A nice morning, dry and a bit milder. But there is a warning of some heavy and persistant rain coming our way.
I hope you had a nice weelkend. I certainly did. I worked in the office to midday on Saturday then watched the racing whilst litening to Paul Gamobocini with Pick of the Pops. I had made a very tasty braised steak in Guinness for tea and it was delicious! Watched the Snooker. Brilliant stuff.
I had a bit of a lie-in on Sunday morning and after a FE breakfast got my kit on and had a nice walk up Hoad Hill ( 6700 steps according to ny gadget ). There were lots of folk out, getting their exercise and all, quite corectly, maintaining social distancing.
The family had our weekly virtual meeting. This week it was helen's turn to produce the quiz. And it was great fun. Even though I came a very miserable last place!
I watched he final of the Snooker and it was superb!
I hope you all keep well adn safe.

Saturday 15th January
A rainy morning and noticeably milder. No two days seem to be the same, recently. The snow yesterday showed Hoad looking very appealing adn the lakeland fells were covered nicely. But tis morning it's all gone away. Yje kids will eb disappointed I should think.
The first of the Vaccinations at the Health Centre took place yesterday and my daughter, Helen, volunteered to help and so she was "on shift" from 12 till 4 guiding patients. She said that she thoroughly enjoyed it and all the patients were so grateful that they were receiving the vaccine.
But no one must allow themselves to become complacent. It remains vital that everyone follows the rules. The health experts are saying, loud and clear, that we have not yet reached the peak of this pandemic. The positive cases, adn teh death figures are startling. So staying at home and only going out if is essential. If you do venture out it has to be for a legitimate reason.

Wednesday 13th January
A wet and dull day! It's going to rain all daya dn most of tomorrow as well. So if you are going out, don't forget your umprellas!
Such a contrast to the beautifully sunny day of yesterday. We are a tough race?
I watched to two concluding episodes of The Night Manager. They certainly did not disappoint! Fantastic stuff. If you have not watched it, I certainly recommend that you do. It's "edge of the seat" stuff.
The Covid situation is not improving yet, but it will do if folk would act responsibly and follow the rules. The Home Secretary has said that the Police will have more powers to fine those who not following the rules. The Supermarkets are becoming more authoritive and are insisting that shoppers must wear a face covering unless excused for some particular reason. A policy which is well overdue, I would think.
Helen has volunteered to help with the Vaccination Centre at the Ulverston Health Centre. Well done Helen! She, and David, deliver Meals on Wheels and they have both receieved awards for doing so! I am very proud of them.
