    @True Blue & @Granny_grump_ Thanks for your carefully constructed advice.

    Let’s deal with the covid issue first, me and me’s are on the extremely vulnerable list if you read my profile you will see why, next mentally I exist in the 11 known dimensions and six realities hence the me and me’s, sometimes one or the other of me goes wandering. Next again I have a few hobbies, making childrens furniture and outdoor toys and planters, learning how to play the keyboard or as I call it plinky plonky, walking, reading and physics and riding my motorcycle. But my biggest hobby is causing chaos and mayhem which me and me’s hope brings a smile to peoples faces. Treat my posts as an trip too the absurd view on life and I hope you smile.
    Once again thanks for your advice.

    Thanks, health issue is just an ongoing part of my life, it’s a case of just roll with the punches and smile. There are always many people in a worse position than me.

    Alf, my daughter told me at the weekend, those with impaired immunity and those with white cell problems like myself should get a fourth booster to give them extra protection.
    It was the ones on the shielded list who are no longer shielded.

    The local church has been told from this Sunday, no masks, no distancing, back to normal as per PM instructions.
    Ironical the ministers wife had all the older children at the manse last Sunday and one went down with Omicron next day.

    I know for a fact doctors won't be throwing their masks away!

    Hello Lindisfel
    Your doctor daughter is correct, me and me’s have had 3 full jabs and will be due a booster in a couple of months, a fellow transplant patient had a 4th or booster jab a day or so ago.
    I shall still be shielding and wearing a mask.

    Fbg 6.5

    Blinking cold yesterday.

    Spent 4 separate 15 mins in the garden trying to do a job, but then came back to recover under the electric blanket in bed...
    So many dull grey days, what my mother used to call gas oven days...as in the Simon&Garfunkel song A Most Peculiar Man....

    There was a brightly coloured small bird in my garden yesterday, but the sparrows were attacking it. It had an orange breast. I went out but the flying and acrobatics was so fast, I could neither see it properly, nor catch it.

    I need sun, so, I painted a sunset in iPastel.
    But the weather app still says dark clouds all day again...

    Keep the curtains shut today. Turn on the fairy lights. Go on Google Earth, and find blue skies and sun. I am currently wending my way (virtually) up towards Mount Fuji...

    Time for a cuppa...and a bit more of Mount Fuji...
    Enjoy your morning cuppa!

    Beautiful sunset. All those little details of the trees along that fence line. Smashing. Mind how you go up Mount Juji - it get’s cold on top.

    Morning all

    I spoke too soon. The noisy neighbours were at it again yesterday building-work-wise, They seem nice people with really funny little children who should be moving in soon. I think they are Muslim, so a tin of Quality Street will probably be more suitable than a gift of wine.

    FBG 7.2 mmo/lt at 0655, which is a hybrid mean of a 7.7 mess and a 6.7 retest.

    Have a great day.
