Jacks came round for supper last night, so, hopefully, we are back in our routine! We had chicken curry, rice and raita, by me, a dahl by Waitrose, chutney by Captain B, dessert by Lidl, plus cheese & biscuits, and Thornton's chocolates (from Jackie).
The weather here is alternating between stormy, and damp and mild. There have been some fabulous seas. Jean and I were out yesterday, picking up on some of our calls. She had long chats with two people, and I found two at home. One was a lady I called on months ago, and have not found since. But she remembered me straight away - took the magazine eagerly -and very definitely wants to see us in the New Year. So that was such a worthwhile morning.
I didn't get to the Field Service Group on Thursday - getting to the meeting in the evening was about all I managed. And on Friday, the Captain and I shopped in the morning, and I made the curry in the afternoon. And just that exhausted me. In my youth, I would have shopped and cooked after a day at work, and thought nothing of it. Anyway, I am very grateful to be here, to be enjoying retirement so much, and simply to be able to walk about.
If all goes to plan, I will be out on the doors with one of my siblings this afternoon.
