Lockdown Diary – 2020 – 98 – Today’s One of the Days

We’ve got an entry slot for the Royal Botanic Garden of Edinburgh!

Next up to try is Edinburgh Zoo where we might – at a social distance – meet up with family.

Domestic day yesterday. I have missed the physical Sunday service at Mayfield Salisbury but appreciate the wonderful online effort by so many of the congregation. Being a writer whose work is hugely influenced by place, I miss the once a week trip into the sanctuary. I realise, now it’s missing from my life, how much it grounded me for the week.

Left a message on my hairdresser’s website asking/begging to join the waiting list. Remembered to take the special lamb dish I cooked for a Christmas-time meal out of the now nearly empty freezer. It wasn’t used and might have been shared earlier had we not found ourselves with no possibility of guests. Ah well, speciality lamb two nights running: this diary is about the small positives. Reading, jigsaw, ballet online, finding two not recently read Georgette Heyer’s.

What are you most looking forward to?

    • Hi Joanne, I think many folk are in that place. I know some of my family are itching to go up north where they would normally have been on many occasions for both business and leisure. the last stage is often the hardest, I think, but we are getting there. anne
