Ann’s 60th Birthday Celebrations

What could be more enjoyable than giving me an opportunity to plan a big ‘do’ of some sort! I love the nitty-gritty, with all the twists and turns, that lead up to the event itself! (But for this one, I didn’t expect things to be as ‘twisty-turny’ as they were!) 🙄. Planning Ann’s 50th was …

Coronavirus – A Year Later!

Welcome back! Did any of us think we would be writing about the virus a full year on? I began penning my experiences about this dreaded virus back on 21st March 2020 (just two days before the first official lockdown) and catalogued my first 100 days; then again after 200 days, and finally – or …

Jab Done!

On the day that the PM was going to announce his plan for the exit route out of Lockdown in England, I drove over to Moulton to get my first vaccine jab. All the Covid-related numbers seem to be pointing in the right direction, and the details behind the PM’s message were widely leaked before …

Doctor Who – New Year Special 2021: “Revolution of the Daleks”

Christmas 2020 🎄

How was your Christmas? Even if you exclude the dreaded Coronavirus, we knew Christmas for us would be very different in 2020. For a start, it was our first one without Denis (where visiting him on Christmas Day had been a regular part of the festive break for the past few years). Christmas Day was …

Film: Wonder Woman 1984

With all the bad news around at the moment, I guess we could all do with an uplifting movie! This one doesn’t disappoint (even if you’re not into super-hero stuff!). Actually, it was just great to go out! 👍 All Cineworld cinemas are temporarily closed because of you-know-what 😷 so we drove to the local …

It’s our 9th Anniversary (or 36th, if you’re counting from the day we first met) and we always try and do something special every year to celebrate. This year is no different, but we’ve scaled things back a bit because of…‘you-know-what’! 😷 10.50am We’re heading for Norfolk, staying at The Brisley Bell in err, Brisley, …
