Blog post re-share: Dear WordPress

My feelings exactly.

This, That, and The Other

I just sent this screed below to the “too bad, so sad” response I got from the Happiness Engineers at WordPress. I know it won’t do any good, and that I’m shouting into deaf ears, but I had to get it off my chest. If you’re a fan of the block editor, if you don’t use or don’t care about the hassle that the block editor is causing for those of us who blog using our smartphones, or if you are just sick and tired of  bloggers like me whining about being forced to use it, feel free to skip this post. I won’t be offended.

Dear WordPress,

I’m having trouble wrapping my head around WordPress’ strategy. You say that the classic editor available on the plugin in the Business Plan is the same one that is available at the wp-admin site. And you say that it was “built with…

Blog post re-share: Tails of Hope

After coming across this post this morning, at Katzenworld, seeing the wonderful work that Tails of Hope, it makes me want to come back to Facebook, just to follow their wonderful work and similar charities.

My favourite video that made me smile this morning, was watching Alfie on the wheeler. He had a cat toy in his mouth and he wasn’t willing to share.

Before my friends start getting excited about the possibility of me coming back to Facebook, I wouldn’t.

I can watch the wonderful work like this charity, without registering back on Facebook.

Blog post re-share: Not had a rant for days…..

I totally agree with what Gary says in this post.

A Dad trying to cope with the loss of his Partner and becoming a single parent.

I came outside to look at the roses. And breathe..

The UK Government has a natural ability to take the breathe away. What are the words I am looking for




Criminally negligent


Part timers

Out of their depth

Nest of vipers




One rule for the many, doesn’t apply to them

When you think it can’t get any worse and then they take it a new level……

So on the 4th July Britain is open for business again. Something we all can sign up to if it’s done properly and safely. But this is Boris Johnson we are talking about. The laziest and most inept Prime Minister in over 150 years. So here are just a few nuggets of his so called plan

  • The governments own scientists have warned against easing restrictions too soon. If we do the safe way is to do that…

Spreading further deaf awareness

I am spreading further deaf awareness. The link at the end of this post will take you to You Tube, where you will see an animation of a poem. This was written by Barbara, a supporter of Action on Hearing Loss, which is where I learnt about this poem through email newsletters I get. When you are on You Tube watching this short animation, you will be able to read more below about Barbara and her poem.

Blog post re-share: We Are Not In The Same Boat by Lilly Eves World

This is so true. “We are in the same storm, but not the same boat.”

Lilly Eves World

I often hear “we are all in the same boat”, but that’s not exactly accurate. We are in the same storm, but not in the same boat. Your ship could be shipwrecked and mine might not be. Or vice versa.

For some, quarantine is optimal. A moment of reflection, of re-connection, easy in flip flops, with a cocktail or coffee. For others, this is a desperate financial & family crisis.

For some that live alone they’re facing endless loneliness. While for others it is peace, rest & time with their mother, father, sons & daughters.

With the increase in unemployment some are bringing in more money to their households than they were working. Others are working more hours for less money due to pay cuts or loss in sales.

Some were concerned about getting a certain chocolate for Easter while others were concerned if there would be enough bread, milk…

Blog post re-share: Quarantine Tips: A Night At The Theatre! By The Grief Reality

Excellent post here, of further ideas to help you get through lock down, or for staycation.

The Grief Reality

I try to keep in mind that this quarantine is a marathon, not a sprint. Except, with a marathon, you are aware of the distance you need to run and you have been training for months. In February I never predicted that we’d not be able to leave our houses within a couple of months’ time, yet here we are. And we don’t really know how long this will last for, after the government’s recent extension. 

So, how do we make this quarantine bearable? 

Well, Evee has mentioned how she has made her room a cosy environment to live and suggested ways you can too. But what do we do with our time now, particularly now the weather is brighter and we have longer evenings to enjoy? 

We are getting creative, and actually, one Saturday we all got dressed up, had a 3 course meal and went to the theatre!…
