Single earrings, birthday afternoon tea & a trip to Nottingham

What jewellery do you wear? If you’re an earring wearer, I’m going to guess you wear a matching pair most of the time but even if you don’t wear one in each ear, you would have bought them as a twosome.

N’er cast a clout and we have a new sign

Spring is officially here – the clocks have gone forward an hour which means lighter evenings. Great for gardeners and people who pop down to the sea after work for an evening swim

Spring sunshine, Irene & my personal best

It was the Spring equinox which means the days are longer than the nights, it was also our latest programme launch party so we set things up with brie and cranberry on crackers and crisps…the Marine version of a cheese & wine evening.

Long days, allergies & the Ides of March

It’s been late nights and early mornings for me along with a full-on day in between. The trouble with those kind of weeks is that time literally flies by

The World Wide Web, a broken down mobility scooter & fishnet stockings

Can you remember the world without the internet? It never ceases to shock me just how much we rely on it, both for work and socially. For instance this week I heard from someone out of the blue whom I worked with over 20 years ago and she summarised her life in 4 very short paragraphs

Half term, Kate Winslet & fishermen from across Europe

It was half term last week. There are two camps in Lyme, one of them says “half term is great, the roads are so quiet without all the school run lot” and the other “there’s no parking, hundreds of dogs and children wandering about and I had to queue in Costa, what a nightmare”

It’s not just love that’s in the air

It’s been a week of all things love…along with more meetings and nights out, oh and not forgetting the drugs bust with the armed police.

Meetings, meetings and more meetings

Meetings galore this past week. There was a suggestion a while back that we should have one day a week when there are no meetings, we put a ‘do not disturb’ sign on the door and rope in one of the volunteers to be our gate-keeper to steer the random visitors elsewhere.

No-show snow & flying solo

I well remember 8 March 2018, I was the last one to leave the theatre not long after the snowfall started. It was the day I ended up abandoning my car and trudging home knee deep in the white stuff.

The Lyme Lunge, a long walk home & hopefully my car is fixed

It’s been a Bassett’s sort of week as we moved from one year to the next.
