Older and wiser?

There doesn't seem to be a manual for growing 'old' - perhaps I should make a note of the things I'm learning, if I can remember them... (haha!). Forgetting what I went upstairs for is giving me exercise at least! Sign in to see full entry.

Happy New Year to you all

It is the first day of another new year and a reminder of how fast time flies. Perhaps this year I will get more time to write and reflect, meanwhile I am glad we have this Blogit space in which to do so. This has been one of the hardest years I can remember, but it's over now and we can turn the... Sign in to see full entry.

I can certainly pick 'em!

Sometimes I have the most extraordinary experiences. Yesterday leaving church I noticed that the blackberries in the hedges around the burial ground opposite the church were ripe and ready for harvest. I do not care for wild blackberries, though I do like blackberry jam. I am always half afraid I... Sign in to see full entry.

Five minutes to think?

It takes eighteen minutes to scrape 12 new potatoes (I know because I timed it last Friday). It takes thirty seconds for my loved one to come and talk to me when I think I will sit down for a little while with my laptop. Silly of me (smile). No wonder I never get anything written these days...!... Sign in to see full entry.

Entering my rock-chick age belatedly?

How have I missed this until now? (heard on the radio today for the first time).. haha https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TuCGiV-EVjA - and I already have the pre-Raphaelite 'festival hair,' not having been able to get to my hairdresser for quite a while (maternity leave - hers, not mine!)

In the Garden

We have just enjoyed the Spring Bank Holiday here in the UK, and it has been quite glorious. My garden (see last post) is badly neglected, and I made time on Saturday to cut the 8-inch long back lawn. It filled three good-size garden rubbish bags, and looks like a badly chewed meadow (smile). The... Sign in to see full entry.

Tread softly

Over the last two weeks I've been feeling somewhat under siege. First it was all the worry over mum, and then a bombshell email from my loved one a fortnight ago. Tuesdays didn't used to be this difficult. I thought I had got over that, until last Friday when he again intimated that I keep things... Sign in to see full entry.

Not oops

It happened again. This time we were in a market with friends. As we entered, a lady was working on her lace, with a lot of bobbins. My loved one instantly seized on this, telling me with some excitement that (late wife) used to do lacemaking, as if he hadn't told me that a number of times already... Sign in to see full entry.

Oops

Yesterday we were in the garden briefly, after the last few days of snow, deciding where to plant a few phlox. He planted them quite quickly, and we went inside. While I'd been at church he had put in some other plants too. I'd gone for a little walk after church to get some fresh air after being...

Who’s YOUR Valentine?

Nice overnight stay in Oxford last week, nice cards this morning, and a nice lunch today for Valentine’s Day.... or it was, until he decided to start talking to the couple nearby. It had started out with an interest in photography. He then went on to ask if the gentleman did painting or drawing, was... Sign in to see full entry.
