Hump Day

Well it’s been a strange old day. Started at the doctors with my daughter. Resulting is absolutely no results other than a promise to chase all referrals. Very disappointing. Followed by our day at the horse riding volunteer place, absolutely freezing, no heating, daughter bumped her head and has a bit of concussion. Came homeContinue reading “Hump Day”

It’s raining, again.

The UK is usually thought of as grey, rainy and cold but for a few years now it’s been quiet the opposite. So the recent heavy rain has been a bit of a shock and caused flooding all over the country. My garden looks like a mini lake. Today is volunteering day at the RidingContinue reading “It’s raining, again.”

Is everyone off work today?

I’ve just been into town, I live in a small town in the centre of the UK, our nearest City is Leeds. Town was heaving with people! Of all ages, as though everyone had taken a day off work/school/college to do some Black Friday shopping. Is it only me who just doesn’t see a hugeContinue reading “Is everyone off work today?”

Upon his passing, the garden grewContinue reading “Reminders of the past”

When he finally saw me he smiled and said thereContinue reading “Body Changes & Gastric Bypass”

Air Raid Warnings in 2022

I used to think Air Raid shelters were a thing only in history books. The reality is today that in the Ukraine they are lit up red. Red on the map to alert them to air raid attacks. It’s not just one area, a border or piece of land, it’s the whole country under attack.Continue reading “Air Raid Warnings in 2022”

Visits at Brew Time

‘A watched pot never boils’, I hear my Grandmother say as I stare at the blue light on the kettle, bright against the dark kitchen. I turn away, knowing that in doing so, the kettle will indeed boil, pushing the tap and letting the sink fill with hot water for later; I hear the clickContinue reading “Visits at Brew Time”
