More Doodles In Lockdown

 Going slightly ga ga in 3rd lockdown.  Waiting for vaccine call to turn up.  Some friends have had theirs already.  Too cold to go out . Frosty slippy pavements.  I don't want to fall over. Our old flat iron weight lifting challenge is going well . I have 40 lifts to beat but could only manage 35 yesterday. I need extra porridge!   Hazel was up to 32 I think.  TV highlights have been the excellent doc. about the blues boom in Chicago in the 60's on Sky Arts (Freeview 11 ) and David Copperfield on Blu-ray sent to us by old chums Dick and Cheryl.  Directed by Amando Eanucci ?  Full of great actors and choice moments.  I think we saw it at the cinema a couple of years ago. Also playing a great sci-fi game on PS4 called The Outer Worlds - zapping monsters and bad guys with ray guns - what fun!  Also the odd mail art send out and a collage or two and my day is pretty full.  I expect it to be very similar when lockdown ends!

Walk to River Dane

 Morning walk to the over flowing Dane and the squelchy tracks roundmthe orchard and fishing ponds. Saw three heron and a slinky fox.  They were all too quick for my camera sadly.  You'll just have to believe me!                                                        They promised a fine day but it was a bit drizzly and overcast.

Walk To Lostock

 This mornings frosty walk to Lostock via Hazel's Mom and sister's place to drop off groceries as they are still isolating - not been out for nearly 10 months now!  Hopefully they can get a vaccine jab at some point but doesn't seem likely at the moment.   These steam valve thingies are very sculptural and hiss when you get near them like petulant snakes!

A Walk To The Park

 Early morning wander over the park.  Puddles still frozen and bits of snow clinging to the grass and hedges.  A few dog walkers but we managed to avoid them.  First day of the 3rd lockdown.  This government are so slow on the uptake it's become a joke now. Useless bunch of no hopers!  All that money and private education obviously wasted on their feeble minds as they stagger from one disaster to the next - waffling  and lying - grrrrrrr!

January 2nd

 This mornings Sunday walk to the River Dane and the still snowy orchard.  Most had melted away but quite a frost this morning and the fishing ponds were solid ice!   Avoided a few dog walkers and joggers - keen to dodge their clouds of steaming breath!  You can see why lots of people now are wearing masks on their daily walks what with a more virilant strain of covid doing the rounds - perhaps we should do the same?  It would keep your face warm too in this harsh weather.  Back home to do some doodling and make some mince pies.
