Hello my fellow friends in adversity, the thought of 3 months self isolation seems a bit daunting but my Wife and I are in our second week. How to keep busy and occupied?
Well I had long promised myself to repaint our Hallway, stairway and landings after many years of our 5 grandchildren giving the surfaces more than fair wear and tear! So I have begun and the first thing was to agree the colour scheme with the Minister of the interior; I must have caught her off guard as she agreed without too much prevarication! Getting the paint proved easier than I thought as we could order it on line from a well known store chain and it was delivered in rapid time. I think climbing ladders counts as useful exercise too for a 75 year old! Mind you having a dodgy set of lungs means I get plenty of breaks so am catching up on my reading too which is great.
This was all well and good when the weather was none too kind outside but just to make life awkward the Sun has decided to beam on us; I was not expecting that! So now the lawnmower beckons too. I think I will do the front to start just so people know we are alive and well. Our village and rural community are great and one young lady has kindly offered to do our shopping for us and deliver to the door, normally we would have her in for a nice cup of coffee but now that is a no, no.
Our daughters live far away so we are keeping in contact by telephone but if any of you out there know how to put Whats App on my Samsung phone I would appreciate help as it tells me Screen overlay detected. It says to turn off the screen overlay from Settings >Apps but when I go to settings I can't find Apps! We could then see our grandchildren and enjoy their company on screen, this is our only frustration in all this. Can anyone help please?
Do take care all, now time for some more painting.
