Please agree to organ donation πŸ‘


Monday 7th to Sunday 13th September

Organ Donation Week.

Time for some promotion! This year I did an interview for the radio station Capital North Oxfordshire and also very briefly spoke on Radio Oxford.

Share Your Wishes, a Facebook group whose name I think explains what they do! were ‘encouraging everyone to grab a cuppa with your loved ones and share your wishes about organ donation’, so of course we joined in …

It was also International PBC Day on Sunday.

I spent some of my day enjoying the warm sunshine and pottering in my garden. Nothing different there then, as we’ve had such lovely weather that’s usually where I can be found πŸ‘©β€πŸŒΎ

Looks like I need to find myself a car now for all my succulents!



Friday 28th August to Sunday 6th September

Going to work and back pain – the two don’t go together very well πŸ˜–

Bank Holiday Weekend was a bit of a letdown this year πŸ˜–

I was hoping to have been at The Big Feastival like in previous years.

It’s on Alex James’ farm in a village very close to us. It’s a real treat to go there. But of course Covid-19 stopped it for this year.

“The highlight of the summer is having you join us on the farm but the safety of everyone always has to come first. I will miss your smiling faces in the Cheese Hub and in front of the Main Stage. My heart goes out from my family to yours. Stay safe, keep well and I can’t wait to see you in 2021. Let’s make it a bumper one!” Alex James

Both Robyn and Leah went away for a couple of days and got to breathe some sea air, they kindly left some little snack treats for me, of course I haven’t eaten them yet!

And then it became September.

It started with a couple of lovely sunsets πŸŒ…

And the hanging basket I made is still looking well πŸŒΈπŸ‘

Have a look at this.

“So very grateful to our 14 year old daughter who has created daily chalk art for the last 95 days to entertain her little brother, who’s in each drawing. He’s travelled the world all from our driveway. This art gives us something good to look forward to every day.”

Here’s just a few of her pics.

You can see all her art on Instagram @macairesmuse

PE with Joe πŸ˜


Wednesday 19th to Thursday 27th August

About a month late (due to the lockdown ending, going back to work and mainly thanks to my painful back) but myself and Robyn were determined to do it …

we finished every session of PE with Joe πŸ˜€

We both enjoyed doing this together. It has been good for us and it helped us to get through when some of our days were tough.

So thank you Joe Wicks πŸ‘

Watch – A look back on 13 weeks of PE with Joe

Proud to be one of Joe’s Class of 2020 πŸ’ͺ

I think the following video will only really mean something to those of us that took part every day.

So now watch another version of PE with Joe πŸ€ΈπŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

From the background set to the cute exercises and then his silly lean back at the end – I LOVE it 😍

What a lovely doorstep delivery treat. Mmm thanks πŸ˜‹

It feels like I haven’t had a decent evening walk across the fields for a while now. It was very enjoyable and good for my head.
