This view from part of my morning run.
It's so uplifting to see a clear blue sky and the sun casting it's light over hills and houses, dappling all the new growth with fingers of warmth.
Only saw 2 peeps on other side of river who ๐Ÿ‘‹ and I did likewise.
Narrow boats and ducks and exercise and sunshine (albeit weak at that time of day)
Life is good. ๐Ÿ˜

Sunny weather today always lifts the spirits, also got plants we were waiting for delivered and then planted, and photos of DGC frolicking in their garden sent to us, also chats from a distance with neighbours.๐Ÿ˜ƒ

The thing that really lifted my spirits today was the "big clap" at 8pm. There were loads of people out on my street, and even a couple of fireworks somewhere. wanted to cry smile

Same here SalsaQueen lots of clapping on our little estate, a few cheers I managed to record a few seconds of it to send to dd (that was after faffing around trying to find the recorder on my phone hmm hence only captured a few seconds.

Lovely sunny day. Successful shop at Sainsbury (just normal weekly shop) and all their staff so lovely and polite, customers queuing patiently in the sun - felt very anxious before going but all OK. The clap for the NHS.

The people in our street all coming out to clap, whoop and and make a joyful noise.
DS said some fireworks were let off where he lives

Speaking to my granddaughter on the phone (we usually have the children after school 2 days a week and I'm missing them terribly). She was so excited about what she had achieved in the day with her new learning regime. According to my son, she organised it herself and has even done her own timetable! She has learned the French for days of the week, numbers up to one hundred, and common greetings, plus the periodic table, and has started a project on a subject she chose - Egypt. Though she gets good reports from school, I've never seen her so enthusiastic about learning. I am so impressed and hope the novelty of setting her own agenda doesn't wear off! (Her younger brother is less self-motivated and has done the bare minimum today but hopefully he'll eventually get in the swing of things.)
