We cycled north this morning, it was a bit murky and misty but with no wind so we were able to get some good average speeds. My knee has been feeling a lot stronger so we have been going further afield. By the time we get home it’s time for coffee and then potter about in the garden. The cloud has been clearing mid morning and turning into hot, sunny days. Yesterday we had lunch outside on the terrace. Eating outside is always more relaxed and laid back. Tomorrow Alex, the plumber, is coming to service our heating boiler so we won’t be cycling.
We have been watching quite a bit of television during this lockdown. With Netflix, Now TV and Freeview there is plenty to choose from. We recently enjoyed two good French dramas - Philharmonia and Maman a Tort by Walter Presents. They were French but with English sub titles. Currently we are watching Chernobyl (very disturbing) and The Salisbury Poisonings. Salisbury was our home for many years so we have a particular connection with the city. We’ve practically given up watching the news briefings, they are just too tedious and depressing. The country will come out of lockdown and we won’t even know about it!
Three years ago today we adopted a scruffy but gorgeous dog from the rescue centre in Cahors, happy Gotcha Day Rick!
