“One advantage in keeping a diary is that you become aware with reassuring clarity of the changes which you constantly suffer.” Franz Kafka
The Wednesday Challenge on GC and my site Weekly Prompts was Daily Diary – this is my third and final response to the challenge.
Friday 27th Another day begins
05 -45 AM – The Sleep App’s timing is out slightly, I think it must have logged my first fifteen minutes of the day as sleep walking!
40 minutes Awake Hours! How did I do that?
08:15 AM – By half-past five I was drinking coffee in bed and on the supermarket website, no queue this morning, but no available slots either!
It was a foggy start to the day with no visible sunrise to add to my photo collection.
After breakfast when the fog had cleared, I popped into the garden to have a chat with the cows, and believe you me, they’re such good listeners. We discussed what I should do today the red one suggested I take more photographs!
Last evening Victoria collected my new glasses from the opticians. We phoned in advance to say she was on her way. For obvious reasons, she wasn’t allowed to enter the building, but instead, she was met at the door with a disinfected bag, containing my disinfected glasses and cleaning sprays. Very sensible.
11:00 AM – Announcement from Downing Street – Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Health Secretary Matt Hancock have tested positive for the Coronavirus. Last week two Downing Street staff members tested positive. This virus just like the others is often passed on before we realise we actually have it!
Later we heard the Chief Medical Advisor is also self-isolating after showing symptoms.
For most of my life I voted Conservative, but in the last election I blamed them for Brexit, therefore I did not vote for them in the General Election, however, I do think Boris and the government have handled the pandemic very well. It cannot be easy for them – well done Boris.
12:00 PM – I made a large jug of veg and ham soup. I made far too much, so maybe I’ll need to freeze it along with the meals from yesterday.
3:00 PM – I can hear something moving around in the roof space, it sounds like a trapped bird, unfortunately, at my side of the house the roof space is sealed and we can’t rescue it- poor little bird.
4:00 PM – I went into the garden and up to the top of the front field to have another chat with the cows, and until my Sony camera ran out of battery, I took more photos.
I think I was a little too close for my Macro image, but I like it, the outer petals of the daffodil remind me of an umbrella.
