I'm putting yesterday behind me and carrying on! Anything that could go wrong chose yesterday as the day for demonstrating just how wrong it could go, nothing serious I hasten to add, just one thing after another and mostly initiated by other people. Frustratingly, the only thing I managed was the Indian cookery but the museum trip and Zoom photography both had to be rescheduled.
So the museum trip is back on for today, fingers crossed. I'm seeing J for coffee so will go earlier to see the photography exhibition before we meet up ... looking around the museum displays following the refurbishment can wait for another day. We do have a tendency to lose track of time while we're together but hopefully I'll be able to fit in a bit of book shopping afterwards.
I've made a bit more progress on the decluttering. The collectables have all been bubble wrapped and boxed so are ready to be sent off to the Vintage Cash Cow to see how much they will offer me for them and I'll go to the Post Office either today or tomorrow to send those packages on their way. I've also carried on photographing the craft goodies, which is proving to be more of an effort that it should be due to the lower light level indoors at this time of year ... trying to photograph shiny items using flash is a challenge I could do without! One bit of good news though is that G, my hairdresser, has found someone to have to old piano, which is a huge relief.
The number of Covid cases in this area continue to rise and I find it impossible not to feel anxious about it especially as hearing that people I know have tested positive, or have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive, now seems to be a daily occurrence. I still haven't heard back from the organiser of the Italian conversation group so I have decided to put it on the back burner for now and see what the local situation is after Easter. There are other options for improving this aspect of learning so I will start looking to see which, if any, will suit my learning style.
Reading back through this post I think it sounds a bit negative so I'll finish by assuring you that I am feeling fine emotionally. The cancellations and disappointments are very much part of life at present for everyone so I'll just pick myself up and try again!
