I thought I'd pop a quick post up because the longer you leave it the harder it is to come back, although I haven't got as many people reading or commenting on my posts this last year or so I do still like the idea of blogging and keeping a record of what I'm up to, it's nice to look back on. I have fallen out of love with IG somewhat and the longer I go without looking on there the more I realise that I wouldn't miss it, plus scrolling through your phone takes up so much time.
I still love reading blogs, for me they are more real than the shiny happy place that is IG, so for now this is the only place I will be posting.
Time is something I've been short on lately. Since mum has been out of hospital it's become apparent that she needs more help. She has gone downhill these last few weeks and doesn't seem to want to be bothered with anything, where a few months ago she would make a cuppa and warm a meal up in the microwave, now she won't do even that. There are four of us, I have two sisters, one younger and one older and an older brother, and we are all doing our bit to help but sometimes, as the saying goes, 'too many cooks spoil the broth' Between myself and my youngest sister we have come up with a rota for next week, fingers crossed it will work without too much fuss, we'll see. Mum does have a carer to go for an hour in the morning and an hour in the evening to put her to bed, so things should run ok if we can work together on doing the rest.
I haven't picked up any stitching or knitting in a couple of weeks, when I have managed to sit down I've just not been in the mood, it will still all be there when I have the time or inclination again.
On Monday I took Bonnie to nearby splash park, we only stayed for an hour or so because it's been unusually hot here this week. We bought some bubbles on the way home and she had just as much fun with those in the garden. While we were sitting there she was excited to see all birds coming to the feeders too, and I was happy to see the Long Tail Tits back again, I haven't seen them in a while.

Mark had to go up to York on Saturday to do a couple of little jobs at the Bowling place that was finished last year just as the first lockdown came into force, he asked if I wanted to go along too and have a day in York while he did what he had to do and, as I haven't been very far in ages I jumped at the chance for a change of scenery.
The weather here on Friday was glorious, but I had other things planned for that day so we decided to travel up on the Saturday morning and stay over night. Of course the weather changed over night, it's a good three hours drive up to York from here and we ended up driving up there with rain most of the way.
