Putting the pieces back together (31.2021)

It's strange how pieces from different places connect sometimes. I'm not talking about jigsaws here (for once). I heard this week that one of the more interesting novels I've read in recent years, Drive your Plow over the Bones of the Dead by Olga Tokarczuk, has been made into a movie called Spoor. I found… Continue reading Putting the pieces back together (31.2021)

The last week of… something (28.2021)

This was the last week of Covid restrictions in England. Or most restrictions at least. From Monday 19th (referred to by the stupid as "Freedom Day") nightclubs and sports stadia and concert venues can open at full capacity; scanning a barcode for track-and-trace is no longer required; social distancing and one-way systems are no longer… Continue reading The last week of… something (28.2021)

Before and After (27.2021)

I'm disappointed that I'm late again with getting this week's post published. Sorry, but my weekends that should be my writing and reading time are being eaten up by jigsaws. Pointless gesture of the week: the Queen awarded a medal to the National Health service (NHS) on the occasion of their 73rd anniversary. Not on… Continue reading Before and After (27.2021)

Back in the old routine (26.2021)

It's always tough adjusting back to work after a holiday. Being stationary for longer periods of time, having to think and concentrate, and worst of all, not having regular access to British TV murdering programmes. The last one was easiest to solve, and Husband and I - for our sins - are watching old episodes… Continue reading Back in the old routine (26.2021)

Hayfever, high heels and holidays (24.2021)

It's been a mixed week this week. Hayfever - is it normal to still be getting hayfever in June? I spent several days this week doing comedy AH-CHOO! sneezes and trying to scratch my itchy eyes out of my head. What is in flower now that could be causing this? I remember being at the… Continue reading Hayfever, high heels and holidays (24.2021)

Too hot to think? (23.2021)

Have I taken on too much with catching up on the circular economy course and doing my regular work, taking up running again and doing my #1000wordsofsummer? All on the hottest week of the year so far? This week it certainly felt like it. I haven’t had much time to think about writing this blog… Continue reading Too hot to think? (23.2021)
