In the time of the virus: just another day

So after yesterday’s milestone (100 days), today’s another day.  A very busy one, as it turned out, so not much energy (or time) left to write much.

I spent quite a bit of today working on the allotment, and got lots and lots done.  All very satisfying, and all the more so to see it looking good when I finished.  Still lots more to do, but for reasons that will become clear, it seems like I’ll have quite a bit of time for doing it over the next couple of weeks.

Anyway, plans have been made, remade, unmade and made again for the next few days.  I think we’ve got to the final version.

And then suddenly, the phone went and it was the hospital saying that if I (we) can self-isolate for a fortnight from Monday, later this month I can have the eye operation that was due to to have been done back in April.  We discussed it briefly, but of course decided yes.  My vision has been getting worse (mostly not functionally so, but over the past few weeks I’ve begun to notice it when I’m reading, especially later on in the day).  It will be amazing to have it fixed again.

So much for me saying yesterday that I knew what the next few days would bring.  It turns out, little did I know.

Anyhow, before that fun starts, the birthday fun will happen.  I think he’ll enjoy it.

See you tomorrow xx

About deborah @ the magic jug

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!
