Wilting the Pansies

Perking the Pansies was to be off-air for a while. After a so-so summer weather-wise, two cancelled getaways and three jabs to keep us out of intensive care, we’d had enough of samey days and dreary skies; the pansies were wilting. So a pre-festive perk with a shot of vitamin D in sunny Tenerife was on the cards. Well, we hoped for sunny. You definitely take your chances in the Canary Islands at this time of year, and we were prepared to pack the pac-a-macs with the factor 30.

Alas it was not to be. We’ve been scuppered by omicron, the latest incarnation of COVID19. It’s far better to be down than out – so we’re staying put. But this is what we’re missing and it’s made us pig sick.

  1. Awe Jack, you must both be climbing the walls. Let’s hope some common sense prevails and we can just learn to live with the virus. Merry Christmas x


  2. Dear god I understand. It’s hard to renovate ourselves in the same four walls. Personally I’m finding YouTube exercise videos helpful. Zumba anyone?


  3. Sorry. I’ve canceled SO many plans the last two years.
    I finally have a trip planned to go back to Bahía Kino on the cost of Mexico on the Sea of Cortez. It’s a 6-1/2 hour drive from here, but due to many factors including Covid, I haven’t been back in nearly three years. I used to go five to six times each winter. And since I’m driving, and will stay in a separate little casita, it’s Covid safe. Can’t wait!
