Sunday, Sunday

Day 347...

Another quiet and lack lustre Sunday has rolled around.

The motivation levels have been severely lacking today despite it being another bright and sunny day.

A slow start to the day was followed with the usual Sunday updating of my online grocery shop while Simon did some more sanding of various R2D2 parts.

We took a walk out over the fields and while there were a few spots of squelchy mud the paths were definitely a lot dryer than of late. We managed 3.3 miles in just over an hour and ten minutes. This brought our total miles for February to 61 miles in 20 hours!

The afternoon was spent drinking coffee outside in the sunshine reading my latest book while Simon did yet more sanding!

I then decided to make some keto garlic bread, trying a new recipe out for the first time and I have to say the end result is very yummy, and just a little bit moreish!

And then the day was rounded out with the Disney Dream Girls weekly Disney quiz via Zoom. We had a good old chat and attempted to put the world to rights and somewhere in there were my questions on the film Brother Bear. Next week we will be having questions set by Kacy on the movie Muppet Treasure Island, which is a movie I don't think I've ever seen!

And as we round out today we cast our minds back to this time last year. Simon was in Boston, US, for a video game exhibition called PAX East. He was spending his days in a busy, crowded conference  hall, shaking hands and getting up close and personal with people from all over. He had traveled there and back using planes, trains and the tube in London and all at a point when the pandemic was more than likely 'raging away'. A year on and we find ourselves in this indeterminable lockdown, with our liberties and freedoms taken away. In a world where we find ourselves questioning all the time what we are allowed to do, where we can go and with whom. I thought that we lived in a free democratic society but it feels more and more authoritarian by each day that passes.

How things have changed in a year! Take care wherever you may be.
