The prospect of face-to-face gaming hoved* into view the other day, when the eldest announced he had bought a train ticket to come darn sarf for a few days. Will see if he can fit it in. We should be reasonably safe from contamination as he is frequently tested at work (at a virus testing centre!) and the weather is set fair for Friday so maybe a game outside is possible.
I may also get a solo game in this afternoon as I’m enjoying a day off, using up the last of 2020’s leave allocation before I lose it.
The first task this afternoon though is to finalise details, and place the order for the war room/office/yoga studio/teenage hangout den.
To add to the positive feeling at Schloß Nundanket, the pool re-opened this week so I’m slowly getting up to speed with swimming again and cycling. I bought some porridge at the caff, but as you’re not allowed to eat it there I stopped off at a little beach on the Thames.
|The water looks tempting, and not as cold as I expected. But still too early in the year!|
* does this word get used in any other context? It seems a bit like ‘wend’ as in ‘I shall wend my way’, wend being the present tense form of went, before we adopted ‘go’.
