  1. Well here we go again, am I surprised, no not really, am I worried yes I guess I am. What I can't understand is why a certain portion of the population insist on breaking the rules, or they think the rules/laws don't include them. Whats up with them, are they so self centered, so selfish that the rest of humanity isn't worth a thought, do they not have relatives or friends who may be at risk? why do they continue to  play russian roulette with their relatives and friends lives.

    While I'm on my soap box, isn't about time the media got behind the government to stress the need to follow the rules/laws and not to keep nit picking abut them. They really get my goat when they whinge and whine about the  the tiers, they should be higher, they should be lower, for goodness sake this is an ongoing virus it changes on a daily basis so, so must the rules. I suppose country folk are used to constantly changing tack, we cant control the weather so we adjust each day to deal with it out. So please the media get a grip stop being negative and trying to drag down the government, its not you (thank goodness) who has the pressure of making a decision, you are there to report facts and not give your opinion.

    On a brighter note, with a wonderful effort from the scientist a vaccine is being rolled out, I'll be in the cue, having spent most of 2020 sheltering and back there again, I hope this works for the benefit of all human kind all over the world. Please stay safe and keep to the rules.

  2. Well here we are and here we're staying for however long it takes. This is now day 51 not thats it's been much different to day 50 or 45 or any other day for that matter. The good thing, if there is a good thing about the lockdown is all those jobs that I've been meaning to do but never got round to, are now done. Every cupboard, drawer and hidden space is tidy and free from rubbish, the garage is full of stuff to go to the tip, charity shop etc, all bagged and clearly labeled, but it can wait there until whenever, its doing no harm.

    The garden isn't over big but is looking really tidy, ready for my seedlings to plant out, and Clives got the veg garden  looking a treat, thank goodness for rhubarb, I never thought I'd be saying that, but you cant beat a rhubarb crumble. I know how lucky we are to have an open space, I really would be climbing the walls if I didnt. 

    Thursday nights are good, its good to show our appreciation to those who are carrying on and doing their much needed jobs, so to those people whoever you are, thank you. We go out and  wave to our neighbours clap like mad then have a sing along if the guys up the road play their fiddles, its a good feeling of community in these strange times.

    In and and amongst all this I am doing a bit of work, new ideas, new gifts, hopefully we'll be able to start up again soon, but I cant see us doing any shows this year, time will tell.

    Anyway guys you all take care and stay safe
