In the time of the virus: day 37

Another good day today, albeit an undemanding one (or maybe that’s the point). Garden/allotment – I for one am pleased that we’ve had a good amount of rain.  The soil was crying out for it, and it’s nice to have … Continue reading

In the time of the virus: day 31

Another mostly good day – I’ve enjoyed making things and working on the allotment and garden, and it feels good to have something to show at the end of it.  Also we had several bits of better news about people … Continue reading

In the time of the virus: day 17

That was an odd month.  Beset by a (minor but persistent) bug that got Malcolm several times and me just once (thankfully), we did far less than planned and intended. A visit to London to see good friends was postponed … Continue reading
