Time for a blog. And to think a couple of weeks ago I was thinking of ditching my website and quietly retiring into the social media accounts of FB and Mastodon (& a little Twitter to keep and eye on what’s happening over there). Then I started doing some number crunching on my energy bills. … Continue reading I’m Back! On Heating & Eating
Easter 2022 – Hope!
Here are a few photos of the flowers in church at Arpafeelie this morning! The church was full of people, bells, tambourines and glorious Alleluias and a few Easter Bunnies too. Thanks to the musicians, bakers, coffee makers and flower fairies for a wonderful morning! Thanks also to Father Mel! To people who say religion … Continue reading Easter 2022 – Hope!
It’s Time! Again!
It’s election time again. Voting day on May 5th and 7 candidates are standing in my ward - all presumably wanting my vote. I say presumably because I’ve not yet heard from all of them and as a postal voter, today its the day I can vote as the ballot paper has arrived. We … Continue reading It’s Time! Again!
Spring has arrived…and yet….
What a glorious day! Yesterday I got the garden furniture out in anticipation of the coming of spring. Facebook reminded me that on the last day of February in 2021 I was sitting in the garden feeding the last of an ice cream cone to (my then only) dog. Sadly yesterday was not quite warm … Continue reading Spring has arrived…and yet….
Back in the saddle (after discovering I actually never got off the horse!)
Last night I went to a meeting of Scottish Climate Reality leaders. I’d been ‘lurking’ in the background over the last year or so mainly due to Covid which limited opportunities to get out there and engage. I was a bit wary. I’d been attending some of the UK events but not actively involved in … Continue reading Back in the saddle (after discovering I actually never got off the horse!)
I don’t know about you but about half way through January I start to notice the glimmerings of increased light & I start to feel better, more motivated. This year was no different. My new year plan of losing weight & dry January was progressing but as I noticed the light I just became more … Continue reading Motivation
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
Happy New Year – I love New Years Day too!
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!
Don’t You Just Love New Year’s Eve!
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!
