Dear Boris, How is your day going? I hear you were hiding in the back of the limo leaving for Parliament this morning. Things must be tough. My day? Oh thanks for asking. It’s been good! Lovely quiet winters day. Perfect for walking the dogs and chatting (safely, outdoors & at a distance) with my friends and neighbours. It all reminds me … Continue reading Dear Boris
So did everyone have a good night? How is the hangover? Or are you one of those wonderful people who wake up totally positive at the arrival of the NEW YEAR? I love New Years Day. Everything new, fresh & positive. I’ve been out with the dogs, wished the intrepid early morning joggers ‘Happy New … Continue reading Happy New Year – I love New Years Day too!
This might be a strange title for those who have read my blog in the past. I’ve been rather quiet recently but I’ve decided to re-ignite it for the New Year. For those expecting politics and climate stuff you will not be disappointed (how can I give up those issues) but this will be a … Continue reading Don’t You Just Love New Year’s Eve!
(especially when you are not too invested in the result and can enjoy the match!) Yesterday I spent the day watching some glorious tennis. In the women’s singles I was leaning towards Ash Barty and was pleased she won but that in no way detracts from the excellent play of her opponent who also played … Continue reading Glorious Sport!
We are now about halfway through the election campaign for the Scottish Parliament. Postal votes have arrived on the doorstep and as of this past week canvassing is allowed albeit with strict rules. Leafletting has been allowed for a while but few leafletters have been seen out and about. Posters on lampposts have appeared but … Continue reading A Funny Old Election
I’m sitting watching Michael Portillo ride the trains of Viet Nam. He’s arrived in Hanoi and is showing viewers the bunker below the Metropole Hotel and telling of the 1,000 people killed in the US bombing of Hanoi. Only a 1,000? We’ve already had the stats that more people in the US have died … Continue reading Death and Glory.
Well I can’t complain. I’m still Covid-19 free as far as I know. I’m out for my walk with Harry daily and I’m seeing neighbours albeit at a distance. No further health issues. Toby is fine though the surgery now closed for all but emergencies & I need to order pet medication on line. … Continue reading Ten days on.
I’ve just been out for a walk with the delightful Harry. All is quiet. It feels like a Sunday. Only two others seen walking (in the distance) and a few cars but strange, really strange. Walking back through the housing estate. Cars in the drive, no children playing (though I suspect that won’t last!). … Continue reading Coronavirus 1
Last night I attended the BBC Radio Scotland hustings in Dingwall and came out absolutely sure how to vote. The decision who to vote for this time was actually quite simple in the end. Though I know some of my friends will be shocked! Firstly I will vote only for people with a strong connection … Continue reading My voteDecember 2019
UK delegates at Berlin Training 2018 (including me!) This week I’m focussing on presentations I will be doing for the Climate Reality Project’s 24 hours of Reality - Truth in Action. Usually at this time of year the organisation has a 24 hour telethon to raise awareness of the climate crisis. This year they … Continue reading 24 hours of Reality – Truth In Action 20th Nov 2019
