Well, what can I say? I had such good intentions last year, but life has been hard. I know it’s been hard for everyone, and we are lucky that we didn’t contract the dreaded Covid 19, but neither of us has been in the best of health and although I hoped that this year will be better, there are still serious issues.
In fact, since I care for my husband full time and have a lot of work to do, it’s hardly surprising that even the camera didn’t get a look-in last year. I managed to take it out only once, although I have taken some photos on my phone. Somehow that is not the same for me, and I have not mastered it at all.
Kingston Lacy is a National Trust property in Dorset and always beautiful, but especially so in the autumn. Nowadays my husband can’t walk much so we don’t get to see so many places, but he did manage a short walk to the restaurant and I left him there while I walked down to the Japanese Garden. The colours were gorgeous.
This year so far the camera has not been out and about, but I hope to take more pictures soon as I’m losing the ability to choose what to take and how to take it. Refresher needed! Last year saw me at the hospital far more than I liked with some pretty nasty tests. The results are not as clear as I would have liked so I don’t have as much energy and although I’ve been invited back for more tests I’ve declined the offer as I can’t leave my husband. We do have carers come in a couple of times a week to help but I do most of the work and wouldn’t have it any other way.
Watch this space when I do have time to post and something to say.
