July 25th – First post-lockdown dinner

My fab step-son Andy and his lovely partner Stella took us out for a meal last night in Bristol. Prior to the evening, I wasn’t quite sure how I felt about it, as we had been isolating due to Denise’s asthma, but it was great to eat out again. The staff at the restaurant wereContinue reading “July 25th – First post-lockdown dinner”

Today’s picture is from the archives, but I thought of this image after doing a tough shift for SHOUT.

I wonder if she could use that technique on my head so I can get some hairContinue reading “July 19th – Not another animal!!”

July 16th – Neighbours

Today’s picture is of our friendly neighbour, ‘Power-tool Phil’. We were talking about old children’s TV programs whilst having our socially distanced coffee, and it would appear he is putting on his own version of sooty and sweep, either that or he hasn’t read the instructions on his new fishing rod …..
