So we're in lockdown again, which I'm sure we all knew would happen. It is scary though just how quickly this new variant is spreading, the vaccination programme needs to speed up considerably if we're going to cope with it. I'm not commenting on whether or not Boris is doing the right thing, but I will say I do feel sorry for him, he must go to bed with a king size headache every night, he's damned and blasted whatever he does.
Well, without going into all the details, husband and I had a good long talk yesterday and worked things out, and I think it's going to be ok. I'm sure it won't all be plain sailing, but we have formulated a plan and he's seen, and is in agreement with, my point of view. We've both agreed to work towards a common goal, part of which should be realised this year, with the ultimate goal hopefully next year. I think we both feel so much better now.
Husband's mole removal at a clinic outsourced from the big general hospital is still going ahead tomorrow....I'm surprised, I thought it was likely to be cancelled, but he had a text this morning confirming it's still on. Whether or not my op will still happen next week remains to be seen....it's at the big hospital, but in a purpose built day surgery unit separate from the main hospital. I'm pleased about that, I don't have to go inside the main hospital and everyone who has an op or procedure in the day surgery unit has to have a covid test 3 days prior, me included. So I'm satisfied that it'll be as safe as it can be.
I've got rice pudding in the slow cooker, feels like a bit of comfort food is needed! It is sunny and dry, with very little wind, but it's blimmin cold. I also made broccoli, cauli and stilton soup for lunch, it was lush with husband's homemade wholemeal seeded bread.
Thanks again for all the lovely comments, you are a wonderful bunch and I'm very grateful for your support. Xx
