Looking forward to Friday.

 Dear family, friends and followers.

How are you all doing?

We are all living through strange old times and yet there are those who are carrying on as if nothing is happening. There are those who believe this is all a figment of our imagination. I know many know exactly what we have been going through since March, because some will have had this darn virus and some will have lost loved ones because of it. We have taken the virus incredibly seriously, some may say we have been over safe and that is fine, that is their opinion. I have even had people question me as to why we did not stay out and cruise. Again that is their right to question. We did what was right for us at the time and it remains the same and we would not have done anything any different. I want to protect us for as long as I can and I will do whatever it takes. For months, neither of us left the Arm. I then ventured out to the pharmacy for prescriptions and occasionally to the post office. I usually go because I am 10 years younger than Keith and I really dread him catching the virus. This past couple of months, I have been taking myself off for a morning walk. I decided that I needed to do more exercise than walking around the Arm could offer. Not only that seeing something different really gladdens the soul and mind.

I usually walk over the racecourse and St. Mary Land's a couple of times a week.
The views are stunning and I can walk around the racecourse without hardly meeting a soul. I see dog walkers, joggers, walkers and sometimes cyclists, but none of us needs to get close, because of the huge area we have to walk in. 
The media go on about doing things for the good of our mental health, well I am not one who suffers from poor mental health, but the walking has given me a chance to think and it has also blown the cobwebs away. I need to exercise for the sake of my waistline, which has been expanding of late. Each week we allow ourselves a treat at weekends. It could be a bag of Doritos or a bar of chocolate. Yes I know we know how to live the high life. We will also allow ourselves a Thai takeaway from our very good local Thai restaurant, who have been doing deliveries throughout the pandemic. When we got to ten takeaways, we were allowed a free meal up to the amount of £26 and like every meal from them it was truly excellent.

Throughout this pandemic it has always been good to try and find something to look forward to. Well this coming Friday, something wonderful and exciting is happening for me. I am not going to spoil the surprize by telling you now, but will post more when it has happened. I will say it has been a long time coming and will change our lives forever in a fabulous way. 
Have you had a flu vaccination yet?
Keith and I always go to our local pharmacy in Warwick to have ours done. I e-mailed them at the beginning of September, to find out when the vaccines would be in, to be told that I could as for an appointment after the 21st September. On the 22nd I e-mailed asking for an appointment, because that is how they are being done this year due to Covid-19. By return e-mail, I had the online forms to fill in for both of us and our appointment was for the 28th September, which was yesterday. We had no queuing, we just walked in answered a few questions about whether we thought we may have the virus and then having answered everyone No, we were given our flu vaccinations. It is well worth doing, especially this year. Now we must wait for a Covid-19 vaccine, so that we can get our lives back to some sort of normality.

May you all remain safe and well.

Pop back soon xxx
