A Little Further On

Eileen - Aunt Edy dated it 1893 but I think it was a little older. There is a cool guide here how to tell the age of a map. Not all of it to be taken seriously, but helpful. I know that there was a part of what is now Bulgaria (I think) that changed 10 times during the period 1870-1945 covered by my A level course.

Sharon - I am a little worried as bear is confident, but we will see. It's wonderful having really old books. There is something comforting about them.

Bless - thank you!

My laptop continues to be erratic, so there may be a few gaps. 

I managed to make myself go for a walk today. This was amazing for me, as I've struggled a bit over the last few weeks. I got a load of pics for this months photo challenge and some doggy cuddles.

I took this pic as it looked so colourful. I think the flowers are a little later in the park, but still beautiful.

Bear didn't need picking up until six due to some rehearsals, so I set off quite a bit later. I got there by the skin of my teeth as I forgot about rush hour traffic. I am definitely keeping the P plates as I stalled both on the way there (I was thinking of something else and tried to set off in third) and on the way back (correct gear, but going uphill on a small roundabout with iffy visibility where I need to be able to dart out). The last one is definitely me not getting the biting point right. 

I've had a go at one of my favourite games - Farmington. It's old, unexacting and perfect for when I'm trying to work out a plot. I realised today that there are lots of instances of the Ukraine flag, and it felt heartbreaking. I am praying for the people there, and will be donating to Shelterbox and the Red Cross.

Hugs and good health to all. 


  1. Those are some pretty flowers. Still nothing growing here.
    I hate rush hour traffic. I avoid it when I can.

  2. Lovely photo with all the spring flowers in bloom. Glad you had a safe drive even with the stalling! :)
