Quite a thing this sneaky bug that hides inside people who show no symptoms. Easing of lockdowqn here in the UK but not so sure this is a good idea with medical experts predicting another spike in the Winter. Still over a 100 people dying every day although the numbers are becoming less every day. I am still not going into shops. The only place I go into is the pharmacy for my medication - once a month. They have a one in one out policy which suits me. Usually when I go I'm the only one…Continue

One old Southend Art School chum I hadn't seen for over 50 years turned up, so that was nice. Lots to catch up with, although a PV is not the best place to do that as you are mingling all the time and stressed about the speeches and the poem I had to read for National Poetry Day ( written especially by Roger "Radio"…Continue
Not sure why they have a blog post here? I guess you can write what you want. Any gibberish will do. Duffle coats through the mail? Yes, I have never tried I must confess. Wearing them seemed much preferable. I have worn many over the years. A green one, a beige one with wooden toggles, and the black one I have now which is a bit worse for wear - fraying at the cuffs. I need to look out for a new one. Maybe treat myself this Autumn.
