I find it quite remarkable that nearly three weeks have passed and I've not posted to this blog. It makes me feel really boring. My life must be dreadfully dull.
That's not how I'd describe it, though, but it has - for obvious reasons that I share with millions of others right round the globe - been restricted. Most of my time has been spent in the house, the only respite being when I go shopping or take an exercise walk.
I'm extremely grateful that we have very adequate shops just a ten-minute walk away, and an excellent farm shop a mile away that sells locally-grown meat, fruit and vegetables. However, since we choose to avoid the large Sainsbury's on the outskirts of town where we would normally (remember normal?) fill the car boot with food and drink to last us over a week, we have to visit these local shops several times a week. It's good exercise, though!
Because I spend most of my time in the house, my activities have been... 'small' is the best word I can find. I'm either writing my book (working title Those who can), posting my digitally enhanced photos on a number of Facebook groups,
reading, or watching the telly, punctuated by times on the stepper and doing other exercises. I don't play my guitar much because there are always too many people around; I don't want them to hear the mistakes! The weather's stopping me from gardening. There's decorating I'd like to get done, but the place is far too crowded. I quite happily do the housework, strange as that may seem, though lethargy and indolence do occasionally kick in to cause that to happen rather randomly.
I guess most of you are experiencing the same kind of thing, so I'm sorry if I'm boring you. These aren't complaints, please understand. Simply observations. I am exceedingly grateful that the virus isn't affecting us in far more awful ways. I hope the same is true of you.
Always on the lookout for fun and interesting things to do/play/see/listen to on the interweb, I came across this the other day, and spent half an hour or so looking through the windows of houses in fifteen different countries. Each view is a ten-minute video, but you can move on whenever you want. I've not been through all of them, so I have no idea how many there are. Do try it - it's fascinating! https://www.window-swap.com Perhaps you'll want to want to add the view from your own window. Enjoy!
