In the time of the virus: day 45

It’s Wednesday, and by the end of today’s walk we are at the half way mark of our circular walk (not) around Arran.  It was another lovely walk, in glorious sunshine, and for the first time we saw quite a few other people around.  We will be avoiding some of the busier places in future.

Today’s walk took us through the two former railway tunnels again, and out through Monkton Combe to Dundas, where we joined the Kennet and Avon Canal and walked back into Bath and home again.  On the whole a flatter walk than yesterday, which was appropriate for a completely coastal walk (which of course this wasn’t, though we did walk beside water for around half the walk).

Afterwards there was still time to work through a basket of completed knitting sewing up and sewing in ends; to cut the grass in the garden; and to put up some more wires on fences to support plants growing up to cover the fences.  To listen to a radio play or two, and to have a good phone catch-up with a friend.  Also to receive good news about youngest son, who has been mostly without work since before the lockdown, having another brief piece of paid work.

No more today, I’m tired and need my sleep.  I hope you’re well, and able to make the best of these difficult times.  See you tomorrow xx

Now I've passed 60 I'm still doing all sorts of things I haven't done before, as well as carrying on with the things I already love. I live a happy life with my long term love Malcolm. In my blog I explore local and low tech ideas, food, growing, making, reading, thinking, walking, and lots of other words ending in 'ing'.

I love to read your comments. I don't expect everyone to agree with me, and I don't mind if you don't. However, I ask you to respect the 'circle time' rules made by my son's primary school teacher: make a comment, ask a question or say something nice. Thank you!
