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 … Continue reading

Whew.  I slept so well last night.  What a blessed relief.  I felt much much more human today, and able to do some of the things that had slipped through the net last week. One of which was sending round … Continue reading

So.  Today was definitely a rest day, not least of all because I only managed to get a few hours sleep last night.  I’m glad we didn’t have another long walk planned. As it turned out, it was a good … Continue reading
