My lovely Mum kept a diary for many years. Among other things, she was really good at recounting in her diaries exactly what she and my Dad had for dinner every day, including the cost of ingredients, cooking time
and whether the meal turned out well. She did however manage to avoid, apart from the occasional dip into the news, commenting on what was happening in the world at the time.
Blog is a bit like my Mum's diaries, I suspect, and I don't want to change it too much because people seem to be enjoying it. So this new page will reflect, from time to time, on what's going on in the world - locally, nationally and internationally.
You'll find I have no political leanings at all, having worked all my life, before retirement, in professions where political impartiality was demanded. So it will be life as I see it - and opposing
viewpoints will, of course, be very welcome!
