Christmas 2021

This will be our third Christmas in London. I'm starting to get used to the dark afternoons and the winter chill. I've been dressing in big jumpers and scarves -- cosy and warm.

On hope

I recently read an excellent interview on the Rust Belt Girl. It's a blog I follow by the lovely Rebecca Moon Ruark. The interview was with author Eliese Colette Goldbach -- a writer from the rust belt of America. A thought-provoking and honest piece, the questions and answers ranged from Goldbach's time working at a steel mill to... Continue Reading →

Dear 2020

Dear 2020, Not long now before you're gone. And I have to admit, a part of me is glad to see you leave. There was so much pain and suffering during your turn around the sun. You've been one awful year for so many people. As COVID-19 began to impact the country, it was sometimes... Continue Reading →
