We didn’t go out at all yesterday - well, I went out into the garden for about 5 minutes, but I mean really “out” - and I wonder if we need to get out for our walk whatever the weather as we are both feeling a little lethargic today.  

Mr. HCB has just gone out to do some work in the greenhouse, but it’s cold and wet this morning, so I don’t think he will be out there for too long - I was right - be was back within five minutes and said it was only 10C in there, so I think he will be starting his new birthday jigsaw puzzle.  Actually if it's that cold, I don't think we will be going out - in fact, we still have the heating on!

As we probably won’t be going out today, I thought I would put my warm, polar bear jammies on and then I began to think that I could do a selfie for Silly Saturday.  A couple of weeks ago, I ordered some wool from Lovecrafts, a company I can thoroughly recommend, and when it came, this envelope whispered “Don’t throw me away, you could use this for a Blip!”  

So here am I, relaxing in my recliner chair, watching Saturday Kitchen Live - something I have never watched before, and being joyful - I have to say that the selfie stick has come in very useful again and I am so glad I treated myself to this.

It is hard to stay joyful in these present circumstances, but we are doing our best.  I have just had a text from our next door neighbour because she saw our paper bins outside the door and wondered if we were OK - so it’s things like that that make us feel grateful and joyful.

“Joy does not simply happen to us.
     We have to choose joy
          and keep choosing it
               every day.”
