I’m not sure where the time went, I seem to have been away for a bit.  Sorry about that.  Mostly busy being busy; in between times busy feeling exhausted. Thank you for the good wishes for my operation, which I … Continue reading

In the time of the virus: day 97

Sunday again.  Plans for an afternoon garden get-together were abandoned, for several reasons but the main one was the very changeable weather.  Tea in the garden not such an appealing proposition when it’s intermittently pouring with horizontal rain then sunshiny … Continue reading

In the time of the virus: day 96
