It’s been a fairly successful week walking, Apart from Saturday, I’ve managed to get out for a walk. There were a couple of days towards the end of the week where I felt it necessary to wear my full weather coat because it might rain, and also, it is better at keeping the wind out, I was about to go out on Saturday, but as I was preparing to go, the hail stones started. They then became intermittent for the rest of the day, and to be honest, I just couldn’t be bothered. Isn’t that naughty?
We didn’t go out with the intention of meeting up with anybody, but as you do, we saw a few people to say hello to as we were out, which was nice. And then there was a chap behind Trinity Church who was feeding the birds. Perhaps Durrito chips isn’t the best bird food, but they didn’t seem to be objecting at all, even grabbing them whilst in the air. We spoke to the chap, he feeds them regularly, and it was clear that the birds were happy to get quite close to him.
I’m wondering how Covid-19 and the lockdowns have affected you? I must admit, I’m not enamoured of the idea of mixing with a crowd of people whether that is in a hall or out in the open. So when out, I make a point of staying away from people, even to the point of moving away from them if they encroach on my personal space, which has got quite a bit bigger in the last year.
Having said that though, It is getting to the point where I almost crave the random conversations when I’m out. I won’t deliberately start them when I’m out, but if somebody asks me a question, I am more than happy to answer. It all makes for an interesting walk.
