Still haven't heard a new date for my vaccine, which is made me feel a bit down as I was happy to get the appointment and now feel a bit dejected. As I don't have any control over it I am putting it to the back of my mind and getting on day by day, even though some friends have had theirs. Suffolk has only vaccinated 36 % of over 80s the lowest in the country .
Several sunny days this week and I have walked along the river Gipping to Hazel wood and yesterday walked through the churchyard and round in a circle via Vicarage lane and Ship lane. I have been to the fish and chip shop nearby and was happy when I was told to wait in my car and they would wave to me when it was cooked. They did and very nice it was too. Poppy and I spent a short while in the back garden tidying up one of the borders then we spent the afternoon in the sunny lounge she was snoozing and I read the paper and talked for an hour to my s. son Robert who I haven't seen since the summer. I did not let Poppy out until it was dark and so this morning when I drew the curtains discovered that the fence at the bottom of the garden had been replaced during the afternoon. A surprise, and also I was surprised and pleased to have 2 parcels this week. My daughter sent me some books as she knows how I am missing the library and my other daughter sent me one of her beautiful handmade cards and also 2 twin packs of Hartleys sugar free jelly chrystals which she found in her local Coop and I have not been able to get from Morrisons order since before Christmas! so I will be making several bowls of jelly with fruit in and some whisked up with yoghurt. I do like to have a dessert with my meals. I am off to sort out the fridge and cupboards as Morrisons are delivering, tomorrow. Poppy loves to poke her nose into everything and she will get into any cupboard if I don't watch her. Stay safe and warm this weekend love from your friends Poppy and Val
