We were told/warned that the 4 to 6 week period after a death is probably the worst part and they could be right though it’s all pretty awful to be honest. The time when the quiet descends, the funeral is past, all the paperwork has been signed, all the meeting with his friends and old… Continue reading Another Month On
And what a strange month that turned out to be! Ups and downs and all over the place. Of course there was the sad news of the Queen's passing. I'm surprised at how shocked some people were. She was 96 and not long lost the love of her life. At least she had the foresight… Continue reading September
Last week my friend Tracy and I went off on a jolly to Salisbury. There were three exhibitions I wanted to see and the company was very much welcome. I didn’t seem to take many photos, I think we were too busy chatting! First stop was the Wiltshire Open at the Salisbury Arts Centre. I… Continue reading Had a Fun Couple of Days

First a quick round up of Crochet-a-Longs and Stitch-a-Longs. The Stitching Cabin Nordic Winter SAL is now up to band 4. I'm using a… Continue reading April Round Up
As I'm sure you can imagine most time this past month has been taken up with Gwyn. Teaching her the basics before she knows different is quite a chore. She has tried the pre wash cycle already. At the beginning of the month I signed up to Laura Kemshall's 31 days of Art Journaling. I… Continue reading Spring is Springing
First of all very, very belated Happy New Year!! Which started for us with our usual sunrise dog walk on the first day of the year. Yes we're still here and doing ok! Thank you for the messages especially concerning John and his treatment. We did the full thing of hospital PCR tests, isolating and… Continue reading Long Time No Blog!
