A cold and frosty morning,


Last week was quite eventful with two birthdays to celebrate, Ruby was two years old on Saturday and Martyn was a lot older than that on Friday. Normally we would go out for a meal for Martyn's birthday but we don't yet feel up to venturing to restaurants. The last time we ate out was when we went to pick up Ruby from the breeder. She came from Bristol so we booked into a hotel the night before we were due to collect her.

We did all have our hair cut which in current circumstances is a cause for celebration. The hairdresser comes to our house and cuts, Martyn's, my sister's and my hair on the same sfternoon.

The only gardening that we did last week was to pot up some new raspberry canes. They were a gift from Thompson and Morgan as a thank you for linking to a page I wrote on growing raspberries.

  1. Happy Birthday Martyn and Ruby!
    Well, it seems I am not the only one who has not thrown caution to the wind. It will be a long time before I venture into restaurants. I wish my hairdresser did home visits!

    1. We seem to have got into a different way of living that will be difficult to break out of Deborah.

  2. Wishing Martyn and Ruby a very happy birthday! It's strange times still, isn't it. I'm back to ordering my groceries for pick-up instead of venturing into the stores :(

    1. We started ordering supermarket shopping online a few years before the pandemic. Margaret, We didn't enjoy traipsing round supermarkets. We order from three different stores, one weekly, one fortnightly and the other occasionally. It's so easy to browse to find what you are looking for and the choice is great.

  3. I wonder if we will ever go back to casually going inside stores again. Happy birthdays to Martyn and Ruby.

  6. If it has to be cold, I’d prefer it to be frosty and snowy. But still I’m very glad not to have been outside for a week!
