Hard to believe it’s still February. I was working in our garden in my t-shirt, as t-shirted neighbors passed by, this morning. I was making a start on tidying up. I’d pruned a tree late last year but I’d left the wood to dry off a bit as it was hard to cut when freshContinue reading “Sunny Saturday!”
Thank goodness it’s Friday! Today just got away from me. I pottered about, did some sweeping up in the garden, put some laundry away and suddenly it’s tea time! I’m currently sat on the sofa with my wife and daughter watching Traffic Cops on the telly. Soon be bedtime!
Some light at the end of the tunnel. We should soon be allowed to have family around for food and conversation. Hopefully by the end of March I’ll be able to go to the shooting range again. With luck we can go to a restaurant for my son’s birthday at the end of April. AndContinue reading “Roadmap out of lockdown.”
What time is it when an elephant sits on your fence? Time to get a new fence! How do you know there’s an elephant in your fridge? Footprints in the butter! Why did the elephant paint the soles of her feet yellow? So she could hide, upside down, in custard! What’s grey, has four legsContinue reading “Elephant jokes.”
I saw this tree on my walk today. It appears to be dead but I expect it is teaming with insects, bugs and creepy-crawlies. Judging by the damage to the bark I think the birds have been enjoying the bounty. I’m tempted to buy some grass and flower seeds to spread on the verge ofContinue reading “Lighter nights.”
Some good news with regards to work. I’ve asked a few people about their experiences under Covid and it is mostly positive. It looks like the vast majority of people are being sensible. I’m doing a deep clean at home and my daughter has accused me of malicious vacuuming at an ungodly hour. I pointedContinue reading “When the going gets going.”
I’ve been looking at other blogs and Pinterest sites and the “10 things” post is annoyingly common. It would seem 11 is too many and 9 is not enough. I wonder what would happen if the author said “actually I only need 7 things to knock this out of the park” or even said “10?Continue reading “10 things to do before bedtime?”
Had a chilled out Sunday. Did very little and finished with a trip to the Macdonald’s drive thru and a bottle of wine. Now to watch News of the World with Tom Hanks.
As part of my plan to combat my increasing withdrawal and depression I’m putting together a list of jobs to do around the house. I’m hoping that getting in to a routine and achieving something every day will help. Having a look on Pinterest to get a little help with ideas was an eye opener!Continue reading “You must live like animals!”
Had a bad few nights. I’ve not been sleeping properly and I’m convinced I have sleep apnea. Not to mention that yesterday I went for a walk with my kids and whilst I was waiting for them to explore and rush about I got cold and my arthritis started to ache. I fell asleep onContinue reading “So tired …”
