Hello, and welcome to my June Newsletter.  I've recently returned from a lovely holiday in Kefalonia, and now I'm trying to catch up with everything. We had a great time, but it's always nice to come home and sleep in your own bed. We've been lucky...

My May 2024 Newsletter

Hello, and welcome to my May Newsletter.   Well, after so much rain, I've finally been able to get out and weed my garden, and now it's looking nice and tidy. My potatoes, broad beans, and peas are all up, and the sweet peas are already climbing up...

My April 2024 Newsletter

Hello, and welcome to my April Newsletter.   Thankfully, last weekend signalled the start of British Summer Time, but I just wish someone would tell the weather! I know the English like to moan about the rain, but we've had so much...

My February 2024 Newsletter

My February 2024 Newsletter

Hello, and welcome to my February Newsletter.   Well, the new year started with a lot of storms, but for the last week or so, the weather has been lovely here in Devon. Cold and frosty, yes, but lovely and sunny later in the day. I've even...

My December 2023 Newsletter

My December 2023 Newsletter

Hello, and welcome to my December Newsletter.   I can hardly believe I'm saying that, and before long, it will be Christmas. Time certainly does go more quickly as you grow older. However, I'm getting on well with my preparations for Christmas. I've made the cake but...

My November 2023 Newsletter

My November 2023 Newsletter

Hello, and welcome to my November Newsletter.   Bryan and I recently went to Farnham to spend a few days with my sister, Gill. We had a nice time catching up, going shopping, and tidying her garden, as the weather was lovely. We also managed to fit in a visit to RHS...

My September 2023 Newsletter

My September 2023 Newsletter

Hello, and welcome to my September Newsletter. As some of you will know from being friends with me on Facebook, I recently celebrated a significant birthday, as they say. Yes, I'm afraid it was the big 70, but then again, I'm grateful to have reached it, as not...

My August 2023 Newsletter

My August 2023 Newsletter

Hello, and welcome to my August Newsletter.   I expect, like me, most of you are pretty fed up with all this rain, though I know we need it. The weather never seems to do things by half these days, does it? One minute we have a drought for a month, and...

My July 2023 Newsletter

My July 2023 Newsletter

Hello and welcome to my July Newsletter.   Well, it was the longest day last week and we've been joking that the nights must now be pulling in. A scary thought, particularly as the weather is more like October than July at the moment. My sister, Gill, came to stay...
