It’s been a while

I really haven’t been certain about continuing here. Partly because I have a lot of different outlets for the various parts of me* (see footnotes), and partly because a lot of my blogging buddies are scaling back, and I feel the reduction is probably justified. There are so many platforms on which to perform, and…

Very important yarn update

So, take yourselves back to Christmas and the post box topper extravaganza. What do the crocheters of Herne Bay do in the summer? This: I didn’t have the time to take pictures of the vast number of things there. I did see part of the nativity and of course; a white mouse… It covers about…

Herne Bay 10k

    Too hot. And I am too out of shape. And. and. and. I met a lot of nice people though. I have actually been running recently, mildly hampered by my phone, watch and various intermediary apps not communicating with each other properly. But while I like the heat, I really don’t run well…

I was worried it was a bird corpse, but remembering Colette’s maxim “look for a long time at what pleases you, and longer still at what…

Dramatis personae

Or Who Lives in the Garden? (Running? yes 4.4 miles, slow. 1 piece of driftwood, a nice pebble) Mr B (Baldrick for long): plump in just the right way, blind, loves dairy products and water, ex-RSPCA. My cat. Also the photo shows most of the garden. Copycat (my name): frequent visitor, really wants to be…
