So the lockdown is starting to be relaxed, people are returning to work and pretty soon shops will be reopening. We have been promised a "new normal" but what does this look like?

2006.07 BLACK LIVES MATTER

I've deliberated about this post for some time but I can't ignore what happened. I can't be silent since that would make me complicit.

2006.06 THE BIG BUILD

We've been enjoying some glorious weather recently. Sunny and dry every day (in fact it is too dry and gardeners all wishing for a downpour). I sought to take advantage of this gloriousness and build my new shed.

2004.12 EASTER LOCKDOWN

Easter or Ostara is a time of rebirth, a time to celebrate the end of winter and that our passage through the darkness and the cold is over for another year. But this year is different. We are locked down at home, family and friends are apart and that hurts.
