Well, I managed to miss last week as I was busy cleaning in readiness for my first B&B guests since March. The dining room was filthy! Kevin had taken it over with his model railway layout during lockdown so he’d been sanding and drilling, and re-wiring. You won’t believe how many little bits of solder […]


So I managed to lose a week somewhere! Oh, well… Last Friday was an interesting day for me. I’ve been a member of Gareth Malone’s Great Bitish Home Chorus since the beginning of lockdown and on Friday the CD that we’d recorded was released and, because we’d all pre-ordered it, it went to number 1 […]


Another week and ‘normality’ seems to be returning. Kevin and I went out on Sunday and there were lots of people about. Haven’t seen so many for months! The cable cars were running and the pier was very busy. Lots of people walking on the Great Orme and around it on Marine Drive. Our friends, […]


I meant to thank you all for the lovely comments on my ‘art gallery’ hall the other week, but forgot. I’ve never thought of it as an art gallery – I feel quite posh now! I haven’t done anything with the slate yet. I’ve got an engraving tool, but I’ve obviously put it somewhere ‘safe’ […]


Still nothing to show on my desk; I’m still painting! I’m using a slightly different paint as I couldn’t source the one I used previously and this one needs 16-24 hours between coats rather than the 6 hours of the old one. It’s also a bit stinky! It’s supposed to be low odour, but it’s […]


Nothing on my workdesk this week – I’ve been decorating. I did a lot of decorating last year – 3 bedrooms, my craft room, 1 en suite, 1 downstairs loo, the hall, stairs, and landing, all the skirting boards, architraves, picture rails and banisters (oh, how I hate painting banisters!), and 4 doors. I decided […]


Welcome to a slightly damp day in Llandudno. We had rain overnight, for which the local farmers are mightily glad, and it’s a bit overcast. Actually, it’s been overbearingly hot recently so I’m quite enjoying it! For those that asked, Kevin’s finger is much better. We were able to take the bandage off and replace […]
