Mists and mellow…

Traditionally (I believe) Spring is the season of new beginnings and fresh starts, but for me it is the Autumn that brings those things. Cold, clean air that is moved along by gusts full of orange leaves is easier to breath. Bright sunlight that illuminates without overheating is easier to see with. Walking home during…

Dipping a toe back in after the other shoe has dropped…

Morning All. The ‘dipping a toe back in’ bit is obvious I suspect, can I string a coherant sentence together after communicating in barely more than grunts for the past 6 months? Well that’s for others to judge I suppose. ‘After the other shoe has dropped’ is a little more involved. Apparently waiting for the…

Quick follow up = pretty pictures

Just a follow up from the previous buzzy post – a new book has arrived (review likely after it has been thoroughly digested) so the fascination with bees appears to be continuing, much to my delight.

On a buzzier note

I recently read a list of 68 pieces of advice, written by Kevin Kelly upon his 68 birthday (here). While not all of them resonate with me “A worthy goal for a year is to learn enough about a subject so that you can’t believe how ignorant you were a year earlier” did. I think…

Knowing when to let them go

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…

The skills we learn when we’re bored

I recently had a very good cup of coffee made for me, by someone who shares a similar sense of humour to mine. It was placed in front of me, accompanied by their own drink, with the intriguing teaser “As we are listening to BBC 6 Music I thought I theme the froth” The White…

Random thoughts

I don’t know if I am having more or fewer random thoughts right now, it is hard to tell with everything else that is going on, but here are three of the most recent: It is going to feel REALLY WERID to walk into a supermarket without having to queue first. I really hope I…

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 Just to put your minds at rest – the remaining massively out of date seeds will be composted and so take their parts in that circle of life malarkey.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!…
