Sue has left a comment on my Christmas slideshow, saying she is worried at seeing no new posts, and hoping that I am well. I have left a comment there for her but am posting here too, in case I am worrying anyone else. It is a great privilege, but also something of a burden, albeit a loving one, to know that people notice when you fail to blog for a while, and worry on your behalf.
I have in fact posted nine times since Christmas, the last one on 2nd February. I wonder if Sue is missing some blogs. That said, I must admit that it is difficult to find the spirit to write just now. The winter is so tedious and depressing, and the MMI and BSF*, that are the lot of many of us in old age, seem so much harder to bear.
Today, however, when I went out to do the 15-20 minutes walking that I aim for daily - but do not achieve! - there was a distinctly springlike feeling in the air. Most of the snow where I live has melted now, and the trees were full of robins tweeting away. Blue skies and birdsong, two of life's great blessings.
