In the time of the virus: mark 2 day 22 (Friday)

Foggy and cold here, with the sun just starting to break through by 10am.

I thought I had booked on to to a webinar about one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), but it seems I hadn’t. A shame. If you don’t know about these, I think you really should. I’m keen to explore how we can embed them into the work we do at Bath City Farm (and I know others more knowledgeable than me are likewise). I will catch up some other time instead by reading around the subject.


  • I had a lovely (but sad) email from a friend. Very difficult times for many
  • I sent some emails (more of that backlog)
  • I finished knitting another pair of socks for the toddler (and planned for yet another – she’s the only person in the family who hasn’t yet reached peak sock, and thank goodness for the promise of growing feet)
  • I brought some washing in from the line. It was never going to dry out there
  • Malcolm baked another batch of cinnamon buns: peak cinnamon bun is a long way off around here, especially as his are always so delicious. We pretend that it’s a sophisticated covid test – the aroma fills the house: if you can’t smell them, you really need to get checked out
  • I planned some cooking for over the weekend (lasagne, since you ask)
  • We went for a favourite brisk local walk together (often we go our separate ways: different times or different places)
  • We bought fish and chips for supper (a small way to support a great local business)
  • I booked tickets for us to visit a favourite National Trust garden – Stourhead – to celebrate our 45th ‘going out’ anniversary. Not sure where the years went since our 40th….

And so to bed. See you tomorrow xx

My favourite sign board has disappeared! Did they run out of languages?
Chrain: the perfect accompaniment to my fish. From our local Romanian shop (though I think this is Polish)

About deborah @ the magic jug

Now I've passed 60 I'm still doing all sorts of things I haven't done before, as well as carrying on with the things I already love. I live a happy life with my long term love Malcolm. In my blog I explore local and low tech ideas, food, growing, making, reading, thinking, walking, and lots of other words ending in 'ing'.

I love to read your comments. I don't expect everyone to agree with me, and I don't mind if you don't. However, I ask you to respect the 'circle time' rules made by my son's primary school teacher: make a comment, ask a question or say something nice. Thank you!
