It’s raining at the moment, and has been off and on all day.
I went up to the Post Office first thing, well, sort of, being the first thing I did after a late breakfast, and got my packet in the post to NZ. Seems Air Mail is still operational from the UK there, though our neighbour posted something to her son and the family in Australia and no air mail was being accepted. As there was no warning or notice about it, it is unlikely her parcel will arrive this side of 2021.
Lunch has been had and Hubby had the second half of his pasty with a fried egg. Something gave him hiccoughs which were painful, so he has been taking things slowly since, but the ice cream went down very well and soothed his throat. I had my tomato pasta with mushrooms.
We had another funeral in the road today. I didn’t know this lady, only ‘of her’, but it’s possible everyone met up at the Crematorium because we’ve actually seen nothing go past our window unless it was first thing this morning.
We saw a friend being taken off in an ambulance last week but I haven’t seen anyone of the family to ask after him. His dog was the other ‘Smiler’ I got to know when we first came here, and by all accounts she didn’t go to people, yet came to me from day one. I am convinced I was a dog in a former life.
I had a funny turn in the shop today and had to support myself against a shelf. I took another couple of steps and had to do the same, so stood still to let things settle down and stop swimming. One of the floor staff came over to ask if I was OK and I said not really. She told me to stay put while she went to get me a chair, then assisted me to one of the closed checkouts so that she could keep an eye on me in case I needed further help. I felt so silly and embarrassed as I sat there with my baguette, mushrooms and grapes, but I felt better after ten minutes or so, paid for my goods, and returned to the car. I told Hubby, so we came straight home, and I went for a lie down. My BP was good, 138 over 77 with a pulse of 57, my temperature 36º and pulsox 96%. I think it was a combination of wearing a mask in a warm place and getting a wee bit hot and bothered. I’ve had a catnap as well as lunch since and walked the dog twice so think it was just one of those things.
Late accessing my blog again today as it’s nearly 4pm, so my apologies in respect of pingbacks for the 3TC challenge today. I’ll get on that now.
