Woke to a bright day which was a refreshing change.  Asda delivery arrived just after 1pm - 1 substitute which I didn't want so taken back by driver.   After putting that away Hermes delivered some wool I'd ordered, did some knitting until around 4pm when I went to the pharmacy to collect my 3 monthly repeat prescription.   One lady ahead of me who I hadn't noticed was not wearing a mask.   She glanced in my direction after a while and then frantically rummaged in her bag before finding and donning her mask.

Continued knitting when I got home - if I sit down I automatically pick up my needles now.   Lots to do before babies arrive.

Looking forward to meeting up with my sister and 2 friends this evening (Saturday) for a meal at friends house.   My sister and I have birthdays this coming week (consecutive days) and tonight the only time when we could get together with our friends.

Had dinner and evening spent watching tv and knitting.   Riveting stuff this!

Noticed no-one had started the diary for today - I too was tired although I did still read for a while in bed as I seem to sleep better if I do.

Stay safe!

We all have to keep on keeping on.
Ankerdine You have a heron which feeds at your pond? That's a sort of a mixed blessing I imagine.
The boating lake/pond is still there in Young's Park, adjacent to Goodrington beach. Motorised bumper boats, and pedal boat swans are available for hire in the summer time. 
At quiet times it is possible to see large fish, and there is plenty of bird life which had a good breeding season this year.  Swans, herons, mallard and tufted ducks, coots and moorhens all feed there on a regular basis.
Not the same place as the lakes we have walked around this week, which have been created on what was a massive municipal rubbish dump in Clennon Valley, (the other side of the Dartmouth Road,) and the area is becoming a marvellous wildlife sanctuary, under the care of a great team of volunteers who control the vegetation.

That's a wonderful thing to have done for nature; a really positive activity for today.

That would be great Ankerdine.

Ankerdine, I can just imagine you miming through the butcher's window 'Don't forget the chops' and OH replying 'They don't sell chocolate here'  ;D

I'll think about whether I dare lay myself bare by posting my artwork here for the world to see.  ;D

Annette, hope you've enjoyed your meal tonight.
