefully add more later in the day so am putting this on hold.
Thank you to Rachel who sent me clear instructions on how to add blogs to my list - it is so long since I added anyone I had forgotten how. I added Cro in a second with no problem. We couldn't manage without his daily dose could we?
Nothing else to add today - cool weather, a long(for me) walk, a nice chat to a neighbour, several phone calls and now it is tea time. Until tomorrow......
