We are not dead yet. There is a paucity of posts at the moment because there is very little to post about. I doubt you are very interested to know whether or not it is raining. You know that we have Government Ministers who tell lies and/or demonstrate their incompetency, and the fact that we are still isolating ourselves will hardly come as a surprise. The world however chugs along without us. Our local Hermes family deliver parcels speedily, efficiently and – if we see them – a cheery wave or three.
And just to show what I mean, here is a photo of the neighbour’s house and their new extension. Work has progressed beyond that which you see, but only inasmuch that the corners of the roof and the ridge are now largely completed. It seems bigger than we supposed from the plans, but no doubt we shall get used to it. It will be nice for the owners, who have a new baby (not so new now !) when it is all finished and habitable and when we see people coming and going, and lights on in there at night.
