Thought provoking points Jane, especially the concept of buying ether! Although I do occasionally now make notes in books that are my physical property, I still feel a tinge of guilt. The ether that I've bought remains unread as there still enough tantalising real books in the house to last me another lifetime and for some reason I always seem to reach for one of those! Thank you for visiting my site and your comment!

So startling was my latest read that it has prompted me to say a few words. I knew nothing about it in advance. It wasn't recommended to me by anyone, and I had read no reviews. I just happened upon it. In fact it was a 'second choice' in a... Continue reading

Looks idyllic doesn't it? And it was; a wintery late afternoon walk around Bosham harbour, followed by tea and chat at home, and then a super meal in a cosy country pub. That was winter though, and now we are having the best summer we have had in yonks. School... Continue reading

It doesn't matter which way around you say it, it still doesn't make it any easier to do! Sometimes the number of things we want/need/ought to practice daily just won't divide neatly into the number of waking hours per day - or even all twenty-four of them! So, if you... Continue reading

I think we were very lucky with ours George, they were almost fun to have around! A new roof must have been even more disruptive than this. I bet you were pleased when that was over!

Once again 'life' is filling my time and trampling all over my creative brain; so rather than not blog at all, this piece is about the latest saga. When water poured through our early Victorian brick walls last soggy winter it proved a need for them to be re-pointed. So... Continue reading

Thank you all for your lovely comments. Please excuse a communal reply but after last night's lovely meal with Em and family, where we felt duty bound to drink her health, many times, and to consume her share of the wine, matters seem to have been a little out of hand today :-) Thank you all for your good wishes. It was a lovely day. And as yet, Trish, she still doesn't know! xx

Here's wishing a humungous Happy Birthday to our lovely mum, grandma and great grandma who is 90 today. No, you would never believe it would you? Before I start singing her praises, (well mostly), I must tell you that if/when she finds out that I have done this, my name... Continue reading

Hello Anne, How lovely to have you as my first visitor to my spring-cleaned blog and thank you for commenting too. The Starting With Fiction course is actually very stimulating and I might well try others, but all a question of time, as usual :-)

Oh dear! It is more than a while since my last post. Another spell of non-weight bearing seemed to put constraints on my inspiration as well as my movements. However, whilst hiding away from you all, I hadn't totally forgotten my blog and have been plotting a little spring-cleaning. Now,... Continue reading

40 more days in plaster Anne - not that I am counting :-) The postscript to the story is that my OH went up to C&H fabrics this afternoon and bought some waddding and a remnant of black fabric. Tomorrow morning he intends to upholster his invention! There may be a follow-up Twitpic :-)

As a salutation to all wheelchair users on International Wheelchair Day 2014 this is a short sequel to last year's post Just A Few Thoughts on International Wheelchair Day. For my second, again temporary, spell of wheelchair experiences we have a shiny new model. As the ultra light, super de... Continue reading

Time for an update to the string of posts on the saga of my fractured foot. Please excuse the exhibitionism but to save turgid lines of explanation here is my healthy, but somewhat overworked, left leg. and here, after fourteen months, my still twisted and iffy right one. If you... Continue reading

Thanks for speedy reading and comment Jo! Have to confess this was a bit of a challenge, but in the end 50 pages wasn't enough and I learned a lot :-)

Ever been fascinated by Corbusier's life story? Or wondered why the 'Wobbly Bridge' really wobbled; know what is an icosahedron; or ever heard of 'Bucky' and his geodesic dome? No? Couldn't give a monkey's? Neither could I, not really. Until I had a reason to read ' outside my box'.... Continue reading

Lovely to see you Anne :-) I am sorry I haven't been a very attentive Tweep lately. I know you have lots of experience of the NHS too - and I bet you have some stories to tell - hopefully some as positive as this? You keep well too! xx

Hello Jo - thank you for reading and commenting. It certainly is! They are a super, hardworking and cheerful bunch - and I am sure there are a lot more dedicated people whose tales don't come to the surface often enough!

On Wednesday this week the exercise class I go to at the hospital gym was foreshortened for the unprecendented distribution of cake. But firstly, to set the scene, a wee bit of background information. As a result of the accident, which I have written about in other posts, it was... Continue reading

A wee bit late but I can't move on from our recent visit to Tuscany without a quick post about Lucca. Mention the city to people who have been there and invariably their faces light up and they will have a tale to tell of happy memories. Most will talk... Continue reading

Seventy five kilometres from Pisa and twenty four from Lucca, nestled on the hillside 400 metres above sea level, sits Corsagna. We were very happy to stumble upon this small nugget of a place for our family holiday this year. Driving up from Borgo di Mozzano, just when you are... Continue reading

In May this year our search for a venue in Tuscany for a family holiday was proving tricky. Everywhere seemed to be fully booked. But then luck and a vacancy arrived at La Casa di Nonno Mario. Taken from the village below and with the zoom on my little camera... Continue reading

Thank you both, Anne and Jo. Bags are pretty much packed now and toes are pretty and pink. Hope the weather stays warm and sunny here while we are away and waits for us to come back. Not that I am greedy or anything :-)

I hardly dare show my face after all this time - but we are off to Tuscany on Sunday for a couple of weeks so I thought just a very few words to explain what I have been up to over the past couple of months might be good. An... Continue reading

Lovely surprise to get your comment Lindsay xx I am getting there - having therapy three times a week at the moment, so a bit time consuming. But driving again and leaving my stick at home - unless it's a long walk! Also aware I must pay attention to my website soon :-)
