Yes, it is Spring, although looking out of the window , it is hard to believe. When I started typing this the sun was out (and the April sun has some warmth in it) - then I had a short phone call, now it is snowing. But isn't that always the way with our Springs? Hasn't it always been a case that people with Magnolia trees or fruit trees in their gardens have been anxiously peering up into them at sundown and again in the early morning? And so I tell myself not to worry - but it doesn't altogether stop me doing so.
What to write about today? Well not a lot has happened really. I am saddened to see that one or two people who object strongly to horse racing have vowed they will not read my blog again because I enjoyed the Grand National. That is their choice. I try to keep off Politics and controversial subjects as far as I canfor precisely that reason but occasionally I say something or do something which offends some people. For that I apologise. But if I stopped blogging with everyone who had views with which I disagreed there would be no one left - and believe me when I say that blogging is a huge part of my life. Now that I can't walk unaided and, in any case because of Covid restrictions can't go out - like everyone else - then it is even truer that your daily 'chat' is brilliant and keeps me going. So thank you most sincerely for that.
The sun is out again, the sky is blue, I shall go and make myself some cheddar and red onion chutney sandwiches and a cup of tea for my tea (lamb chops with mashed potatoes, carrots, kale and mange tout for lunch (made and brought by my carer) followed by a banana and a couple of small sweet oranges - and then I shall go and finish reading the Sunday Telegraph. Enjoy your Sunday evening. See you tomorrow.
