Yes, I'm afraid so. I can no longer call myself 'middle aged'. I have to face up to facts and I can no longer even stand unaided - I need some kind of support to stop me wobbling and falling over. But keep going? Yes I shall do that as long as I can. I have been advised by my Physio not to get an electric 'scooter/wheel chair in order to get around. I would be able to get from A to B in one but there would still be the problem of walking when I got to B and that I couldn't do without Priscilla. Added to which, being forced to walk with Priscilla keeps my legs moving and that is so important.
So, with this in mind Priscilla and I went early this morning for our walk 'round the block'. It has got nicer as the day has gone on. It was cloudy, but now bright sunshine, so we shall shortly go out into the back garden and sit in the sun for a while with my book (Michael Palin's 'Sahara' for the third reading - and am enjoying it just as much third time round.)
What do people do who don't garden and don't read? I am sure there are other hobbies (golf?) but I would find life very dull without books. I love the way Sue in Suffolk searches out the books she wishes to read and orders them from the Library. Librarians love people like Sue - it makes life interesting for them rather than just the boring day to day usual things.
The News about Covid in India is dreadful and the scenes from there are quite terrifying. We must all hope that it is not a new virulent strain which will sweep through again. It is feeling so good to be gradually emerging from the long period of Lockdown. I wonder whether we will feel able to go back to being exactly how we were before Covid struck or will some things have changed for ever? Time will tell.
