The Days Of Our Years...

A big party had been mooted for my 70th. It would probably have involved everyone dressing up as pirates. But then the pandemic happened.

There was a lot of Zooming. Kind things were said. The final Zoom developed into a game of Pictionary- which the kids love.

I've always thought of 70 as one of the more significant milestones. Psalm 90 will be to blame for that. "The days of our years are threescore years and ten..."

The first thing I read this morning was an interview with Judy Dench. She's sharing a house with her grandson and fretting at not being able to work because of lockdown. Judy Dench is 86.
