April 1st – What’s mum doing?

How are you filling your days? Well, if you’re not a key worker, I’m guessing you have more time on your hands than normal. I’ve seen quite a few posts about people being bored, and so my posts over the next few days will attempt to give a few suggestions, that most people should beContinue reading “April 1st – What’s mum doing?”

March 31st – First car journey???

OK!! Calm down…. 🙂 We ventured out today to enable Denise to donate some blood (considered essential travel for the NHS). But this was a tough decision, as on one hand we have been self isolating as she is an asthmatic and so the decision to go into a public place to donate needed toContinue reading “March 31st – First car journey???”

March 30th – A message from Turbo…

Well, today was our scheduled return date from our trip, but we are mighty glad that we decided to make a run for it and got home earlier. Self isolation is tough, I’m sure you’re all agree but it is for the good of all. But here in the first world we need to thankContinue reading “March 30th – A message from Turbo…”

March 28th – Escape, Run for the hills!!

OK, a bit dramatic I’ll grant you, but it was great to get out with the 4 legged children this afternoon. We are extremely lucky to live where we do, and although we love travelling, the countryside right on our doorstep is just stunning. The picture’s below is inspired by the classic film – AContinue reading “March 28th – Escape, Run for the hills!!”

March 26th – Behind the scenes heros

Today’s image focuses on our beautiful countryside, and the farming communities that keep food on our shelves. During the Covid-19 crisis, the NHS staff on the front-line rightly get a lot of thoroughly deserved praise and recognition from Government and the media for the fantastic work they do for those poor souls that have beenContinue reading “March 26th – Behind the scenes heros”

March 25th – Another weird day down….

As we close the day, living in this strange new physically isolated world, I hope you’re all well. We are keeping ourselves busy, as having come back from our trip around Europe there is plenty to do. We are very fortunate to have great neighbours, and we have had a few 2-3 meter chats overContinue reading “March 25th – Another weird day down….”

March 24th – Chilling in the spring sunshine

Callie says ‘Hi’ from our back garden. It has been a bright spring day, and she has had a great time playing ball, eating and snoozing in the sun. It will soon be cuddles time, an evening ritual that she insists on. Thankfully, she is completely oblivious to the current Covid-19 crisis, however many areContinue reading “March 24th – Chilling in the spring sunshine”

March 23rd – Social distancing

I’m not sure the 4 legged children have got the idea of social distancing or self isolating…. It would be great to have 2 minutes to sit quietly and use my laptop or phone without aforementioned kids shoving a wet nose in your face, giving you a wash or using you as a bean bag.Continue reading “March 23rd – Social distancing”
