It has been a good day so far today. The sun is shining, although it is quite cold, around 5C, with a stiff breeze blowing to keep the temperature down even further.
We have a partial lifting of our lockdown today; allowed to gather in groups of up to 10 people outdoors only and maintaining 2 metres distance, wearing masks.
P met a friend and went for a distanced run over the fells for a couple of hours. I took the opportunity to go for a solo walk and get some much needed exercise. I walked along the back lanes to the edge of Peel then back home along the coast road. It took me an hour and a half, but I slowed up at the end due to the steep hill leading home. I was not happy about the number of cyclists and one male runner who passed me from behind, way too close and not wearing masks. When I reached home I had a couple of squirts from the Vicks First Defence nasal spray, just in case. It probably doesn't make any real difference to the virus if it has already entered my system but it made me feel slightly better psychologically.
We do not celebrate Easter, being heathens(!), however I do enjoy a chocolate treat. We sometimes share a chocolate egg at Easter, but this year we decided to splash out and have one each....
Why the hell did they bother developing vaccines when we could have just used Vick's Nasal Spray instead?ReplyDelete
Well, I said it was not a rational decision YP.Delete
When you photo (in miniature) showed up in my reading list I assumed you were taking pills or supplements of some sort. That's an easter egg? (or a bucket sized mug?)ReplyDelete
Ha, mini eggs Tigger. Lindt white chocolate - bite size!Delete
Sixteen degrees down here on the Irish Riviera. You must believe in the Golden goose and the Easter bunny Jaycee?ReplyDelete
I believe in Mother Nature, Dave. Esoecially on a gorgeous day like today. The temperature has risen now and we have been drinking tea out in the garden enjoying the Manx Riviera weather.Delete
I don't do a religious Easter - I was raised Catholic but don't believe in that anymore. I put up a few decorations - Easter bunny / Spring stuff and I bought jelly beans! Family would get together to celebrate in the past but with COVID still around we won't.ReplyDelete
I only put a vase of daffodils on the windowsill and bought a small packet of those mini chocolate eggs.Delete
Pushing the boat out!
Some splashing out if i may say so (unless the wrappers are pure gold)ReplyDelete
No expense spared here Pat!Delete
MINI EASTER CHOCOLATE EGGS???!!!! You surely are heathens. We go for the full size.ReplyDelete
Low key, that's me Debby 😉Delete
Vick First Defence! Don't let it lead to the hard stuff.ReplyDelete
The slippery slope.Delete
I have not celebrated Easter or even remembered it half the time. To me it's an inconvenience. Of course for people working in some jobs it would be a holiday. I did buy an Easter Egg today for my Grandson. He may not know the significance of an Easter Egg. Indeed at three he may have difficulties with the concept of resurrection. But he understands chocolate.ReplyDelete
Ah yes, chocolate. A universal truthDelete
I have bought a Lindt chocolate Bunny for Lady Magnon (I do every year). For years I've been buying dark chocolate ones, but a couple of weeks ago she admitted that she'd prefer the milk variety. Why did she never tell me this before???ReplyDelete
Do you get to share it?Delete
The nasal spray... I can't say I haven't done similar things! I think we've all quietly taken measures like that the are almost certainly useless but which make us feel better.ReplyDelete
Yes, daft isn't it? Now I don't know what to do about the blood clots!Delete
You devils ..... a whole teeny tiny egg each !!!!! I bet that doesn’t relate to the amount of wine you have 🤣😂🤣Delete
Wishing you both a happy Easter weekend. XXxx
Cheers to you too Jackie xxxDelete
'Heathens' - that made me smile..I've heard anyone call themselves that in years, but my grandad used to quote it with pride as his religion!ReplyDelete
Heathen in all its different connotations! Perhaps humanist is a more correct term for me?Delete
Goodness me - you know how to live it up JayCee! I bet it took you ages to eat that egg...ReplyDelete
I tried to do it in two bites but failedDelete
Oh haha re those eggs!ReplyDelete
I’ve been close to country-lane-rage wirh those cyclists and runners, they come so close to we rule-minded pedestrians. Never mind, you’ll soon be fully out of lockdown.
