Saturday 24th October
I apologise for being behind woith my blog! I know many of you follow it every day, so I really am sorry!
Helen has returned to work after 7 months off which was, of course, the Lockdown and the continuing pandemic. It's nice to have the "Dream Team" back together!
We passed through Trafalgar Day when good old Admiral Nelson commanded his men to follow his instruction that "every man should do his duty". What a man!
It is no surprise that lots of folk from Barrow, which is in Tier 2, travel to Ulverston. That's nothing new. They have always done so and there is no doubt they will always do so. And they are welcome to come to Ulverston.
The weather is deteriorating rapidly. Wet and windy adn it's going to be like this for awhile I suspect. The clocks change tonight. They go BACK one hour ( Fall Back-Spring Forward) so don't forget to set your clocks.
Though the weather is worsening the Autumn Colours are coming though beautifully. Glorious reds, browns, yellows and greens. Mother Nature is truly wonderful and I love it!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
Please remember, HANDS-FACE-SPACE!

I hope you all had a nice weekend. I did.
Saturday was Qipco Champions Day at Ascot. It is an event that I regularly attend with Lisa and Dennis, but, sadly, that was not possible. I watched the event on TV of course, all the time wishing that I was there! It was certainly a Bookies Day as only one Favourite came in. They all went home with "Bulging Satchels". Hollie Doyle won the first two races and returned a 204/1 double!! A modest £10 e/w bet would have returned £2,570!!! The racing was brilliant as all the best horse and best jockeys were there. Big prizes to be won. Ascot is a fabulous racecourse. Probably the best in the world.
Sunday dawned and I had a bit of a lie-in, followed by a LSB and a FE. Then pottered around, had a little ride out on my little electric bike, listened to Johnnie Walker with Sounds of the Seventies followed by a nice tea and then a cosy night in. Not bad? Watched the new drama on BBC ( Roadkill) to round the day off. Nice.

TUESDAY 20th October
I had a very busy day on Monday, one way and another!
My Grandaughter Marissa and her partner Ben were up for the weekend from Newbury and they are both looking very well indeed. It's always lovely to see them. They are such a good match and always look very happy.
This dreadful virus will not go away. Will it ever? The statistics continue to climb and until everyone adheres to the rules I fear that there will be no recovery. Wales is to impose a Lockdown as a "circuit breaker". It sounds like a very good idea but, of course, by doing so it will cause a massive amount of other problems. The media is persistently showing examples, neverending examples, of how the restrictions around the country are affecting different groupes of people and businesses.
Obey the Goverment Guidelines!
