More work in the garden today, am taking it at a comfortable pace as less need at the moment to 'get it all done' within tight weekend timelines.

Very warm.  ;D

The only problem for me this weekend is going to be noisy neighbours who think they can play their music till after dark, will continue most evening till about October time, drives me bonkers, sometimes I wish for the dark nights and it is only just light nights

I am not a misery by any means

Slight change of diet for breakfast ;D
Paul Rankin's Cinnamon & Raisin Toasting Loaf - 2 slices of; plus cup of Assam tea.

Went for a walk, trying to find some soured cream?
Queues too big (for me, at least!) at Co-Op and M&S. So went further afield.
Spar didn't have what I wanted, so another trek.
Got what I needed in Co-Op #2.

So fajitas for tea ;D

Did a little sun-bathing between the clouds.

This evening it was baking time - made a batch of Easter biscuits.
Very traditional in Somerset & Bristol; I use my mum's recipe.
All recipes use Oil of Cassia (aka Chinese cinnamon).

Relaxing now with a glass of perry ;)

Woke up and after rousing myself and gathering my thoughts I thought it was Wednesday. I was convinced it was until late morning. Read the news and some of my genealogical mystery novel.

Did a DIY manicure and pedicure, I always do my own anyway so nothing new there. Checked the weather forecast, much cooler than yesterday and cloudy, selected a jacket for my walk based on that. Set off on my walk, it was proper chilly! Soon warmed up doing my fast walk. Back home, cuppa and a bit more reading. Lunch.

Got my paints and brushes out and did some more painting, meanwhile the sun was coming out. Gave the brushes a good wash and put everything away. Sat down for a break and despite really enjoying my painting I felt quite miserable. Logged onto Rootschat for a bit of a diversion. Checked some emails.

Had forgotten to ring the pharmacy about my owed inhaler, was thinking I'd phone tomorrow but realised it's Good Friday so they may not be open.

Put a Place in The Sun on the TV, just to torture myself even further. I was due to go on holiday in mid May, of course that won't be happening now. Curry for tea from the leftover roasted chicken that I'd frozen, brown rice that takes much longer to cook than white rice. Berries and yogurt as usual.

Clapped for the carers at 8pm, lovely to see nearly all my neighbours on their doorsteps and looking well. Haven't spoken to anyone at all today.

Day 2 of isolation for us.  Everyone doing OK but the kids bickering.


Been smirry all day so hopefully that will discourage people from travelling too much.  Beef stew for dinner and my friend left fruit on my doorstep. My colleagues made a wonderful video as a tribute to our colleague.

Today's entertainment was The Love Bug and Herbie Rides Again.

Late start today as busy reading my book...

Thought I'd have another bash at trying to do my Yogalates.... still no sound coming up so sent a message to my teacher....

As it's now 72 hrs since I went shopping all the items on the bench in the garage that have been in isolation can be put away....

OH noticed the Easter egg I'd bought... quality street... it's been on there since Monday he's been in and out of the garage all week and he's only just seen it😱😱

Decided that all my shopping bags ( which have also been in the garage) ought to have a wash after I'd seen a terrifying account on germs etc harboured in bags.. into the washing machine they went....
Hoping they'd all come out ok and not shrunk or shredded as most are jute!
They were all fine.. phew!

Heard back from Yogalates teacher With suggestions so tried and all is fine but too late now so will be doing exercises after breakfast tomorrow.

Had lunch... OH up his ladder again doing the repointing job...
I gave the metal kiwis another coat of paint..
Just about to get ready to clean the windows when the window cleaner turned up.... I was delighted to see him
So inside we both came until he'd finished so read some more of my book.

Had another look at my Waitrose order that I'm collecting on Monday ... almost need to start again as what I'd put on there 3 weeks ago now don't need or want... need different items..

Had dinner. .. went out at 8pm to clap and watched some tv.

Another day passes
