This is the view from the side window in Tam's bedroom. She is glad she chose it. As you can see, still bitterly cold here and snow on the far hills (I think this is Carneddau).
Yesterday I had my Covid Vaccination. I didn't have to go far - just down to the showground and it was all very professionally done. I had a sore arm last night, took two Paracetamol and then needed an early night, if only to get in a warm bed as I felt a bit chilled. Today I have a sore back, but it's worth it for the protection and the move back towards normality.
Keith an I started the day with a short walk to account for half an hour (staying upright, due to medication he takes once a week). It was chilly, but it freed up my back which has been VERY painful all day. I am putting it down to the vaccination. Painkillers aren't touching it (and it's the part of my back which has suffered recently with all the lifting). I hope it will have eased a bit tomorrow.
We pottered around today, went to drop a prescription request off at the Dr's, got the paper and a screwdriver and some painting hangers to put up some photos this afternoon. We now have two pictures put up in those daft stick-on frames on the walls. Some more will go up around the room tomorrow. Then I'll take a photo.
I have to say, we are now GREAT fans of the shutters - in such bitterly cold weather they really shut the cold out and I can see why a previous owner had them fitted. When I see houses on tv where they don't have any curtains or blinds, I think they must be mad. We have a window without the blind in the kitchen and that is about to have one ordered, and another for the glazed top half of the door behind our dairy table. Both let a lot of cold air in with this Siberian weather.
Above and below: Tam and I needed a walk late afternoon and here are some of the photos taken within half a mile of our new home. We walked a mile out and back again. We are SO fortunate. It eased my back but I daren't sit down for too long at the moment.
