Today is day 5 of Covid and day 5 of an altogether extraordinary period of good weather.   I am taking it as a sign of my recovery that I am actually beginning to be annoyed about the fact that we are incarcerated rather than out in the Wicklow hills.   The previous days I was just too wiped out to care about anything at all.

Bev is also still testing positive but even though she started on the journey after me, her T line is showing some tentative signs of fading already.   Further proof of my female constitution theory.

So yet again the day was spent in the flat.   Val ventured out to the shops to replenish essentials and came back armed not only with a loaf of bread and some milk, but also a jigsaw, of all things.   I normally can’t be bothered with jigsaws as I can’t see the point, and can think of about a thousand things I’d rather do.   But I must admit it was an entertaining enough way to pass some time, and made a change from standing on the balcony looking at the flowers down in the garden below.   Though it did make me think just how desperate times must have become when doing a charity shop jigsaw of a tortoise – which probably has half its pieces missing anyway – is the highlight of your day.

So – lets see what tomorrow brings.   Maybe the pink line fade will start soon.

Typical.   The best week of weather we have ever had for our walking holiday.   Its just a shame we are not actually on it. Curiously, all the plants in the garden immediately below us are mottled white and green.   Either the gardener deliberately set out to create some sort of variegated effect and chose his specimens accordingly, or they have been sprayed with a weedkiller that has beached them.   I rather suspect the latter
You know the situation is getting desperate when you start doing jigsaws about tortoises.   You can see how interesting Pete is finding it.
