It’s All The Same Really

It’s been an eventful few days I tell you. I crossed to the other side of my front door 7 days in 10. Most of those I got further than my garden, some of them I even left my town, and one of them I went inside a restaurant. But we will get to that… Continue reading It’s All The Same Really

My Year in Books – 2020 (part 2)

Its been well over a year since I wrote one of my usual reviews, the type this blog was established for. The day to day life of a person on wheels. This past year my ramblings have turned into the day to day life of a frustrated shielder, plodding along. It was that or take… Continue reading My Year in Books – 2020 (part 2)
