online quizzing

We were supposed to be having a physical quiz night last Friday in our church hall, but of course, in these times, that was out of the question. So I planned an online one via zoom. I restricted the numbers to 60, and 58 signed up. We had 11 teams, and used the breakout rooms…

Write on challenge

There is a new group on Facebook that both Rosiewrites2 and i belong to. I missed the first day, but still wanted to have a go at this challenge, so here goes. The door had been recently painted, the blue gleamed and reminded me of the blue of my grandfathers favourite jumper, the one he…

day 42 – 35 years on

Today was the day that Kitty tried to sneak up on her favorite position. She started on the chair, first in the office this morning, then lay around on the floor as if catching rays, did a quick leap on to the desk via my vacated chair at an opportune moment, and then perfected the…

day 17- personality clash

I was having another read of those different personality types today. This friend of mine, who is struggling to cope with the lock down prompted it in a way. Yesterday we had a talk on the phone, and she was saying about how upset she was because of something I said, or failed to say,…

weekend social distancing

Having saved all that time in the week, I have time to use it today doing a good walk. Obeying the rules we decided to walk from our flat, along the river and over the hill, through the woods and down to Heimberg, then back along the river. It was a lovely walk. We did…

Day 4 lockdown light

hey, it is Friday and weekend, not sure why my co-worker looks so down about it. My first full week of home office is over. I am feeling so much more up to date than normally, and the weekend lies before me without all those things i would normally have had to do waiting for…

Day 3, 19th March

My coworker got into the office earlier than me today and took her favorite position. I also managed to get quite a bit done today before heading out to Bern. It was the first time I had been to the City this week. I am looking after the house of some friends who went to…

Perusing the class-ads

I like looking at the small ads in our local free paper. Three particularly caught my eye this week: The first was for a driver or drivers for a school bus for handicapped young people. This was on an hourly rate basis. It asked for you to live locally, and have a clean driving license…

La Spice is getting married

Those who know me from blog uk days will know who La Spice is. She was one of the first bloggers I followed, she was the core of our group, she organised virtual meetups on a Saturday night; we all loved Spicey. Her blogging was of rhyme and reason, poetry and prose. She told of…

Hot summer

wow, can you believe it? 6 months nearly since the last post on here. But it is not as if there has been nothing going on, just that I was lacking the blogging mojo. But here we go again, as the song goes. I will try and get back into the groove. So the car…
