Following on from yesterday's successful meet-up with my friend in the Memorial Garden - today I took another friend to the same place. Even though she lives quite nearby, she'd never been there (less adventurous than me!). It was a be... Read more

I've been failing with my daily To Do lists recently - without the appointments and deadlines, there hasn't been a need for a To Do list beyond getting ready for work! And the days have been passing with a feeling of not having 'done' muc... Read more
