Covid Time Knitting

Covid Time has given me the opportunity to explore and experiments with my knitting. I love knitting and find it relaxing and challenging. There is always something new to learn. My Covid Time Knitting has resulted in two cardigans, a short sleeved jumper, four hats, four neck warmers, a scarf and two large shawls. I […]

Fox Sighting at Folly View

Lyndon was up in the night and looked out of the bedroom window. He thought he could see a cat below the greengage tree but he realised it was too big and had a big bushy tail with a white tip. A Fox , he surmised, was sniffing around under the greengage tree and was […]

Folly View Open Again

We have had our first guests and all went well. They had a lovely time. They did lots of cycling and particularly liked the Long Mynd. My change over went well except I was very hot and bothered. I wished I could have joined our departing guests on their stop off at the Millennium Green […]
