Before I reached the bridge, I realised that a) I hadn't posted the letter and b) I didn't want to have to go so close to two other people. So I doubled back, meaning to post it in the box next to the Sospan cafe, only to discover that that box is out of use. The slot is taped shut, presumably because it's too close to the outdoor tables the Sospan cafe has put out on the pavement. So I had to walk up to the Old Post Office (now just the sorting office) and posted the letter there. I was now much nearer to the Co-op than to Eurospar, so I did my top-up shop there instead.
We have some good news here about the vaccine roll out. Two of my elderly friends have now had their first dose and I've heard of other elderly people and also health care workers receiving their vaccinations. I'd been hearing on the news that 10% of the UK population have been vaccinated, but now I actually know people who have had the jab, it's easier to believe.
Language learning update: I'm still plodding through the Spanish Say Something in Spanish challenges. I have struggled my way through challenge 16 and will repeat challenge 15 next before attempting challenge 16 again. Audio only is not the best way of learning for me, but I've seen so many people succeed with this method and Say Something in Welsh really helped my fluency, therefore I will persevere. I may start using some flashcards as well though to see if that will help the phrases to stick.
