Without rocking the boat #ramble

It’s Sunday morning and so once again I’ll share my thoughts with you. I’m on day 66 of my lockdown. I might go out today and take a few photographs. I’ve stayed in all through the 66 days except for going to post a letter. I had an order for my art cards from Buckinghamshire so I popped out to post them. This morning I have done the daily challenge from 64 Million Artists. The challenge was to say thank you, so I did a graphic to say thank you to all those people who live their lives without stirring up trouble, without making a lot of noise and without rocking the boat. This is my graphic:

Without rocking the boat

Without rocking the boat

Some people can’t go a day without rocking the boat and stirring up trouble. They have no compassion for other people and are just constantly hostile. The attitude that they are always right leads to constant arguments with people and they acquire new friends only to drive them away. They never accept it is their fault so have to move on to some other poor sod to make friends with. Such people never learn. I’ll avoid them from now on.

Little pleasures

Little pleasures are getting me through this lockdown. I put a lot of effort into creating meals that look good, as well as taste good and I take time to enjoy the occasional bar of free-from chocolate and the daily can of beer. I’ve been having morning and afternoon tea with blackcurrant jam on toast. I get some pleasure from watching the wildlife in the garden and in creating my collages and writing my poems. These are little pleasures that make this time worthwhile.

Stock market

Watching the stock market has made things interesting too. I still have some holdings and I have bought some shares in Barclays. I’m considering buying more shares in Lloyds too. Their shares are sub-30p now and I would expect them to go to £1 in the next few years. They are closing more branches and they have a good online app now. I use the Barclays app and the Lloyds app. The Barclays one is easier to use and log in to but the Lloyds one is good too.

The future

I am having difficulty imagining what the future might be like. The odds of catching the virus are dropping all the time and I can improve my odds by avoiding crowded places which I tend to do anyway. Those people who can’t seem to go through life without rocking the boat are the ones most likely to flout the rules and catch the virus so I’ll try to avoid them too.

Life will go on and I’ll just make the best of it. If you would like to subscribe to my blog just enter your email address in one of the spaces provided. You can also follow me on Twitter for links to the latest posts. Those links are also on my Facebook page.
