This week it’s
Five things you enjoyed doing during the lockdown.
Our problem is that being unofficially retired (ie not being in receipt of State Pensions yet) we are under training wrinklies.
We have always enjoyed walking the dog along the beach or through the park, not having a TV we enjoy watching the occasional film on Youtube or one of our DVDs, playing darts, shopping, etc. So when your time is your own and you don’t have family to consider, there has actually been little difference other than a slight modification as to the number of times we have field trips or go shopping, and socialising other than walking the dog has been hit on the head.
Not that we are worried, and to be honest, we quite like the social distancing.
So I suppose the best approach is to list five things we have done more of during the lockdown.
I’ve been playing and experimenting probably more than I would normally and my reserve box is full. My trimmings box was almost depleted so I’ve stocked up a bit now and looking forward to putting a few more together.
Not baking you understand, with Hubby’s reflux issues and all things sweet, chocolatey and yummy being banned for the time being, I have concentrated more on dinners and trying to ring the changes. It hasn’t always worked but anything with rice is a safe bet!
We have been tinkering in the garden and Hubby has prepared the ground for his shed. All we have to do is find one to suit and that is proving a little difficult.
The greenhouse is going great guns and our produce is coming along. We’ve had 4 long radishes, a single beetroot and 5 potatoes all of which tasted extra good because we’d grown them.
On the flower side, our roses are blooming lovely!
It has helped having a board up in the hall. We are evenly matched though Hubby’s finishing is better than mine most times. We have played three games today of which I won two which was nice and believe it or not, my back didn’t play up so the gentle exercise seems to have helped.
It’s not known if the winter league will start up for 2020/21 especially as several of the previous venues are now closed and up for sale.
Having made a batch of what I term Hello Cards, I have probably written more to our friends who are in their 80s and not on the internet.
I’ve always been the letter writer of the family and miss writing to my Mum.
