If it wasn’t COVID it is now petrol.

 We are due to go to Cambridge next Friday to visit our son and family.Angus was 15 last Friday and we have only seen him once in 18 months.He has shot up and his voice has broken.We we’re really looking forward to spending the weekend with the family.The car is full of petrol but it will only get us there,not enough to come back.Do we risk it?

I have finished my Dune blanket(Attic 24).
This is my next project and my socks that are a WIP.

I am worrying at the moment about my daughter.She is feeling overwhelmed by what is going on in her life.Thank goodness we have moved closer because face to face chats are much better than on the phone.I am trying to help her pass the time with jigsaws ,a couple of small craft kits and a puzzle book.Fingers crossed it is short lived.

What a difference a week makes.

 I was anxious at this time last week but it has been great.Last Friday morning our closest friends came for coffee,the first visit to our new house.It got their seal of approval.On Friday afternoon we visited ( with our old U3A group) a garden in Burton village on the Wirral.What a wonderful garden set over three acres with really unusual plants.There were 22 of us,some we know,some we didn’t.It was just brilliant talking to other people.No masks required as we were outdoors.

Monday morning we were back to U3A Social History.It was a talk on Airbus which is a great employer in North Wales and Chester.There were 60 plus at this meeting and many of our friends were there.How good to catch up with them after 18 months.In the afternoon C went to his Music Live group where he plays ukulele.They are practising for a gig at the end of the month.Again, a first for him for 18 months.I went to visit a friend who has got family problems.

Wednesday we went out to lunch with three friends.It was in a hotel where our daughter got married so quite nostalgic.So,all in all ,a good week and I coped fine.

Tomorrow a visit to Dunham Massey NT weather permitting.

Hope you are all coping.

Best wishes
