It’s been quite a fun week. I’ve been out quite a lot and been to all my usual things, but part of me wonders how long that will go on for in the current situation. We shall see.
I’ve been going swimming as usual: 50 lengths probably about 3 times a week, which in this pool is a little short of a mile each time I go. I do love our local pool and it’s a fine looking building. Sadly though the council have been a bit neglectful on the maintenance. I guess, as I can’t remember the last time I saw anyone spectating in this pool, that the seating area isn’t a high priority.
Yoga is my other main form of exercise. We went out after one of my yoga sessions to celebrate a classmate’s birthday. This is a cup of apple and cinnamon tea in a local cafe that serves middle eastern food and drink. Lots of talk about the news, but no one really knows how things will shape up. It looks like H’s school trip at Easter (to the first world war battlefields of France and Belgium) will be cancelled which is a shame, but it seems a bit counter intuitive that he can still go into school every day. Happy to cancel anything really if it keeps people safe.
I went on a ghost tour this week. It was in the underground tunnels of a local swimming baths which is well known amongst ghost hunters. It’s a building that was extensively used during world war two and it is built on top of a black death mass grave. Apparently they have a whole list of workmen and contractors who refuse to go down there to work, as there have been some very strange experiences. Apart from the ghost walks they regularly do longer ghost hunts where you can stay down there overnight. This was some wartime graffiti from a room that was used as an air raid shelter.
