“Ever stop to think and forget to start again?
Excuse my absence, but there is a multitude of tasks requiring attention and to think of all the accomplishments I had in mind at the start of this lockdown.!
TV has been of little help with several must-see progs. even if recorded, they must be watched later.
A very interesting one, which you’ve already seen concerned The Princess Royal’s 70th. Just like the rest of the Royal Family, she must be very fit to fulfil all those engagements and even having to attend all those evening banquets instead of staying in and putting her feet up.
My word, she certainly earns her keep!
Our weekly Zoom sessions are proceeding well on Thursdays and Sundays; the latter puts me in mind of what a GN Zoom session must be like, all ladies apart from one Grandad interloper, but they all make me welcome!
Michael P. gets around; he was in Indonesia last evening sampling revolting local dishes again. IMO that’s not a perk of the job. And he still manages to secure a seat on any mode of transport all to himself, (and a camera-man of course,), despite all the teeming millions of tourists and locals pushing and shoving everywhere.
Our Michelle (B’mouth) was describing the ins-and-outs of the Govt’s half price meal tickets. I suppose there must be some who’d refuse to accept charity; probably go out deliberately on Thursdays on principle. Judging by some of the anti-Govt. attitudes currently being expressed on various threads there’ll be more than a few decliners.
I must ask her as to how “distancing” and restaurant numbers are affecting this.
Freezing here today and the ever-smiling TV weather girls say there will be an even colder “snap” all weekend! Good to see the lighter evenings, though!
Our daffs are now beginning to wilt after a very good season, “tossing their heads in spritely dance”.
Our stats confirm another day yesterday of “new cases” below 300, but sadly still no drop in deaths.
TV News this evening confirmed that we have secured pole position regarding the Oxford Uni’s vaccine trials. Apparently we have pre-ordered the rights to manufacture 25 million “shots” in OZ, subject to it working of course and even now there is talk as to whether to make it mandatory. The Civil Rights crowd might have some input there. Hanging back until the 20 millionth has been injected successfully might be a good move.
I’ve forgotten what my Scotch homework was; I can’t say the Scotch terrier ate it “cos we ain’t got one!
Oh dear, that’s enough of that!
