Storm Eunice hits the UK, Franklin on its way + medical issues

Hi. Hope you’re well. Mostly I hope you’re not in pain. I had a great deal of pain this weekend – out of nowhere- on the right side of my upper back, then both my ribs and nausea with the pain. The 111 doctor diagnosed ?shingles but I’m not convinced. Today I woke up prettyContinue reading “Storm Eunice hits the UK, Franklin on its way + medical issues”

A few pictures of Swansea

Hi everyone. David and I have just been away for a few days to Swansea. I thought you might like to see some of my pictures.

A grey weekend in Windsor

There have been no pretty skies or clouds this weekend. I don’t think we have even glimpsed the sun. As David and I sat across the table from each other at lunchtime I remarked that I could hardly see him across the table through the gloomy light. An exaggeration, of course, but the light hasContinue reading “A grey weekend in Windsor”
