Day 105 - Great Excitement
Monday, July 06, 2020      5 comments

At last the five mile travel limit has been lifted in Wales.  In terms of my usual daily life, that doesn't really make any difference to me.  The city centre, the bay, and so on are less than five miles from Base Camp.  Not that I have any desi... Read more
Day 104 - 72 Years
Sunday, July 05, 2020      6 comments

No, that's not how long you've been reading my blog, though I understand it might feel that way.  In fact I'm referring to the NHS which is 72 years old today.  It's a wonderful system.  I know in America health care can be extortionate.  So ima... Read more
Day 103 - Super Saturday
Saturday, July 04, 2020      5 comments

As I lay in bed last night, desperately trying not to be irritated by the fact I couldn't sleep [as usual], I found myself wondering what today's headlines would be.  You see certain businesses were allowed to open once again today including pub... Read more
Day 102 - Wild, wet, and windy
Friday, July 03, 2020      3 comments

That's about the only suitable way of describing the weather today.  Hmm, well, I guess I could have said 'Wimbledon Weather' but why that should be inflicted on us when Wimbledon was cancelled is beyond me.  Besides, this is Wales not England. ... Read more
Day 101 - It's all Greek to me
Thursday, July 02, 2020      4 comments

I'm not a TV person.  I know people swear blind they 'never watch TV' well, except for X, and Y, and oh we like blah,and blah, plus blah...........  So the list goes on.  Truly, that isn't me.  My TV broke down about five or so years ago.  The b... Read more
Day 100 - Reflections
Wednesday, July 01, 2020      3 comments

OK so somewhere I muddled up my days.  Buggered if I'm going back through a hundred days of posts to find out where.  Politicians and The Media were referring to yesterday being the 100th day.  That's because they were counting the evening of 23... Read more
Day 98 - Technology
Tuesday, June 30, 2020      6 comments

For various reasons I am looking into mobiles, kindles, dual tablets, and TV's.  I have not bought any of these type of items in many, many, years.  The terminology is scrambling my brains.  I keep thinking 'what on earth does that mean' and hav... Read more
Day 97 - A declaration of war
Monday, June 29, 2020      6 comments

Monday is the day I weigh myself.  For the past two months or so I've either remained at the same weight, or crept up a little.  We had a roast one day last week, plus the fish 'n' chips on Friday but I thought all the extra walking would counte... Read more
Day 96 - Battle of The Brits
Sunday, June 28, 2020      2 comments

No need to go to my parallel universe, there's been actual real time tennis this last week in The Battle of The Brits.  Amazingly, I've barely watched it.  Or not so amazingly really given it coincided with daughter's visit.  I did catch bits an... Read more
Day 95 - Wipe the tear Tizzy dear from your eye-ee
Saturday, June 27, 2020      5 comments

Another mostly rainy day but we did manage to do some more in the garden.  Over the week we've got quite a bit done out there.  I'm very much using the Royal 'we' there as daughter did most of the work and ALL of the hard stuff.  She's a 5' 2" d... Read more
Day 94 - The last supper
Friday, June 26, 2020      5 comments

Well, for the time being that is.  The storm did come shortly after I finished my blog last night. It wasn't all that much of a storm though.  However it did rain for most of this morning so no trips to the beach or suchlike today.  Instead we g... Read more
Day 93 - To The Bay
Thursday, June 25, 2020      5 comments

Another scorcher today so we decided it was best enjoyed beside the sea once more.  We didn't want to get caught up in traffic jams again so we just headed straight for The Bay.  As ever, it looked very inviting. ... Read more
Day 92 - Beside the seaside
Wednesday, June 24, 2020      5 comments

Another scorching hot day so off we went to the front this morning.  Not The Bay but a bit further along.  Unfortunately we got stuck in a VERY long traffic jam and there was no way to turn off and detour.  It was worth it in the end though.  Af... Read more
Day 91 - The Ladies of the Lake
Tuesday, June 23, 2020      9 comments

On our way to the garden centres yesterday, we noticed an interesting looking lake.   This morning we decided to go explore.  We parked up and ... Read more
Day 90 - Yes, my girl is here!
Monday, June 22, 2020      6 comments

Woke up at stupid o clock this morning [5 a.m] because I was so excited.  Sod that - no way was I getting up then.  I managed to doze for another hour or so then got up.  Got a message a short while later to say daughter was on her way.  She arr... Read more
