A short dash

Tigger is unfortunately a little under the weather and we have have stayed at home today except for a short dash to the supermarket this morning.

According to the weather forecast, it was supposed to be raining but in fact the sun was shining intermittently. I took the above photo to show how hazy the air was but I’m not sure it shows.

The sun was shining becomingly when I photographed the Farmers’ Market which was looking as lively as usual.

Sainsbury’s was averagely busy for a Sunday morning but as, again, we had relatively little to buy, we soon had the job done.

Chapel Market was its usual lively self though these days, the stalls form two groups with a wide space between them whereas, before the pandemic struck, the whole area was full of stalls with no spaces. It seems that a number of stallholders have ceased trading. Will they ever return?

I bought our usual coffee at Mercer’s and had to wait a while because there were several orders ahead of mine. I used the time to take a photo of the interior.

Tigger has been in contact with the people at the office (they all have MS Teams on their phones and keep in touch even outside office hours) and they have told her to stay at home tomorrow. Much as I am glad to have her company, I would rather that she recover and be well again. Perhaps tomorrow will bring an improvement.

And so to today’s novelty photo. Can you guess what it is?

Am I under water?

No, I am not under water but lying in bed looking up at the ceiling. We have a projector which throws moving light on the ceiling. We switch it on at bedtime and it switches itself off after a couple of hours. It provides enough light to see by but not to keep you awake.
