Stitches – A novel (2020)

I feel nothing but sorrow. I feel a sense of loss, of sadness as I walk down the well trodden streets of Bath today. Some people are wearing masks in the street. Others are not. Some people are wearing masks in the restaurants and cafés, others have removed them and forgotten to replace them whenContinue reading “Stitches – A novel (2020)”

On Beauty and Botox

I didn’t grow up in a world of Botox, although my thirty-something children did. My daughter once told me that getting work on your face was perfectly normal for her generation. At the time she was in the sixth form. I was quite shocked at the time. But I’ve rarely attempted to overtly influence myContinue reading “On Beauty and Botox”

Science and Education

Finally, a sea change. Today on Radio 4 a scientist announced to the general public that science is not fixed. The reason for this statement is that people apparently thought that it was and should be taken as read when initially commenting on Covid-19 as advisory bodies to the government. Hurrah. I have been remindingContinue reading “Science and Education”

I thought I’d reciprocate and went to her site to read, as I’m taking a break from editing today. I was reading her recent blogContinue reading “My diabetes avoidance a blog”

David Copperfield by Charles Dickens, The Film based on the book; released in 2020.

As a child, I loved David Copperfield. I had forgotten what a good story it was, until January of 2020 when I went to the cinema and watched the film. The film is based on the story and is very contemporary, with regard to the problems with finding decent rented accommodation, particularly in Britain. DickensContinue reading “David Copperfield by Charles Dickens, The Film based on the book; released in 2020.”

When birds lie down

I come to you today, feeling empty. There are no more excuses. Today I witnessed a blackbird lying down in the grass like a cat. I had seen the pigeons do this a month ago, but I thought little of it. Perhaps they had become domesticated, since they had fallen out of their nest andContinue reading “When birds lie down”
