Lockdown Diary – 2020 – 80 – Scary Steps

The figures here convey a mix of aggression and fear as they push forward. I feel they encapsulate our collective psyche as we try it all out. Have we left enough time? Will we be able to avoid a cuddle with that grandchild we haven’t seen for three months?

There’s still much to be done – and much to be avoided.

DH spent nearly all day yesterday on the pc at virtual meetings and then playing bridge. This allowed me the mental space to get on with the wip which is now in much better nick. We still managed another slides’ viewing and visited Exeter, Devon, Arran and Glen Affric. Lamb curry from the freezer emptying project with an orange lentil daal – recipe from Hello Fresh. Lamb from Mathieson’s (Coq and Bull), Ratcliffe Terrace.

Lovely chat with a family member. They have so looked out for us.

In the writing world, Ann Burnett‘s tour continues. Today Sophie Claire‘s wonderful romance set partly in Provence, A Forget-Me-Not Summer is published in paperback. Romance with recipes – what’s not to enjoy. Congratulations, Sophie. Available from Tesco’s and bookshops and also on you-know-where here
