Look what arrived in the post yesterday!
A lovely homemade, get-well-soon card from Cathy. I absolutely love anything handmade and this really cheered me up. Do you think she knows how much I love pink!
I have Covid, Cathy has had Covid so it has been lovely to have someone of my vintage to compare notes with.
I have not been too bad, mainly lacking in energy. I am pretty sure I caught the virus at a family wedding, as my son, son-in-law, daughter-in-law and several other guests all got it at the same time. And it was SUCH a magical day!
She had smarter shoes for the formal bit.
I was so pleased to be able to wear the same jacket, skirt and fascinator that I wore to her wedding 16 years ago.
so was the cake
Which I was glad to be able to taste at the time.
With Covid, I briefly lost my sense of taste, which was very strange.
I could taste salt, sweetness, bitterness and spicyness in curry and mustard, but all with no flavour. The colours, texture, and temperature became very noticeable.
Milky is silky. Bananas were the weirdest, crisps were luxury!
My taste is gradually returning but I still can’t smell anything (especially not something burning!).
How are you all?
