There were some gremlins in the blog this week I think – last Monday’s post went missing and I only noticed yesterday, and when I found it, it published itself! So now you know what’s coming up last week… Anyway, … Continue reading

The weather has been a little kinder the past week or so, at least, it has remained mostly in the plus figures which is a start. There has even been some sunshine and I’ve managed to get the washing outside … Continue reading

I can hardly believe that it is March already. If all goes well restrictions will slowly start to lift over the next two months, though it all seems quite far away still. In other good news – I got my … Continue reading

I was going to say ‘we’re at the end of January’ but I now realise it will be the start of February when this is published. It has probably been a miserable month for a lot of us; cold and … Continue reading

It’s another Monday but it doesn’t seem like we are getting any closer to the end of this particular lock down. Still, there’s hope somewhere ahead, even if it’s further away than we thought it would be as we celebrated … Continue reading
