I’m getting tired now. After almost 6 weeks of working I’m tired. I nearly broke my big toe this evening walking up the stairs to the bedroom…I misjudged the height and whacked it good and solid. Ouch. 8.5 days to go…

On the meal preparation front, I outdid myself with tonight’s supper…a sweet and sour fish curry. OMG. I wasn’t really in the mood for cooking and just chucked all the ingredients into the pan….and if was delicious. Fortunately I made a huge batch of the curry sauce, so tomorrow night we’ll have it with Quorn mince. Yum.

So today I continued compiling my post-lockdown travel list:

Lavender Farm
Thames Rib Experience
Visit Hungarian family
Zip line in Wales
Finish the Pilgrim’s Way
Walk St Cuthberts Way
Walk the Two Saints Way
Walk Hadrian’s Wall
Start walking the South Coast Route
And enroute Walk around The Isle of Wight
Walk the coast of Wales
Visit Skye
Visit the Lake District

Except for one, all local. The international trip I’m planning to do by train and have already been looking at routes. It’ll take much longer, but I want to avoid air travel as much as possible, and besides which, the scenery would be amazing. I may even take an extended trip back and stop off in different countries enroute.

I didn’t get out for a walk today instead I spent a good half hour facetime with my grandson πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ’™πŸ‘ΆπŸ»πŸ˜Š He’s so cute. Then I had a snooze and continued reading the latest book: The Pure in Heart by Susan Hill that I started yesterday. Its actually the book before the one I read already, but I’m still enjoying it…

I watched a nature programme on BBC2 earlier, about different apes. They featured macaques and oh my gosh, they are so like humans its extraordinary.

I barely watched the news today, I just cannot bring myself to listen to the lies and fabrications anymore. Learning that the testing targets were reached by inflating the numbers and including tests sent out but not yet returned and checked is beyond sickening. The Tories are playing politics with people’s lives. The litany of errors and missed opportunities due to incompetence or arrogance is astounding.

If it wasn’t for our NHS staff who are working tirelessly, we would be in a more serious situation. K saw this beautiful image on Facebook today, and although it depicts the Australian medical profession, I think it can apply to any country

Thank you πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸŒˆπŸŒˆπŸŒˆ

I hope you are all well and keeping safe. All the best…
