I am sure there must be a lot of love songs that refer to forever, eternity or endless love. I am expecting today to be rather romantic over on Song Lyric Sunday. My choice for today is a track from Richard Marx. I remember listening to the song "Right Here Waiting" in my younger days, … Continue reading How Can We Say Forever
“Keep doing this in remembrance of me.”Luke 22:19 A few weeks ago, we had a discussion around the dinner table about beliefs. I must admit I have generally kept my beliefs about God to myself most of my life, only because I don't like controversy and I don't enjoy debates on matters people hold sacred. … Continue reading Keep Doing This In Remembrance Of Me
If ever there was a bottle of wine that split opinion in our household it was probably this one.

I found this one in The Times Magazine and it appealed to me simply because it looked so very easy.

It was everything I was longing for and more - bright citrus lime with a faint floral edge to it. I was very pleased. In … Continue reading Les Collines de Luzanet – Cotes De Gascogne
This morning Robert is making his way to Terminal 5 to pick up a friend arriving from abroad. He does not have to quarantine because he has been away working as a government contractor, but he has been taking regular covid-tests, all of which have been negative. I am relieved he is (nearly) back. There … Continue reading Welcome Back!
Today will be a housework day. I still have annual leave stacked up from a year of no holidays. So I have the rest of this week off work. Today I am going to concentrate on cleaning and laundry. We also have an Ocado order coming this evening to stock up the pantry. I will … Continue reading Housework Haven
