😂 And why ask a question that is ridiculously easy to find the answer to.

The one thing I’m permitted to do every day in this pesky lockdown - go out for exercise, aka walk the dog. Weather forecast for the week: rain. Not making life any more fun. ☹

At the moment, mostly yes. The prospect of another two or more months of this really doesn't appeal. Nor do further restrictions, although given I go out only to shop for food, or to walk the dog, there isn't much more they could do to me. Wearing a mask in the open air is a rule I would ignore, should it come in (which is my main worry) as when I'm out it's for exercise, so anxiety, panic attacks & asthma make it unwise.

Aaand another day in lockdown begins, with threats of tighter restrictions and news that people are still having raves, house parties, gambling dens etc.

I've been shouted at (again) for simply walking along the pavement and not getting out of someone else's way quickly enough. Because clearly I have to do that, it's not something that should be mutual.

One of my friends messaged yesterday & it sounds like she's really struggling with this lockdown. She has a husband, but I think not seeing her girls and the grandchildren is really hurting this time around. I'm hoping I can provide some kind of support for her just by being a friend to talk to.

The dog has now definitely had more haircuts than me (my last two appointments have not happened because of lockdowns). At least she looks adorably cute.

And it's raining. 😡

I hope you are all coping with the various weather conditions and lockdown regimes in your corners of the globe.

Only a teeny paddle. She doesn't do swimming.

Five miles of sandy beach. Freezing cold, but glorious sunshine. 34f31e0f-7e90-41c7-b3d7-f5ae7f67858975a54b7c-65e7-47e6-a73f-7828b64971fae0fe8751-5d80-4364-9aff-f8e489368c9274b1a858-6dbd-48c8-bf0e-21a38de913f9

She doesn’t, no. Not something I’ve considered yet. It’s not usually so cold where I live and she can always skip the odd walk.
