Cooked up a  batch of beany veggie chilli for the freezer today - a tasty winter warmer.  

My pal J and one of our nephews have fallen foul of Covid. J has been poorly but R is not too unwell, as seems to be the case with younger people.  It's hard not to feel it's closing in.  Almost 180,000 new cases were reported.  The Covid rules for overseas travel were lightened - it will no longer be necessary to take a PCR test on return to the UK, only a lateral flow.

Having missed Nomadland at the cinema last year we eventually watched it last night.  It's the story of a woman in her sixities taking to a nomadic life in a camper van after losing her job and house in the 2008 recession.  It gives a glaring insight into what I found to be a very tough life of living on the road and going from job to job.   It won the Oscar for best film and Frances McDormand won the Oscar for best actress.
