Angela rang me to ask for instructions. She is making a patchwork sewing machine cover like mine. Rather than explaining on the phone I went round there with my cover so she could see the next stages.
I went to the Post Office and got my package posted. There was one person inside and two waiting. Then two more ladies joined the queue behind me. Well spread out, it was flippin cold. Another lady walked towards us with cards in her hand, she saw how many were waiting and decided to do an about turn and go home. She will have to wait till Monday now, unless she goes somewhere else, to town maybe, or the next village.
Getting dark at 3.30pm, makes it a long night. I considered doing a five mile walk, but couldn't muster up the enthusiasm for it. Having a coffee with Angela seemed a better bet. She sometimes volunteers in the Age UK charity shop, but she can't find any enthusiasm for that now. The combination of winter and lockdowns is putting a damper on everything. Now would be a good time to hibernate.
Anyway, we must keep our peckers up. I will do my three miles around the village tonight and look at all the pretty lights.
Thanks for popping in. We'll catch up soon. Toodle pip. ilona
