“… look to the future now, it`s only just begun”

With that optimistic line from Slade`s Merry Christmas Everybody, I think it is time to try and move on from the problems of the pandemic-hit 2020 and try and make 2021 a fresh start.

Only two weeks to go until Christmas, and unfortunately I still find myself fairly restricted in what I can do and where I can go due to the fall-out from my recent accident.

Garden photography – a project for lockdown

Well we`re now a few weeks on from the beginning of the lock-down, and although it`s probably a bit frustrating it is right to continue to hold on to our quarantine to get through this. So in the meantime what can we do from home? Unfortunately we have very little birdlife in our back garden, […]
