Monday

 Good morning!  It's a dull start to the new week; no sun and a but of a breeze.  I haven't gone out yet but I bet it isn't that warm either!

Yesterday was very pleasant but it didn't really warm up; the sun had some warmth in it but when it went behind a cloud it was surprisingly cool.

I woke quite early and whizzed around getting everything cleared up and sorted out.  It didn't take all that long really and by mid afternoon all the leftovers had gone, as had my guests!  Beth and I had gone to the allotment, did some necessary weeding, gave everything a good watering and pulled the rhubarb.

After an exchange of emails, I'm off over to Dad's this afternoon.  He hasn't been well  and I need to go - it might be a bit of a rule breaker, but it's a very small one as we're both pretty safe as far as covid is concerned.  So just to let you know that I probably won't be posting tomorrow or, perhaps, Wednesday but I should be back again by Thursday.

There's quite a long list of Things To Do this morning, so I'd better get on with it!  Have a good day/week and stay safe.  xx

  1. I hope your Dad's ok, or at least picks up soon, Joy. I'm sure he'll feel a lot better just having you there. Take care of yourself as well. xx

    1. I think that's the bottom line, Sooze. He's asked me to help him get to the GP tomorrow so that's a 'reason' but he's not at all well and he's feeling very down.

  3. I hope your Dad is okay Joy. Won't your visit come under the provision of emergency care rules or have they been changed?

    1. I'm not sure but I'm hoping so. Anyway, I'm going whether or not it conforms to a rule. I doubt there will be many who would argue against that really.

  4. I do hope your Dad is okay, it's a worrying time isn't it. You aren't breaking rules if you need to go and care for him in any way.

    The weather is strange isn't it, as you say the sun is warm but there can be a real chill in the air that hits you the minute the sun goes behind a cloud.

    1. It is a worry and I'm glad I will be there to help a little bit. I think he will feel better for a bit of company anyway.
      Yes, it's very odd. Not really very April at all.

  10. Hope your dad feels better soon! What are you going to make with the Rhubarb? I used to love a nice crumble with custard.

  11. Thanks, everyone! I'm very glad I went. Sharon, I added some strawberries and made us a crumble - delicious! The rest is steeping with sugar and gin!
