Thank you for comments since Saturday and Apologies for not replying - my mind is as blank as my days and in a way I'm regretting packing so many boxes several weeks ago as now I've nothing to do except wait, in a home that doesn't feel like mine anymore.......it's very unsettling.
Consequently more TV has been watched than ever before and my latest virtual journey with the police has been to Italy.....mainly Turin..... with "Thou Shalt Not Kill". I wonder why the police in all these dramas always have "issues". They are never happily married or settled and so many of them seem quite unstable! I suppose like soaps.....a normal life would be boring. I've also watched the first two in a short series "22 Kids and Counting"... are they mad? - Well they certainly don't seem to be and Sue Radford, the Mum, doesn't look like someone who's had 22 children. 22! Heck!
The owner of the holiday let asked if I wanted to go and look at what things of my own I might want to take as I'm going to be there for a few weeks. She has had to pare down the kitchen equipment due to covid and having to clean every single thing in the house between guests. I'm taking my breadmaker and will need a few other things - including (as Sue in Lancs. suggested) my own Big mugs.. I'm also taking my own bedding as normally she would come in and change sheets each week. The holiday let has a washer/dryer and no washing line which I'm not used to - I prefer to hang stuff outside whenever I can.
The 6 mile circular bike ride on Sunday was in lovely blue sky and sunshine.....and no wind.
Despite good intentions I'd left it several weeks between cycle rides so six miles was plenty. One of the things about living in a relatively flat area is that it's easy to see the weather coming over the horizon. All the way round I was watching clouds that seemed to be building up in all directions.
But thankfully the sun stayed shining for most of the day. It would have enticed me into the greenhouse for early sowing if I wasn't about to go off and live in limbo for a month!
