Nice connection of memories.

Posted on Thu, 13 May 2021

Nice connection of memories. Peaceful gardening enjoyment. I was amused at the connection between hanging basket work and the martins building their nests up there - chicks peeping soon not flowers! Rhiannon

But if you do good to someone

Posted on Sat, 03 Apr 2021

But if you do good to someone not used to giving in return, you may encourage them to realise they could, should, and would benefit really by so doing, or doing so themselves to someone needy! Rhiannon (and who can tell what's wasted, ultimately...

Posted on Thu, 11 Feb 2021

I usually have to come back to your writing and check what others have said, too, as, like Di, I'm usually unsure of where it is going part of the way, though usually rereading clarifies more.

I like the connection flitting between the...

Posted on Sat, 03 Oct 2020

It's a hard step to return, isn't it? Go on praying. And the Lord knows all that he is thinking at the present time, and all his confusion. When my youngest was young he had Asperghers, and we often both got exasperated and frustrated. Nowadays...

So sorry for your sad

Posted on Thu, 06 Aug 2020

It's an interesting idea for examining emotions and prejudices etc in a very unusual convoluted, invented situation! Rhiannon

Posted on Fri, 01 May 2020

My reaction was 'Poor Penelope'. A bit like realising the unhappiness and friendlessness of most bullies. I remember realising from what my primary school son was saying that the children were egging this bully in their midst on, and I knew...

Posted on Tue, 31 Mar 2020

It's so easy to get in a whirl of busyness that you don't notice the beauties around, nor take time for the lonely who can't be so busy, or are trying to help others. I had always wondered why the beech hedges kept their dead leaves in winter too...

I haven't been out to look

Posted on Sun, 22 Mar 2020

I haven't been out to look this year, but at others, found so many of the 'Mother's Day cards' in the shops seemed to be artificial, and not realisitic for many of the ups and downs of family life.

My mother is no longer alive, and in...

Posted on Wed, 12 Feb 2020
