In the time of the virus: day 96

And here we are again on the weekly merry-go-round back at Saturday. A very different day from last Saturday – from my perspective, enjoyably cooler and showery (so no need to water anything apart from the greenhouse plants).  Sadly an … Continue reading

In the time of the virus: day 92

Another relaxing relaxed day.  Starting off on the allotment (while Malcolm met a friend at an RSPB site).  I walked down to the river to meet up with a friend for coffee out – something previously so ordinary now such … Continue reading

In the time of the virus: day 79

Today has been a really enjoyable, productive  and satisfying day. I got several jobs done around the house, including a long-overdue tidy of the room where I go to sew.  Though I still can’t find my pinking shears.  Bright orange, … Continue reading

In the time of the virus: day 61

Another bad night, but a good day. A walk taking in woods and two country hamlets. An afternoon snuggled with R4, knitting, and possibly a snooze.  And watching the blackbird eat his way through more of the mahonia berries.  Not … Continue reading

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 … Continue reading

In the time of the virus: day 24

What a busy day that was!  After the usual cleaning routine, I spent much of the day out on the allotment, doing something I’ve been wanting to do for ages – emptying, sorting and tidying my shed.  With help from … Continue reading

In the time of the virus: day 23

In the time of the virus: day 20

A very short post today, because I’ve been too sleepy to write much.  Three consecutive nights of not enough sleep.  No reason, not worrying about stuff (even though heaven knows there’s enough to worry about!).  Just awake from 3am onwards. … Continue reading

In the time of the virus: day 17

In the time of the virus: day 16

My days (and weeks) are beginning to develop their own pattern and form, which is what I was hoping for. Mornings always begin with a quiet, relaxing breakfast reading the day’s Guardian – a reliable and always interesting source of news, … Continue reading
