Taking sensible steps

When there's too much going on and you're not able to do it all...time to be sensible and let something go.

Absorbing the riverside sunshine

After a fairly hectic day yesterday - running, shopping, errands and the rest - it was nice to pop round to our local on Canary Riverside and enjoy a drink or two in the evening sunshine. We were meant to go for a single drink before dinner at home, but it turned into three, very slow ...

Some voice-based shenanigans

I’m once again sending recordings of my voice out into the internet, thanks to Anchor.

Wait. Where are all the travel posts?

If you've been here before, you may be wondering where all my travel adventures have gone. I've bundled several years worth of travel posts into a single blog, located elsewhere.
