Maybe the way to 'get back to normal' is to get used to wearing masks in crowded enclosed spaces. A practise that is common ins ome countries.
Managed to get out to do a bit on Wed. Trimmed the Hypericum that keeps growing over the path between front and back doors, now I can get past without getting wet. Scraped the path of leaves, moss etc and clipped the things growing up between cracks in the concrete. For now, and just that tiny fract...
I took a carboot full of apples to the woman who runs the Food Hub on my way to choir last night. decided that the birds can have the rest of the Bramleys. While I've been picking a lot that needs doing has been neglected - must remove the leaves, weeds and moss from my drive, and sort out the soft ...
A lot of mine are pecked when i get them picked from high branches, and the Packham's pears seem specially popular with something that gnaws them, both after they've fallen and when still hanging on low branches. Squirrel? badger? rabbit?...or what is locally called a longtail since you don't want t...
I picked the last of the Packham's Pears yesterday, and chopped up and stewed a dishful today to freeze (4 portions). They make a nice crumble. The Conference are now all either over ripe or not quite ripe. Picked the last of the Kidd's Orange today, though far more fell than were picked. Even as I ...
We went to Ireland for our honeymoon in'68. Lots of hay in heaps in the fields, also piles of seaweed. And being towed on flat trailed mini haystacks. Back for our silver wedding. Bales then. By our Ruby there was a grand mixture, big bales, small bales but still odd corners of land with little stac...
It is very jarring when period details are wrong. I was reading a book that dodged between wartime, +before and later. The woman was walking through a field containing big bales of hay - hang on, she's still not married so it must be prewar. Big bales???? Even small bales might have been new-fangled...
Not updated this for a while so here goes. Victoria plums - only about a dozen from 3 trees. Not many greengages either. Damsons reasonable (I like them raw when ripe, as well as stewed or in jam). There were many too high to reach, they've formed a thicket at the bottom of the garden, from runners ...
<t>My daughter & partner needed to go and take photos for a Cheshire Life walks article, so we went walking in S Cheshire yesterday. They needed to fill up to get home so we came back through the centre of Nantwich. 2 supermarkets with no fuel and he was getting worried that if they drove around...
There always is so much to learn. I had piano lessons as a child. Learnt to read music and played lots of scales and arpeggios (except we called them broken chords). But always played the left hand from the notes, not chords. So I wouldn't know what chords to put with a melody. I have a piano accord...
