Mornin’ All

How to begin? I have been feeling… The world is now full of…. It has all been a bit much recently. I am also REALLY tired of hearing about and thinking about how it has all been a bit much recently. So I have avoided writing anything more than a short shopping list or desperately…

Admitting defeat

I have failed. Below is my entire windowsill cress harvest. Just to put your minds at rest – the remaining massively out of date seeds will be composted and so take their parts in that circle of life malarkey. Someone, whose mouse and keyboard privileges may be revoked soon, has already ordered some more…FREE SALAD!…

The new normal

I have read a lot of articles recently about how things will change after all of our lockdowns are over.

Whose idea was this?

As explained in previous posts I am experimenting upon myself and it is starting to wear a little. I am still pretty sure it will have benefits at some point…just not yet. I changed my charity shop choice for this one. I closed my eyes and picked this CD from a branch of Barnardos, rather…

Another musical voyage

Following on from my decision to experiment, musically, on myself (here) I once again ventured through the door of the small nearby charity shop to choose CDs. This time I had company, who found it highly amusing that I managed to pick out Something To Remember by Madonna (an album of ballads) and Spirit of…
