Hello 2019 – better late than never!

News Years resolution 1 – stop procrastinating. Well that failed spectacularly – January 14th and I still haven’t published a single Blog post. I’ve been scribbling things down but until now nothing has made iit onto the virtual page. So here goes – hello 2019! If you look back on this Blog you will see…

And so that was 2018!

AND SO THAT WAS 2018 What a year! Where do I start?  As usual I have left it until the very last minute to sort  photos for, and write this post, so I’ll just let the photos speak for themselves with just a brief run down of the main highlights! My son Tom graduated from…

In remembrance of Sydney Bacon

I first published this post in 2014 and it seems very fitting to republished today on the 100th anniversary of the armistice. Amazingly my Dad discovered this newspaper amongst his own fathers memorabilia yesterday. This morning I will be going to our local service to remember all of those who perished in this and other…

Herby cheese scones

Herby cheese scones

You can’t beat a good scone!! I’m particularly partial to a cheese one – there’s something so lovely about their soft warm cheesiness dripping with butter! This is a very straightforward recipe but with the addition of a lovely herby mixture that just adds a top note to the flavour. My favourite is a pizza…

Well Monday…

Monday’s good intentions….

My daughter always teases me about the fact that I always start a diet on Monday. Just as I always vow stay wine until Friday, sort out my In Box and my In Tray, start that patchwork quilt that I’ve bought the material for, renovate the old picture frames I bought at the auction a…

Morning walk

Absolute rubbish

This is not the first time that I’ve posted pictures of rubbish in the verges. Over the years since I’ve been doing my morning walk I’ve seen beds, sofas, computers, fridges, car seats as well as the usual litter that people chuck out of their cars into the verges.  I am always at a loss…

Carpe diem

Carpe diem

Today started at about 12.10am when our son woke me from that deep early night sleep to say that Robin Williams was dead.  I didn’t quite believe it until the morning when the early morning Radio confirmed his late night whispers. Oh captain oh my captain… Just over 12 hours later  we were at the Woodland Burial at…

Morning walk – bright and breezy

After the wild, wet and windy weather yesterday from the sting in the tail of hurricane Bertha it was very fresh and breezy this morning giving rise to bright and clear light.  It was one of those skies where the clouds looked 3D and created crazy shapes – that  could suddenly look like an elephant…
