It’s the season of Remembrance. Like everything else, it’s a bit different this year. Social distancing and lock down has means traditional parades are postponed and the Royal British Legion faces its biggest challenge yet in terms of poppy sales and fundraising. It could all be a bit grim. And yet… People rose to the… Continue reading Remembrance
Here I am again, blowing the dust off this little blog of mine and starting over. I didn’t blog at all in October. Not intentionally, I had plans. Unfortunately, so did life. My October threw up deployment blues, Covid related isolation, heating & boiler issues, cancelled trips…boo to all of that. I let myself fall… Continue reading Preparing for Winter ( And Lockdown)
September, September. It’s a month I love, always have. Such a falling into Autumn, fresh pencil case of a month. It’s usually a month I’d be out-and-about a lot, it’s a good month for short breaks and travel adventures…usually. This year is a bit different, for obvious reasons. So although I haven’t been far, it… Continue reading September Monthly Round Up
Here we are, almost at the end of September. This month has passed quickly. Mr THL has been gone for almost five weeks, deployed for the foreseeable future to the Baltic region. It’s never easy when he goes away for a long one and this year, of course, everything is a bit strange. No self… Continue reading A Country Walk & A Find in a Field

Hello, September. The end of August into early September has been a busy time. I’ve said goodbye to Mr THL, who’s deployed for six months following fourteen days of isolation. I’ve said hello to the alarm clock, school runs and routine. As much as I’m missing the Mr, I’m really enjoying the routine of normal-ish… Continue reading Church Pics and Champing Tips
It’s no secret that I am quite fond of an old church to mooch about in, and even fonder of a good old graveyard. I love a good graveyard. Imagine how chuffed I would be, then, if I could be the guest of a church for a night. My very own church and my very… Continue reading Sleeping Over In A Historic Church: Champing.
Things I love include food, flowers and heritage. Since moving to a more rural posting here in Wiltshire, I’m also nurturing a growing interest in wild food and foraging. So finding a pop up coffee shop with an emphasis on local and sustainable located in a historic courtyard of converted buildings…winner! Wilton Shopping Village is… Continue reading Herbs & Wild @ Wilton Shopping Village
Geography has never been my strong point. I’m not great at plotting routes or reading maps and my ability to identify geographical features is limited to say the least. So if you’d asked me a week or so ago to define a desert I would have said something along the lines of ‘massive, scorching, dry,… Continue reading Day in the Desert @ Dungeness, Kent.
So, July. What a funny, fast-slow month you have been. This has been the month of long days and short weeks. And confusion. Mixed messages from the Government and the introduction of sort of compulsory mask wearing set against a back drop of almost-business-as-usual has me a bit puzzled. But, Covid confusion aside, there has… Continue reading July Monthly Round Up
