THIS WEEK.............I'm not at all sure about swimming at the 12 Noon session on a Monday. There is a Rather Large Man who swims very slowly and he ought to stop at the end to let faster people (ie ME!) go past AND he tends to swim down the middle so there's no chance of getting by. Monday last week was the second time he's been there at 12 at the same time as I have and just to add insult 2 other people were also held up by him AND the lifeguard didn't ask him to wait at the end of the pool to let other people by until just before I was about to get out of the pool.
THIS WEEK...........After the PM's update on Monday we in Suffolk are in a Medium Risk area - nowhere
is Low Risk - not even Devon and Cornwall where infection rates were
actually falling. I'm still carrying on with the few things left in my
life that I'm allowed to do and hoping that we don't get a full lock
down before half term week when Eldest Daughter and Eldest Grandson
should be coming to stay for a couple of nights - but it's not looking hopeful.
THIS WEEK.................. I've made a decision NOT to buy The Almanac Seasonal guide for next year
Or The Country Wisdom and Folklore diary
Much as I like and have enjoyed both for a few years, a year without will save me £20. The Diary was really good when it had spiral metal coil binding - they changed to normal book binding this year for environmental reasons - but then of course the diary won't lay flat or stay open on the right page. My 2021 diary is a £2 affair from The Works - with No Moon timetable so would be no good for my blog friend Rachel-in-Norfolk! So in theory I now have £18 to spend on books if I'm ever short of reading!
THIS WEEK.........At last a communication from my Dentist - telling me they are closing the local bit where I go - 4 miles- to concentrate everything on their Ipswich hub. I don't really want to travel that far to get teeth sorted but they have £120 of my money that I had to pay in March as a deposit for having a tooth fixed. Since then more of the tooth has broken anyway so it might have to come out. I shall try and get my money back first I think. There's no hope of having anything done on the NHS - it's impossible to find a dentist that hasn't gone private nowadays.
This week I'm grateful for
- Finding snooker (The English Open on Quest) on TV for wet afternoons this week
- Strictly Come Dancing is back on TV tonight - it may be different due to Covid but it will still be sparkly and happy.
Hope you all have a good weekend, I shall return with more pearls of wisdom(?) on Monday
