To whom it may concern... My darling Jenna has been in touch, some of you may who I am talking about if you follow her blog. She called us to say she was absolutely shattered after travelling and had to spend most of her first week in bed - no swimming as hoped for. She … Continue reading A Message From Jenna
I will acknowledge, blogging is much more fun than I would ever have imagined. It has been a very enjoyable pastime during lockdowns. However, I can see that very soon I will not be allowed to upload any more photographs. My more experienced blogging friends tell me there are ways around this. But in all … Continue reading Why You Will Be Seeing Less Of My Posts
What's new for me? I am suddenly in the limelight it would seem. Not only did a young man identify me as Lady A - whose blog he had been reading - when we were both standing in a queue on the local high street - which I never anticipated when I began blogging....but also, … Continue reading I Had No Idea Blogging Would Make Me Famous!

Well, you are … Continue reading Nutcracker Cheesecake
Robert and I have had to cancel our plans for the holidays now we are in Tier 4. But we will be dropping in for a virtual party on Friday at Caramel's Cocktail Club. Check out her post below!

I was … Continue reading Melody’s First Book
