My youngest daughter sent me a message and said she'd managed to get me some vanilla extract so I said I would collect it from her near her doorstep. I cycled out to my daughter's today and on the way picked up some things for my granddaughters, some fruit snacks which they enjoy.
I arrived at my daughter's, sent her a message on my phone so as not to alert my granddaughters and she came to the door and shut it. I left the stuff I'd brought for her on a windowsill and she then managed to hand the vanilla extract from a distance. We were chatting for a while and then I heard her front door open so I quickly hid out of sight and heard my eldest granddaughter's voice. I then started chatting again and a little while later the door opened again and I hid and it was my youngest granddaughter. This felt very strange, not right and actually kind of upsetting to hear both my granddaughters and not be able to see them, give them a cuddle and play with them. This I am finding is the hardest part of these very strange and difficult times.
No doubt by tomorrow I will have perked up again when I go on another bike ride. Another thing I'm finding hard is the fact that we are now allowed to drive and there's no limit on exercise, I feel this has left this open to abuse, I'm not comfortable with this.
Anyway, back to the positive, I cycled just over 24.5 miles. The exercise is what's keeping me going as well as the good weather we've had.
Please stay safe and well all.
