Morning, everyone. Winter has definitely returned as Mother Nature plays an April Fool on us all. It's turned biting cold again and, after the tiny bit of snow we had yesterday, it's snowing again now. Just a tiny but but I can just imagine the excitement in homes around here as the kids plan snowmen and snowballing at playtime on the last day of term. What a shame they will be disappointed. The forecast is for some lovely sunshine but cold and back below zero tonight. Brrrrr . . .
Friday went as expected. After a really nice chat with Chris and some breakfast, I set off for Greenwoods and had a thoroughly satisfying time. Two good swims, two relaxes in the jacuzzi, time in the sauna and a good long reading time on a lounger. Some of the time the place was totally empty (apart from me). I pitched my tent along the long side so here's a photo through the window to the outside area, empty because it was flippin' cold!
When I got home, I showered, washed my hair properly, etc, and then got into my bed things which felt highly decadent for just late afternoon.
And we had snow yesterday too. OK, we had one rather pretty and very short snow shower of the 'blink and you might miss it' variety but more than we've had all winter.
The chat/executors' meeting with John went well. We sorted out a number of things connected with the estate and, really, it's just a question of letting things work through the system, we think. While it would be nice to have everything done and dusted, there's no rush.
And the evening finished off with me being pinged. It told me I'd been in contact with someone with Covid on the 26th - FIVE days ago!! How efficient.
It was Beth, of course - but five days . . . how many people could I have infected in five days, had I caught it but been asymptomatic?
Today starts with Slimming World And Alex has asked me to get a few more things (he remains well but is not going out and about right now) and then there's nothing in the diary so I might go back to Greenwoods and have another swim after dinner. It is so nice to be feeling more energetic again. Before then, though, I have a house to tidy up before the lovely cleaner arrives, bless her.
I think today is going to be really pleasant, despite the cold, and I hope your Friday is too. Stay warm. xx
