Week Forty-Four: 2022

For once I’m pleased the autumn rugby internationals are over. England’s performances have been pretty unappealing and that’s a shame as I do enjoy a bit of looking forward to sporting events. It’s the same with the football. I’m with … Continue reading

Week Forty-Three: 2022

I’m 66 on the 30th and become eligible for my old age pension. That makes me ‘old’ I suppose. I still prefer middle youth and I still decry the tyranny that says I’m really something abhorent as 66, whereas I … Continue reading

Week Forty-Two: 2022

Week Thirty-Nine: 2022

Week Thirty-Eight: 2022

Well, that was a rollercoaster of a week. It ended with me coughing like a fifty a day trooper, diagnosed as a chest infection and told by the GP to take it easy, not something I’m especially good at. The … Continue reading

Week Thirty-Seven 2022

Week Thirty-Six: 2022 – Just One Last Thing

This week has been about the Quilt show, one way or another, so I thought I’d finish with this. It’s a twelve foot square panel that had to be laid on the lawn and was tricky to photograph. Can you … Continue reading
