Now I have a new excuse for not updating this site. A trapped nerve is making everything simple from typing to washing up painful to do, or at best “worrying” with the weird sensations it creates in my limbs an dhow my back seizes up. Still for you I struggled to do another post….
Yesterdays blog pix were all taken on my knackered old Iphone. Todays pictures were all taken on my knackered old Ipad! See if you think there is any qualitative difference. They are btw in reverse chronological order, like that any makes a difference!?
It’s true my back is causing all kinds of trouble for me with its trapped nerve but tbh that’s not a good enough excuse for how slack my blogging has become. Still here’s a bunch of new pix, plenty of cat porn and not too much of me you’ll be glad to know. More soon, I hope.
I have been reliably informed that this is none other than a ‘Morimus funereus’ which is a rather cool sounding name innit? Thanx Grrt!
It was a bright and sunny today, I actually unzipped my jacket and took off my scarf at one point! But it was cold in the shade. However it was worth putting the laundry out to freshen up. There are plenty of hard white piles of ice stubbornly hanging on dotted around on the ground. A bucket of ice was just asking to be emptied out into the sun and here it is…..
We had our first proper snow of the season. Funnily enough the weekend when my snow loving Slovenian friends decided to visit. The first batch came down on Saturday and Sunday morning and was quite sufficient for fun and games.
The second wave of snow came down on Sunday night and brought with it a power cut in the middle of Sunday night that lasted until late Monday evening.
I was snow tired after all the hassle caused by the weather that I went to bed at 7.30pm Monday evening ! It’s now Wednesday evening and though its a bit thawed there is still a lot of snow on the ground. And we had another long unexpected power cut today!
and to end with, a snow clown, asking “now what?” having mastered the art of standing upright on a wooden board!
Hey folks, there’s not much to report as I’ve been down with a cold – flu – covid (?) for the last month. Can’t talk for long without my throat getting irritated. Can’t go out and do much physically without getting exhausted. Used up much of my food stocks trying not to go in to town. It’s raining so the cats are fed up too! So much for the security of rural isolation!!
After two years of living in relative isolation surrounded by Croatian fresh air rather than virus riven people I went over to the UK to check up on my old man. A week in the little town of Ilminster was quite nice even in the company of my siblings! I had an evening in London on the way back here at a wonderful vegan eatery. A few days after I returned to my solitary space I came down with a sore throat that became a headache and then Covid for sure. Two weeks since I am still weak and breathless and wasting a lot of time doing very little. Here are a few images from the last fortnight. If they were to be accurate then they should be full of pictures taken from the perspective of my bed!
Yes I have failed to keep this blog up to date of late. I spend too much time in front of the computer doing all the other things I need to do and my eyes often ache having done so. Hence when it comes to the blog I tell myself I’ll do it tomorrow when my eyes are fresh and guess what… I don’t! Anyway here we go again with a bunch of snap shots from the last weeks. I was away for a week visiting my Dad who’s getting a bit old n frail. Passing through London was weird, I felt a weird mix of being a stranger in a place I used to know like the back of my hand! Twas good to check a couple of great vegan restaurants with old friends and eat copious amounts of Gregs sausage rolls! Now I’m back and trying to keep my room warm. Enough waffle, on with the pictures….
