I am very much enjoying The Olympic Games - along with Sue. She in her house in Suffolk and me here in Yorkshire. It is the first thing I do when I get up in the morning and I watch until my carer comes. All the way from Tokyo to my breakfast table. I never cease to marvel.
Some people, including my son, do not think they should have been held considering the incidence of Covid in Japan at present and apparently the fact that the majority of Japanese were against them going ahead because of this.
I weigh this up against the months and now years these young people have spent honing their skills and putting their everything in to striving for a medal in the Games. Do you have a view on whether they should have gone ahead or not? If so I would love to hear your point of view.
In other events this week end, we have had one or two heavy downpours and the gardens are looking better for it. It hasn't just been a shower it has come down in a sheet, flooding the roads for five minutes or so and then it has passed over and the sun has appeared again. 'Good growing weather' as my old Dad would have said.
L, a local lady, does a bit of local shopping for me between supermarket deliveries. She has just brought me Bananas, oranges and strawberries, together with two kinds of biscuits (the Book Group meeting is here as usual on Monday ('Never Let me Go' by Ishiguro - not the most cheerful of books)I shall now go and prepare the strawberries for my tea. Care to join me - they are Scottish strawberries - the very best.
