The Week That Was (11/10/21)

Boob Update: if you simply imagine that every day this week there was either some knitting of boobs or posting of boobs to far off lands (California!!!) then you won’t be too far off and I won’t have to keep typing ‘knitted boobs’. Monday: Still feeding the squirrels, tiny birds, larger pigeons and magpies, so…

The Whatever That Was (04/10/21)

As much as I have been enjoying my new(er) blogging format (which is ironic considering one of my first posts was about how I didn’t think ‘journalling’ was a real word) I’m changing it this week. I have limited energy, physical and mental, so I am rationing it to make sure I have enough for…

The Week The Was (06/09/21)

This week was far more relaxing physically than the week before, but it still flew by pretty quickly which concerns me a little. I’m not very good at sitting still and being Mindful but I do my best to capture as much of that as I can throughout the day, I still may make that…

Not a prediction…

We have been watched a huge number of documentaries recently, which I’m sure will result in some sort of blog post soon enough, but last night’s fare has a connection to something I read this morning. Some background: I no longer read the news on ‘proper’ news sites…it’s too depressing and I VERY soon realised…

Comfort watching

As these weird months have dragged by and I am still unable to read any fiction (which I have become worryingly blasé about) it has been easier to find distraction and entertainment via TV watching. Normally I avoid watching the telly. I haven’t actually watched any live telly for several years, mostly because I really,…

Creature comforts part 3

I don’t usually watch a lot of telly but I can be persuaded to go to the cinema for the odd blockbuster. I adore huge films with massive explosions as well as adorable indie films which few people have heard of, but in recent years the bits they don’t talk about in the blockbusters –…

More about music…sort of

For some deep, dark reason I appear to be a little shy in actually naming any of the artists or songs that I enjoy…and this is not changing today (I will work on it though). Today I just wanted to shout out a film and TV series that might appeal to music fans. Yesterday –…

Better late than never

Last night as I was drifting off to sleep with a BBC documentary on beside me (bad sleep hygiene…I know, I know) I got an answer to a question I had asked many decades ago and now I’m not quite sure what to do with it. I had already looked the answer up in the…

Sticking with what works

I made it a mission, quite a while ago, to avoid mainstream news and the organisations that transmit it, but I am still out and about in the world so occasionally I have to endure ‘normal’ telly and the guff that passes for information on it. What I have noticed, when sitting through the programmes…

Blog-fast

I am breaking my blog-fast to thoroughly recommend Russian Doll on Netflix.  I read that it takes a couple of episodes to get into, but I was pretty much hooked from moment one (although that may well not be the case with everyone, it is well worth sticking with). It is irreverent, full of swearing…
