When Bryony was little I made her a Brontosaurus (which she called Bron). As part of my 'Recovery Box' from Bryony and Mark I received this chap who I have named Brontoo (as in Bron2). He can be put in a microwave and used as a hot water bottle - ideal for my neck at the moment.
March 14th was Mother's Day in the UK and that is my signal to give the cacti a really good watering. Then I water regularly once a fortnight for the rest of the spring / summer before letting them rest again over the winter. This recipe for getting them to flower seems to work when I carry it out properly..
This teddy has great significance at the moment. When I was thinking of making a pin / needle holder a few months ago I bought this chap with a view to extracting his stuffing for it. I never got around to it and now he's having the last laugh since I feel as though I've had the stuffing knocked out of me.
You may have heard of Project 365 in whic people post a photograph every day for a year. This is my version – the idea is to post a photo taken every day but I am realistic enough to know that there will be a day or two missed during the year.
Thanks for stopping by! Would you like a cup of tea or coffee? And please, sit for a spell. If you enjoy my posts, please feel free to follow me or subscribe to my blog.

I'm a blogger - and nowadays that seems to be my main occupation. Rambles from My Chair is my main blog. I’m a retired local government executive - now studying how to survive a neurological disorder that gives me various problems but, hopefully, a whole new outlook on life and an increased sense of humour and perspective. There is a saying in Sweden "man måste vara frisk för att orka vara sjuk" ~ "you have to be well to cope with being ill"....
I enjoy most forms of communication and postcards are a special favourite. I used to blog as Scriptor Senex which is Latin for Old Writer but now Google only lets me post as John Edwards.
