How quickly Saturdays come round. Always a bit of a non-day but it least it has been fine. Not the lovely blue sky, sunny, warm day of yesterday but although I didn't particularly feel like walking I made myself do so and I feel better for it. Sitting about is just not good for me, I know that. And I suppose that goes for most of us.
My old school friend rang this afternoon and we had a nice old chat. Talking on the phone is not easy - hopefully when I get my new hearing aids it will be better but we are both the same age - in fact she will be 90 shortly after I am 89 (Hallowe'en). These days it is difficult not to compare ailments and ability to walk (neither of us can walk unaided but I manage quite a long walk daily (rain and str.ong wind days excepted) and she can't manage a Priscilla so can only walk a short distance. But neither of us complain - we have both had happy marriages (2 in my case) and feel we have been very lucky.
I have two busy weeks in front of me now - appointments with the chiropodist, the phlebotomist, The Medical Centre for my Flu Jab, a visit from my God daughter, a visit to The Hearing Clinic to have the moulds made for my new hearing aids. It is good to be busy but a happy medium is the best. Slotted in here is a Tesco order which means I like to clean out the fridge and the cupboards prior to its arrival and the planning and cooking of the meal for my God daughter and her husband. I look forward to doing this but just hope it turns out alright as I so rarely cook these days.
I feel greatly saddened by the death in such dreadful circumstances of Sir David Amess yesterday. He was so obviously a man much loved by his family and also by h.is constituents. Such a lot of troubles in our World and so little we seem able to do about them
