My goodness how time is flying by. I can't believe how long it is since I have been on or near the computer. I would like to make some sweeping statement or give you an explanation but in truth I have none. The weather here this past week or so has been atrocious, making it hard to leave the cottage. RAIN, rain and more rain has been the order of the day. Thankfully today we seem to be faring a little better and the breeze is helping to dry the sodden ground. The skies are starting to lighten a little and there are wisps of cloud forming. Each day the light is lasting a few seconds longer, the days are getting longer. I think I preferred the freezing temperatures and the snow but whatever the weather front, it is not making it conducive to walking across the moor or the beach. I am looking forward to getting out and about once again. It seems to have been a long Winter and lockdown has not made it any easier.
I continue to create little doorstep gifts for the church project and have started to look at books for some Easter projects for the Grandchildren. I have yet to be inspired but I am sure a little perseverance and I will be rewarded. The dolls house continues to be a slow work in progress, a few minutes here and there. The jigsaw we finally finished and have decided not to get another one out as yet. Maybe we should try something different. I am eagerly awaiting news of the route map out of lockdown, I am sure it will make an interesting read. England reveals the route map later today, Scotland tomorrow. For my three daughters sanity I do hope there will be a return to school. Although our youngest daughter who is a maths teacher at a senior school is a little worried about the safety for herself and her pupils.
Gerard has had a flare up of RA and is finding it hard to come out of. The usual course of action when it is this severe is a steroid injection but due to Covid this is been difficult. It is awful watching your loved one in so much pain knowing there is nothing you can do to help. His last blood test showed quite a jump in the PSA levels (he has been monitored for a few years for prostrate cancer) so he is waiting for an appointment for an MRI scan and it was suggested that he should now consider a biopsy. It is quite the ordeal constantly waiting for appointments.
On the whole we have a lot to be thankful for and are filling our days. I can only apologise for my lack of visits to your blogs, I will try to visit over the next few days. I also intend to try and get out for a walk with the camera, a great way of lifting spirits is to see the beauty that surrounds us. Hope all is well with you and that you are coping with the restrictions/regulations that we live with. Take care dear friends and stay safe,
See you soon.
