Day 24 – National Lockdown Countdown

Has it really only been 4 and a bit days since we closed?  Feels like a month!  Good to socially distance bump into Eileen and Alan J and grandson in Osterley Park yesterday.  The leaves are falling from the trees but there is plenty of space to walk around and the cafe is open for take away hot drinks and biscuits, but you have to stand up to drink as there are no tables or chairs.

After all the hype over the US election, today has been a bit of a slow news day, although the agreement to provide school meals throughout the Christmas holiday period is good.

I saw Father Christmas and assorted reindeer and snowmen outside a house on the London Road at lunchtime, no doubt waiting for the dark to descend so the lights could go on.  I’m not sure it will make the lockdown pass any quicker but at least there will be something cheerful to look at as you go past.

Hopefully Peter and Lyn C will be putting their display up again outside their house.  They raise a fantastic amount of money for cancer support in donations every year.  We’ll let you know when they’ll be ready to view.

Talking of evenings drawing in, here’s the link to the online edition of Inside Bowls which you may like to browse through over a cup of tea or something.
