The corona diaries – National Poetry Day

Blustery morning walk

I have got out of the habit recently of going for my morning walk and I woke up this morning realising just how much I had missed it! I don’t mind admitting that I was in a bit of a grump yesterday – it has not been an easy week and I was generally feeling…

A visit from the beast from the East!

I suspect like me you are very bored of hearing about the snow and the beast from the East! However as I type the big thaw is already well underway and it is feeling much warmer in our cold old house! Over the snow days we managed to get out for a few walk –…
