I went out to meet a friend this morning for coffee.
While I last saw my friend just a month ago, the really good thing about starting to move around after COVID again is seeing people who I *haven’t* seen for the last eighteen months. Last time out, I bumped into one person walking his dogs. Today I saw another. Both of them probably fit into that “vulnerable” category, so it was great to see them still alive and kicking.
Then I went on to meet my friend. Funny enough, he has just been over to France, too – he had the wonderful idea of watching the Tour de France climb the idyllic Mont Ventoux, exactly the kind of vacation I used to take. I’ve whined a bit about the hoops I had to jump through to go over, but he actually missed one of his crossings because of them!
