I don't have anything against

Posted on Wed, 25 Mar 2020

I don't have anything against the individuals in the royal family - like you, I rather pity them.  In any other situation, if you told a child from the moment he or she was born that they could only do one thing when they grew up, whatever their...

This is a lovely read, Ice. 

Posted on Wed, 25 Mar 2020

This is a lovely read, Ice.  Very human, capturing so many little details of what life is like for a lot of people now.  I live on my own, so video-calling, which I'd always regarded as completely unnecessary, has become a lifeline.  My son, his...

I think you may have a point

Posted on Mon, 23 Mar 2020

I think you may have a point here.  I can imagine all those tech-savvy kids, in school or at home, bored out of their minds and devising all sorts of things on their computers that their elders will never understand.  The world may be a very...

There's a lot of all that

Posted on Mon, 23 Mar 2020

There's a lot of all that going around.  I do hope your friend's friend will be well.  As you say, let's hope we have some sort of normality back by this time next year!

At last - something sensible

Posted on Sun, 22 Mar 2020

At last - something sensible about Mother's Day!  It's always an ambivalent relationship.  Philip Larkin was completely right, but sometimes you learn to forgive your own and hope your kids will do the same for you.  I love the all-encompassing...

Sorry, I've got something in

Sorry, I've got something in my eye.  Absolutely beautiful.  Captures the sadness of the moment and a hope for the future.  I do hope your friend will be well.

Posted on Sat, 21 Mar 2020

Thank you!  My mog is a very cuddlesome creature, which is quite handy for social distancing, as I am usually covered with cat hair and no-one wants to get near me anyway.

Thanks again for reading!

Oh no!  I'm glad you

Posted on Sat, 21 Mar 2020

Oh no!  I'm glad you designated this 'surreal' - you had me really worried there.  

I can't believe it's only a couple of months since my son and daughter and I were in the West End, seeing a show, spending time in cafes and restaurants,...

Changing life for all of us,

Posted on Thu, 19 Mar 2020

Changing life for all of us, Grace.  You're right, it's important we keep in touch with people who are 'self-isolating' and make sure they're OK.  Hope you manage to get what you need and stay safe.
