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.

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.

You couldn't make this up (mum)

During today's visit I mentioned that the hairdresser was probably due to see mum again soon... she had agreed to put mum in her book for regular six-week trims. Mum was aghast - surely it hasn't been six weeks? So we went to her diary to see if we could work out when she had last been in. Mum told... Sign in to see full entry.

January is nearly over and hasn't it been a long month

First let me say thank you to my friends for your kind comments following the loss of my beloved sister. So many people turned out for her funeral two weeks ago that we were genuinely touched. I suppose that, being relatively young - she was 63 - everyone they knew over the course of a 43 year...

Quiet time

My lovely sister slipped away gently and quietly last night, ironically at about the time I was writing here. Her husband rang me this morning with the sad news, and of course he was a bit shaken, having only slept three hours. I'm glad she was at home and surrounded with the love of her family, who...
