Nothing special today. It will probably be another rainy one with cold temperatures not reaching anything higher that 10° C. There is even snow falling in the highlands although not staying for long.
Life at the moment seems to be a shopping, time on the computer and housework. Opportunities for going places and seeing things, especially with my camera, are far and few between, as my cockney mum would say.
I suppose there is a little excitement on the edge as I can see that vaious machines and vehicles are arriving for the work being carried out on the local railway line. From midday my exit to the outside world will be closed. There is naturally an alternative, but I hate disruptions in my routine, especially my driving routine. I spent eight years leaving the driving to Mr. Swiss after my retirement, just now and again taking the steering wheel to keep in practice, and now I am completely alone in the car and have to plan it all myself.
I don’t even have a great variety of photos at the moment. My Japanese maple tree has now sprouted its red leaves for a splash of colour.
And as I am sitting here munching my bread and honey and drinking tea, the sun has arrived to brighten up my morning. I took a step outside in the cold morning air to take a photo. Who knows how long the bright skies will last. Oh, the highlights of my morning.
Even my indoor “garden” of poinsettia and Sclumbergera are enjoying the sun’s rays on the kitchen table. And now I will go and enjoy the pleasures of morning exercise after my shower with the vacuum cleaner and mop. I will be at home this morning, but after lunch there will be a shopping marathon to fill up supplies until Thursday lunch time. The next holiday interruption is 1st May, followed by Ascension day on 30th May and Whit Monday on 9th June: just one holiday after the other it seems, again interrupting my daily routine.
I hope your day will be smooth runnings with no complications as I hope mine will be. Take care and see you later after my daily duties have been fulfilled.
