And that is how mine was during October and November. That means shopping, cooking, eating, washing up and repeat….with visits to the gym; Wednesday mornings working in the church coffee shop; visits to the library for books to read and reading them; picking up leaves from the garden: church on Sundays and even some cleaning.
There were a few extra activities.
A friend and I went and had a pub lunch out as we hadn’t had time for a proper chat for a while – she was busy!
My niece and family went to Stonehenge at half term and came on to have lunch with me. After lunch we played Happy Families – set of cards from my grandparents – and started Contraband – game from when I was younger. They had to go home before it got too dark so we didn’t find out how to win!
Two weeks later I saw my niece and great-nephew again as he had a football match in a village nearby so I booked a table for 3 at a restaurant. Just before we were due to have lunch my niece phoned to say her husband had a positive lateral flow test and did I still want to meet? I decided that I did; we had a good lunch and they went home – but later my great-nephew also had a positive lateral flow! While his dad got a positive PCR result he didn’t and neither did the rest of the family. And I didn’t get COVID.
My booster jab was a week later.
I also went to a funeral of someone I knew from church – dementia, not COVID.
So? Sometimes life is just fairly unexciting……
