It has certainly been an odd month, a challenging month……and it isn’t over yet……but I’ve learned that I am up to the task…..and even if I am not on a ward as a nurse I can share my knowledge and care (here I share some hand washing knowledge) and contribute to the effort of getting as many folk through these uncertain times as possible.
Ahhhh……..time indoors…..the weather is crud but I can enjoy each day all the same…..today I am trying to narrow my music collection to my top 10 albums…..and then I think about the next few books…….with all the usual distractions along the way. Grab your knitting and come sit with me.
Finally I’m back in the garden…and it’s a beautiful sunny day to be getting on with the jobs. I ‘prune’ the Taunton Deane kale and plant a companion for it……and catch up with some of my plot neighbours.
At a time when folk might be forgiven for turning their backs on the world and hiding it seems that people in their droves are jumping at the chance to help each other and offer their time and kindness. It is a beautiful thing. I chat a bit, too, about some of the fantastic on-line resources which are popping up to help keep our children (and us) entertained and occupied.

YAY!!!! It’s time to start the seed sowing proper for the 2020 self-sufficient garden! It has been an odd year until now and in many ways I feel behind and disconnected…….but the simple act of putting some seeds in the dirt has got me going again. Despite my failures with Loofah (Luffa) over the last couple of years I’m having another go……but with a few changes……. Let’s get those seeds in and dream of summer!
Here I chat a bit about how to cope with being ill if you live on your own as I do. There’s no rocket science here, just a big dose of common sense. I very nearly swear……and then make myself blush. Oops. 🙂
