To town at the crack of sparrows for an NHS appointment, all well socially distanced and cared about.
I was surprisingly relaxed and, for a change, left feeling “normal” (well, as normal as I ever am about anything these days).
In a good mood, I decided to go for a wander down Commercial Street, to see how, when and if I could even contemplate doing any Christmas shopping ever in the next few months.
I am trying hard to support local shops.
I feel it is very important.
I think there is a “Neepie Lantern” competition along the Street and there are some inspired entries.
I laughed out loud, and received a few strange looks, at this one.
I even popped into the local wool shop to see how my little field was doing. It needs a refill.
And then I had a quick drool at their beautiful gloves. The trouble with potential-Christmas shopping is that I want everything for myself. Possibly not the point.
And this is my prize winning neep. Specsavers at their best. I hope it wins.
Home again and out for a ride while we had a break in the weather. It all starts again tomorrow. Rain for the rest of our lives. Still, today was beautiful while it lasted and I’m feeling more positive about my Chrimble shopping.
