Good morning. The good news is that the boat in the Suez has been re-floated. The bad news is that there are now 369 ships waiting to follow it through to the other side, which is going to take a while to clear. You might have to wait for your non essential items to land on our shores.
Anyway, a new day dawns, and it's going to be sunny for three days, apparently. We have been given new freedoms, so it's only right to make the best of it. Little by little they are being given back to us.
I am allowed to drive somewhere and go for a walk in a different place, so that's what I am going to do. Camera batteries are on charge and as soon as I've checked the map and had breakfast, I'm off.
Have a nice day, and grab your freedoms while you can, because once they are gone forever, there is no getting them back. The new normal is being locked up and your life mapped out for you. The old normal is thinking for yourself and taking full responsibility for your own actions. You decide.
Thanks for popping in. Catch ya later. Toodle pip. ilona

Good evening. It's late and I am too tired to write a post tonight. I went for a walk at 2.45pm, and didn't get back until 7.45pm. I hadn't intended to stay out that late, it's just how it happened. I got chatting and thought I had plenty of time to get back before dark. I didn't, darkness caught up with me. I had to come off the track and do the last bit by road because it was pitch black surrounded by trees. I couldn't see where to put my feet, and it was a bit spooky. I know the route but I didn't want to risk tripping up on the bumpy ground.
