Wednesday

 Good morning!

A pleasant day yesterday with plenty of sunshine after a dampish start.  The days are starting to assume the same low key and slightly subdued vibe as last lockdown which is OK by me.  I like a peaceful life.

We had another go at a chat, Dad and I, and this time it was successful.  Dad's obviously taking this seriously; he has always liked a challenge and has never taken kindly to being beaten by a machine!  Through the rest of the day I received several invites to chat as he played with the system and get more to grips with it all.  Fortunately, he had warned me so I wasn't alarmed!

What else?  Well, the shelves didn't arrive so I expect they will be here today.  I did a bit of housework and quite a lot of stitching and, all in all, it was very pleasant.

Today is mostly more of the same.  I have a scheduled chat with Val this morning, followed by an online personal training session with Lindsey.  After that the day is my own.  I will watch Bake off, which I always record, and then whatever I fancy as I read, stitch and knit.
If the shelves come, that's quite different, of course!  The day will be a fair bit more active.  I just don't see the point in clearing cupboards out to create a pile of stuff somewhere else, so I'm waiting until the storage is sorted.
Sensible or lazy?  Well, maybe both!

Have a great day and stay well.  xx

  1. It certainly is peaceful in this lock down - people aren't even walking the footpath down the meadow like they did first time.
    Have a good day

    1. It's not really the weather for casual walking, especially if it's not the norm, I suppose.

  2. Totally sensible!
    I'll be watching Bake off this afternoon too, suddenly there's loads on at the same time, can't keep up with it all.
    Enjoy your day!

    1. There's a lot to watch right now, I agree. I'm glad - it's nice to be spoilt for choice.

  3. Definitely sensible ... just move things once!

    I'm glad your Dad is persisting with Zoom. It sounds like he enjoys a challenge.

    "low key and slightly subdued vibe" is an accurate description up lockdown life. The slower pace of life definitely suits me. I hope you enjoy your day xx

    1. He does - always has been. The parameters might change but the competitive instinct hasn't!
      It's going nicely so far, thanks. You too.

    2. I used Zoom this afternoon and had the black screen problem. I could see and hear my friend but there was a black screen where I should have seen myself. It was resolved by choosing the 'run video' option in the bottom left hand corner of the screen.

    3. I don't remember seeing that. If we have issues again, I'll take a look and see. It seems a bit different in that Dad can see himself and me and I can see me but not him.
      It just seems very odd - I've not had that problem with anyone else. Strange.

    4. If this is the solution I think he is the one who needs to select run video.

    5. He says he is . . . I wish I were there to see exactly what he is doing. ANd for other reasons too, obviously! :-)
