So today is the start of Lent; that period in the Christian year when people often think about giving things up or saying extra prayers and so forth. It is the count-down to Easter, the time when we can say that spring has really begun. This year I don’t much feel like giving something up and cannot raise the enthusiasm for taking on some extra task. It has been a difficult stretch as far as my fibromyalgia goes; cold, damp and rain don’t help the aching muscles.
I know! I’ll give up expecting the joiner to arrive.
Perhaps I should mention that the plumber came today, the radiator that came yesterday turned out to be the wrong size. However, he did install new kitchen taps. The radiator should be replaced by the end of the week. Life in Dalamory is never dull.
