It seems that Covid-19 is getting very close to home. Literally. I suspect that it won’t be long before one of us goes down with a cold and then we will all be in isolation. But, unless I am actually ill I see no reason to not go for a walk.

I went out for my usual walk this morning. The footpath on my normal route was partially blocked for maintenance meaning I had to cross the road. Didn’t like that, so changed my route for the return trip. Only the Mon St Michell and the gosport ferries around this morning, although I heard the Janey W, a bunkering (refuelling) ship buzzing around the links spans in the harbour. There are problems with GB3IW, the Isle of Wight repeater, so the #Breakfastclub has moved on to Zello, a mobile phone app. It’s fiddly, and I don’t really like it but it works. Although I admit, the sound quality for everybody, is very good, whereas on mother radio it can sometimes be a bit hit and miss – but that’s the fun of it. It was alsodifficult doing my weather report, as I really needed three hands. But I managed to a degree.

Talking of the weather, 7.5C, and a bit of a breeze (lightbulb moment, breezy Bill – don’t worry, it’s a radio thing) pressure was almost normal at 1025mb, 30.25 inches of mercury. A grey sky with uneven clouds and no blue. It was cold, so as usual, I appreciated being wrapped up.

In these times, i think it’s important to be as normal as possible, that mean even as to what you do indoors. The panic buyers are being very selfish, even if I understand their motives. I just wish the news would find something positive to report on, rather than focussing on the negative, what about all the self help groups that are being set up? Frustrating.

Still, I wish you all well, and hope you had

a good day.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
