The library has recently reopened after almost 5 months. Just before lockdown they had increased the number of books you could borrow from eight to twenty five. I took advantage of this and just before they had to close I took out the maximum. I mainly chose children's books because I knew I would be home schooling.This week I was able to return them but you have to order a book in advance if you wish to borrow anything. The other option was a lucky dip. A pre chosen selection under headings such as romance, thrillers, crime etc. I chose general fiction and when was pleasantly surprised when got home and opened the bag.
In the evening I met up with a couple of friends for a socially distanced open air cinema.
It took place in the grounds of Leeds castle in Kent. Although you can see it very well from this photo, the backdrop to the screen was the castle.
At the beginning of the week I went with my daughter and my two grandchildren to the Kent coast. The weather was perfect as it wasn't too hot and as the forecast was rain there were no crowds. Fortunately it didn't rain and they loved playing in the sea and the sand. We stayed overnight in a hotel which had observed all the rules and I felt more than happy to stay there. The only downside was in the evening when I unpacked my bag and I discovered that my grandson (2yrs old) had put his drinking cup into my bag and soaked my camera! Far too late to remedy the situation. I did have accidental damage insurance for the camera as just 3 years ago I ruined my last camera when I dropped in in mud and on buying this one I took out added insurance. Sadly the insurance ran out in April and it was non renewable.
