Monday thankfulness

Some things I'm thankful for (in no particular order):

1) childhood holidays in Wales that prepared me for confinement
2) also Saturday gilets jaunes riots that did the same
3) good internet that allows three of us to be skyping and zooming in different rooms at the same time
4) soap
5) Hilary Mantel's "The Mirror and the Light" on the BBC Radio 4 iPlayer app
6) morning songs from Olly Knight
7) morning talks from the Deeside gang
8) a family that gets on OK together
9) a pleasant and light flat
10 ) a supermarket within easy reach with good stocks
11) a president that told us to read and reconnect with the essentials of our culture
12) friends on twitter and facebook who encourage me and make me laugh
13) TV series and films to watch by internet (except I can't be bothered yet)
14) Operas, concerts and talks on music by internet (and these are great!)
15) Zoom that enables us to continue to work to establish the church here
16) snow! (it's snowing)
17) keeping in touch with the family in the UK by Facebook and email
18) that our more vulnerable folk are all OK
19) all those people gallantly and determinedly continuing to do essential work while demannding the best protection possible
