“Which one of you ate the cake?” Yes, Denise slaved over a giant hot cross bun (18″ diameter). We had a slice and it was delicious, but when we returned to the kitchen after working in the garden for a cuppa, and another slice only to discover the tea towel that was covering it whilstContinue reading “June 7th – Line up”
Alfie is fascinated by the sounds coming from the TV whilst watching Spring Watch. He seemed sound asleep, but jumped up on numerous occasions depending on the bird which was being shown, especially the Osprey.
Today’s post is about a plant that literally popped up in the border of our garden today. It wasn’t there yesterday….. We have no idea what it is, but it is very pretty.
Whilst sitting and talking to my wife about what today’s photo post would be about, the photo below landed in my inbox. If you look closely you can see a headset plugged into my phone. I have dabbled with the guitar for quiet a few years (on and off), but figured that it might beContinue reading “May 3rd – Lock-down Blues”
Today’s post is about one of my favourite tipples…. Gin. There are so many excellent gins on the market at the moment, and when you multiply that by the different tonics, plus garnishes the choice of drinks are vast. I tend to always try gins neat before deciding what tonic to add. If the neatContinue reading “April 24th – choices….”

My thought was: ‘If some of the seeded dandelions represent people with virus like covid-19, they would be safe to walk by but if the wind blew and the seedContinue reading “April 22th – Symbolic”
Not too much to say today, but hopefully a nice picture for you. This was taken whilst taking the dogs out earlier. The blossom and blue skies definitely helps lift ones spirits. Imagine if we had to endure lockdown during mid winter, with cold weather and grey skies. Let’s all stay home, stay safe andContinue reading “April 21st – Another blooming lovely day”
Today’s post is inspired by the dog walk and photo below. We went through some woods filled with wild garlic, just coming out in white flowers. So what does this have to do with anxiety I hear you ask? Well, there is a technique called the 5-4-3-2-1 grounding exercise. There are a few variations ofContinue reading “April 18th – Anxiety”
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”
