Raising awareness. A story that is part of history, which needs to be told and acknowledged. A story I wasn’t aware of until today. So I am sharing to raise awareness.
Here are a couple my oaty biscuits, out of a batch I made this morning, for the first time.
The receipe I used for the biscuits, using my diary-free spread in place of the butter, or margarine suggested, can be found here at The 1940’s Experiment.
I totally agree with what Gary says in this post.
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
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…

Re-sharing this post from Renard’s World, as I know there will be some bloggers that will find this post helpful.
Click on link below, to take you to the original post.
Renard talks about some of the things that can cause a blogger to abandon their blog and some of the things that can prevent that from happening.
Having been in situations myself where I have not had the job on a few occasions because of my deafness. Or just ignorance, I can relate to this video:
“Would you employ me if I told you that I’m deaf?” This will take you to You Tube, to watch it.
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.
This is so true. “We are in the same storm, but not the same boat.”
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…

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

We have rainbows and other messages showing in windows around the world, to help spread positivity, in this difficult time.
At Hello Bexa, there are some free printables that she has discovered from around the internet, that we can colour in, spreading further positivity. You will find her post here at Hello Bexa.
Let’s have laughter today and I certainly have had mine this afternoon. One being this blog post.
Thank you for the laughter.
The following was a just received from a neighbour, but their origin is not known. Many thanks Mr/Ms Anonimous:
Half of us are going to come out of this quarantine as amazing cooks. The other half will come out with a drinking problem.
I used to spin that toilet paper like I was on Wheel of Fortune. Now I turn it like I’m cracking a safe.
I need to practice social-distancing from the refrigerator.
Still haven’t decided where to go for Easter —– The Living Room or The Bedroom
Every few days try your jeans on just to make sure they fit. Pajamas will have you believe all is well in the kingdom.
Homeschooling is going well. 2 students suspended for fighting and 1 teacher fired for drinking on the job.
This morning I saw a neighbor talking to her cat. It was obvious she thought her cat understood her…
