On The Step

Richard was on his own today. He spent time

continuing to fit the bedroom wardrobe, concentrating on trimming, on the rails, and on the handles.

The first of the above images includes him

working on the safer step he has built to create an easier drop from the former dressing room to the bedroom.

This afternoon Jackie and I visited the Milford G.P. surgery where we received our Covid booster vaccinations.

Dark indigo clouds loomed over the Isle of White, The Needles, and the lighthouse beside which the Jesus sunbeams penetrated the canopy.

This evening we dined at Lal Quilla where the service and atmosphere was as friendly as ever, despite the fact that with the staff all masked I can never be sure whether I know them or not. My main course was the hot, sweet, and sour Chicken Jaljala while Jackie’s was the milder Chicken Boona. We shared pilau rice, and egg paratha and saag bhaji, both drinking Kingfisher.


    1. Thanks very much, Liz. It changed so much while I was getting the camera ready that we gave up on it. A few hundred yards away it changed again so I had another go.

  1. Things are changing for good. Covid boosters are becoming a reality now, all thanks to the Madarins of the Muddle Kingdom. Sea photos are great. They are notoriously difficult to capture.

  2. Cool Jesus beams photo. It has an interesting overall symmetry and with a well defined horizon giving the illusion the end of the earth.

  3. My dad was a carpenter, so I love to watch carpenters at work. The handles on the wardrobe are very graceful. Good idea to get your boosters. I felt more confident after I got mine.

  4. Booster shots are being talked about here, but not yet a reality – perhaps next year. It is pleasing to know that you both not only got out to enjoy some interesting scenery, but ‘out-out’ to enjoy someone else’s cooking.

  5. Wonderful work, Richard…even wonderful-er smile! šŸ™‚
    Love the wardrobe handles!
    Glad you got boosted! We got boosted last week! I had a sore arm for 2 days. Hubby felt no ill effects at all. šŸ™‚
    Gorgeous sky show! In that last photo…I always called such sky scenes Jesus Is Coming Now clouds! šŸ˜‰
    (((HUGS))) šŸ™‚

  6. I read this earlier and was certain Iā€™d commented! I must learn the difference between thinking of a comment and typing it! ?

    Richard looks very happy at his work and the wardrobes are looking good.

    Sophie once did a lovely drawing for my RE lesson of Jesus sunbeams, her interpretation of the ascension. Iā€™m glad you included the photo.

  7. With Jackie’s smile and now Richard’s smile lighting up the blog, Derrick, we are very lucky followers. Who can help but to smile back in return! Glad you’ve had your boosters. My other half had his today, I have a wait a few more weeks.

  8. Glad you got your boosters! Wardrobe is looking lovely. The handles are beautiful! Have a wonderful weekend! <3 Sending love your way! <3
