As I type this, there is one day left of 2020 and I think we are all looking back at how our lives changed in the last 12 months! Pretty dramatically for us all I think.
It's hard to predict what the next year will bring and I don't think I will ever assume that I can plan anything in advance any more! Here's hoping that the new vaccine that was approved today will mean that more of us will be vaccinated sooner and maybe ... just maybe ... slow down the spread of this awful virus.
There's a news conference in about 90 minutes time and I'm wondering what that will bring - almost certainly the rest of the country will be put into the tier that we are in I am guessing. Probably delaying the return of children to schools. Who knows what else? So before Boris can upset me again I'm going to share number 19 on the Winter Photo Scavenger Hunt - something yellow
That's a happy little chappy isn't it? My cheery little Scrub Daddy, who makes washing up so much easier. Have you tried one? They are fab, you put your fingers in his eyes and thumb in his mouth and he can get into every nook and cranny of any baking dish! I'm looking forward to finding the rest of the prompts once we get into the new year, and with lockdown in force I may have to be more resourceful in what I photograph.
I was buoyed up with enthusiasm after crocheting my hat, and after an encouraging phone call with my super talented friend Denise, have ordered 15 balls of wool for a blanket. I know. FIFTEEN! How long will this take? How many more phone calls will I be having with Denise? How long before she stops answering my calls? 😂
As with the last lockdown, I am making detailed weekly meal plans and baking cakes. How quickly I forgot how easily I put on those Covid Kilos. Coffee and walnut sponge on the menu today, how long will that last?
New Years Eve tomorrow and like everyone else in this area, we have no plans! Well, apart from a takeaway meal, bottle of bubbly and watching the tv. We will wake the next day no longer part of the EU and who on earth knows how that one will pan out 😱
2021 - please, please, please be better than your predecessor!
