Well, it's nearly a wrap for April and sadly the extra nice weather, which I think helped to lift our spirits during this time.

Hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend from the safety and comfort of their own homes. I'm sure the long weekend and sunny weather probably made many of us wish we were away on day trips, a holiday or just meeting family. Normally, we spend the Easter holiday caravanning, but we still had a holiday of sorts at home in the garden.
We had a long online chat with my son and daughter in law and 10 month... Read More »

I don't know about you but I'm slowly acclimatising to being at home all the time but it's going to take some time to do so fully. I'm not sure my wife is acclimatising to me being home though!
