Reasons to be cheerful ...

  • phoning, texting and emailing with family and friends
  • enjoying a Zoom session with friends, and especially seeing PW who I haven't seen for over a year, and also AM who joined the session for the first time
  • catching up with Joy when she visited to see the garden
  • benefitting from the personal training sessions
  • being able to access my blog and returning to blog land ... I've missed all of you
  • enjoying an evening at J's home
  • relaxing in a cool room and spending most of my time with my nose stuck in a book 
  • making a decision on the new gas and electricity contract .... I've been worrying about it!
  • deciding on my birthday treat, but more about that nearer the time 
  • watching the new series of Shetland on TV

I am grateful ...
  • for Kate's computer expertise and her willingness to fix my laptop
  • to Joy, for her help in dealing with the charity shop donations for me
