After yesterday's long walk I feel quite lazy today so another very boring post from me.
It is a public holiday today, not that it makes much difference at the moment, so I suppose there will be quite a few people out and about. We have no plans to go anywhere or do anything much today.
I don't know what the weather is like across the water but it is still very windy here with low cloud and only 15C so not very appealing. P has finished all his outdoor chores for today and is braving the cool winds, sitting outside with his book and a cup of tea.
My niece's little boy is two years old today and they are having a lockdown party at home for him. I suppose he is too young to miss having lots of friends and family to celebrate with. I think my sister will be watching the festivities via Messenger video.
Next week the gift shop plans to reopen so I shall be back volunteering there each Friday. It will give me something to look forward to each week, and motivation to get dressed before midday. (Slovenly; me?)
It's raining here on the Irish Riviera. Supposed to be 25 degrees on Thursday. Early morning and late evening watering chores.ReplyDelete
Perhaps your rain is on it's way over here. I hope it brightens up soon though.Delete
This cheered me up no end. I get up and then tidy round, wipe down the surfaces in the kitchen, stack the washer - all before I have a shower. Sometimes it is eleven before I actually do that. Soglad I am not alone.ReplyDelete
There seems little point in rushing to get dressed when I am going nowhere and nobody is coming here!Delete
I had to search my cupboard today for something suitable to wear for a coffee on the waterfront. What does one wear when out in public??? The weather didn't help either. I didn't know if it was spring or summer. Hot two days ago. Spring yesterday, rain tomorrow. At least it wont be a heatwaveReplyDelete
Welcome to my world! We always seem to have 4 seasons in one day up here so have to dress in layers most of the time.Delete
Just heard Boris announcing non essential retail can open from 15th - hope to be back volunteering, too!ReplyDelete
You too Vronni xxDelete
By the time Tom and I are washed and dressed it is often 11 o'clock, I wish it were not but if we dash we end up in a heap, lolReplyDelete
Ah well, there's no rush xxDelete
It's 29C here - really too hot to work or even sit outside. Cooler towards the end of the week.ReplyDelete
After our mini heatwave in April, we are back to winter again!Delete
After the cool of last week we have a balmy 18c coming up today (Tuesday) - mind you it's just warming up from 3c overnight!ReplyDelete
Our next long weekend isn't until June - Queens Birthday Weekend, start of the ski season, although because of 'you know what ' that's been postponed until later that month.
Good to hear you have something to look forward to- and a reason to get dressed
It is hovering around 15C most days, but hoping for summer to arrive next week.Delete
I wonder what Lord Peregrine is reading. Either Debretts "Guide for the Modern Gentleman" or something by Jacqueline Wilson - possibly "Girls in Love" (1997). It's shocking that you often don't get dressed till midday. What would your father have thought?ReplyDelete
P is currently reading Battle Cry Of Freedom by James M McPherson. He seems to find it very absorbing.Delete
My poor old Dad wouldn't even have noticed if it was day or night once the vascular dementia took hold.
Your day sounds much like ours, though the weather was lovely. We must have spent the day walking and gardening, but it merged with all the bank working days so I think that's a fair guess!ReplyDelete
