Esperanto. Nothing remotely practical or usable. I rather like seeing which words are influenced by which languages. Still half intending to learn Norwegian & do want to refresh my French at some point.

And I'm still not halfway through the course. But hey, keeps my mind a bit active. I like learning languages - never go anywhere to use them, but it's a fun challenge.

513 day Duolingo streak. Started around the time lockdowns commenced.

So true.

Ahhh, great to see art on the walls. 👍

You have Council people mowing grass!! Round here it's nearly waist-high in places. Allegedly to increase "habitat" for animals (when we are definitely rural, surrounded by farms, forest and heath). Nothing to do with saving money.

Excellent. It’s absolutely vital for me. I have reduced shoulder mobility after having two frozen shoulders, plus very tight calf muscles, for some unknown reason. I also get fibromyalgia-like flares every so often, so this kind of massage pretty much keeps me moving comfortably! It’s also nice & relaxing - mostly. Some awkward manoeuvres to release joints, but not too bad.

It was a lovely day - until about 2 hours ago when a Canadian friend of mine messaged to say she has breast cancer. There’s always some bad stuff to bring me back down to Earth with a bump. ☹

Just had my regular full-body remedial massage. Next, shower, then some online crossword solving over Zoom, followed by coffee at a friend's. Almost life as we knew it.

It certainly would!
