Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Lockdown#2



 Two weeks into our second lockdown and it is sometimes easier than the last one and sometimes more difficult. One difference this time is that we are allowed to go walking with one other person as long as you are outside and social distancing. In my local park is this outdoor table tennis table where I meet up with one friend and we play a few games together. Trying to play when it is windy is almost impossible but if gives us a laugh. Desperate times call for desperate actions!

  2. Nice that you are able to enjoy an activity with a friend. And it looks like you have some nice sunny weather. My sister, my dad, and I used to play some fierce games of table tennis but I haven’t played for years.

  3. I am hopeless even if there is no wind. I've missed your travel tales this year, I am sure as much as you have missed your travel.

  4. It looks like it would be fun. I've never played the game, wind or no wind.

  5. Table tennis or ping pong as we used to call it would be fun to play in a park. Haven't seen any around here though.

  7. What fun, I guess part of lockdown is discovering the things we use to do.

  8. Well that looks like fun. Wish we still had our tennis racquets...there is a tennis court in a nearby park.

  9. It must be good to get outside for a while and especially to see a friend. Hopefully it will stop the transmission.

  10. You are so right ! We are also allowed to go where we want, with one person but it's too cold and humid so we meet again each other to empty our hearts about this situation ! What a boring life !

  11. Hurray for you and your friend!! My husband loved/obsessed table tennis 3 decades ago. Back when our knees were okay.

  12. That was a good find. I'm surprised that there wasn't a queue to play ping pong. Or did you play table tennis?

  14. What a clever way to exercise outdoors, stay sharp, socialize and social distance at the same time!

  15. Life these days is like playing table tennis outdoors!
    Re your comment on my post - We need indoor facilities for cricket as we have 3 months of monsoons when it's just not possible to play cricket outdoors. 😊
