Tuesday, 7th July 2020 - Puncture Repair Team

I have been painting the inside of a cupboard that houses my bnb linen. It was going to be just a bit of a patch up. I decided that I would remove the 25 year old sticky backed plastic on the shelves. Cover stain paint is fantastic it covers all sorts of misdemeanours and sticks marvelously to my thumb. So much so that I cannot unlock my mobile.

Tom tried to fix Hetty's flat tyre. Not successful this time. She needs a new inner tube. It would be good if I could have a few new inner tubes.

Tom has gone home. I hope he is alright on his own. My heart aches each time he leaves.

Thursday, 2nd July 2020 - Walking Buddies

I have cleaned and topped up my watercolour palette. What a satisfying task.

I think I will probably worry about my children for the rest of my life.

Hetty kept Tim and I company on an afternoon walk. We had a discussion about why she couldn't bring a dead bat home. It has been left for collection with a suitable container for tomorrow.

We are watching a programme about the Salisbury poisonings. Terrifying and fascinating.

Wednesday, 1st July 2020 - Cars and Duplo

July has arrived with a new yoga programme from Adriene. Today I learnt about transitions. There is no hopping from plank to the top of the mat quite yet. I am loving the toughness of this process.

Herbie came and played with toys that belonged to Harriet and Tom. They must be about thirty years old and still providing much entertainment.

Tuesday, 30th June 2020 - 'Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush'

I have a new yoga mat. I am sure it helped me balance during Adriene's Deepen and Flow session this morning. I was a fierce Warrior III to the best of my abilities.

We have a mulberry tree growing in the chicken pen. The fruit drop to the ground giving the chickens delightful treats.

Monday, 29th June 2020 - Ithuriel's Spear and Pinks

Blimey it has been windy.

I collected old newspapers from my old friend Sarah today. I have not seen her for months. We sat in the wind. It was good to find that she looked the same as she did back in March. I do miss our bacon sandwich and coffee rendezvous. One day. Thank you for the flower identifying app. I used it to find out what these purple flowers were. Great fun.

Friday, 26th June 2020 - Chris and Tim

Wow that was a ferocious thunder storm. It briefly took out our power. When back on I could hear George Michael singing off in my studio.  I love you George but not at 5am.

After trying and failing to be a yoga lizard I spent the rest of the morning building train tracks on the kitchen floor with Herbie.

Tim and I spent the afternoon with Ewen and Chris Norman's bay. It was glorious to spent time chatting with friends face to face. We wandered along a near deserted beach.

Back home we are catching up with Spooks.

Thursday, 25th June 2020 - Piano Tutor

The weather has been mighty hot. I am not terribly keen on the heat. It doesn't help when my body decides to flush out its oestrogen turning me into hot steamy grump.
