I just learned I only have months to live. This is what I want to say - The Boston Globe — Read on Beautiful poignant piece by Jack Thomas - a journalist for 60 years. Found on Twitter (h/t @sambrook) and I have had a little soft weep. Such a well written piece, such … Continue reading FORWARD – I just learned I only have months to live.

Holidaying in Kent!

And the view is amazing! It’s also bucketing it down which is no bad thing either. Details on the amazing holiday cottage when I’ve rested.

2021 – SOTD – Week 29

That's this week lads, huzzah!   This was the last week before X and I headed down south for a wedding and a much needed holiday. We're both absolutely shattered and with the (now officially declared) heat wave, in desperate need of some quality sleep! Nevertheless, I have been diligently seeking out awesome tracks for your … Continue reading 2021 – SOTD – Week 29

ALLOTMENT – an oasis

That requires a lot of watering. And weeding. Spuds But getting to spend a free hours there this week has been just blissful. Squash One of the neighbours had a radio playing unidentifiable music in the distance - just loud enough to be melodic but soft enough to be very soothing. Strawberry (fields forever!) And … Continue reading ALLOTMENT – an oasis

July Garden Colours

Am not enjoying the nightly watering, but loving the results! And even some tiny pears in the front!

2021 – SOTD – Week 28

3 Good Things* – Project Hair

It's too hot. That is, I mean, it's very hot...delightful change and all that. No complaints here. What I mean to say, is it's too hot for my usual activities. Anything more strenuous than watering the garden is unfathomable to me - by which I mean I went up to the allotment on Sunday for … Continue reading 3 Good Things* – Project Hair

Fine weather we’re having

The gif I wish I was channeling … The actual gif that represents me… I swear, I’m sweating like a sinner in church

2021 – SOTD – Week 27

Only a week behind myself now! Huzzah! I haven't been blogging as reflectively the last few weeks as I've been struggling to adjust to change - I'm still not doing much but what little I am doing is exhausting! And now that I've an additional variable in play, I'm all over the place.  Hopefully I'll … Continue reading 2021 – SOTD – Week 27

2021 – SOTD – Week 26

I can't believe June is over already. At least this year is moving a bit quicker than last...which I'm presuming is a good thing?  Course nothing feels quite right, I'm in a transitionary phase between being forced to do nothing, doing nothing solo and now figuring out the doing nothing with X back in Leeds. … Continue reading 2021 – SOTD – Week 26
