Elvis Presley’s birthday I believe, and also the 53rd birthday of my first foster girl.
The day is foggy and chilled, but not actually cold as we had a very pleasant walk along the prom, down to the clubhouse and back along the road. There were a few people about, but not so many that we had a problem social distancing. We wear our yellows from the boat as they keep out the wind as well as the rain. Apparently Hubby heard someone comment to their companion in the supermarket about how silly it was us wearing them when it wasn’t raining. Little do they realise that we have nothing else suitable for winter outdoor wear. Not everyone has coats coming out of their armpits or overflowing wardrobes. We have the minimum, as it’s all we can afford. But we’re warm, and more importantly dry when it matters, so they can think what they like.
It has a plus side too in that perhaps people think we are ‘authority’ and thus give us a wide berth.
Three cheers for email……… Hubby has had 2 calls from the doctor’s surgery and an email following the one he sent last night after his visit to the UTC 17 miles away. He spoke to the duty doctor who has arranged a prescription for two items which should help with the current pain in his groin (which could be another kidney stone, something we hadn’t thought of and that Hubby has had before), which he can collect from the pharmacy either after 6pm today or tomorrow morning.
The chili I made today was rather nice, and I added green beans and carrots to my plate. The weight isn’t exactly going down daily, but it’s not going up either, so I’m hopeful for a ‘maintain’ or even small loss on Sunday’s text in.
