And not all that warm with it. It is cloudy and 'almost' drizzly and what is more it is cold. Certainly not May weather - I am still wearing many layers and have just been on my constitutional wearing many layers and also woolly gloves. But I have walked and that is the important thing - I absolutely must do it every day. My son and his wife called - it is my daughter in law's birthday today - her birthday treat so far was to be driven down to the Medical Central to have her blood tests.
What to write about today. I was so pleased with everyone's response yesterday - so many different opinions. It almost feels like sitting in a room with you all and having a wonderful discussion (I won't say argument).
What seems to be headline news today is the sudden Upsurge of the new Covid variant which so far it seems may or may not be the Indian variant, may be more likely to attack teenagers, doesn't appear to make anyone seriously ill. And then there is Foreign Travel - on or off. And that brings me to another thing. The word Staycation - do I assume it has been specially coined to imply a mixture of 'stay at home' and 'vacation' - clever. I lay in bed thinking of one or two other similarly coined special words but by the time I came to write this several hours later I can't remember a single one. Feel free to compile a list.
I am trying hard to have a day when I don't think about all the terrible things in the world, about all the problems in the Royal Family (which are on the front page of The Times. Why can't they let the poor people get on with their lives without publicising their every hiccup?) I could go on but that is just bringing them to the forefront of my mind and no- not today. I shall think instead of going and getting my lunch, pottering in the garden with Priscilla (weather permitting), watching 'Escape to the Country' and 'Antiques Road Trip' and then it will be time for tea. See you tomorrow.
