Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links


Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links 26.04.21

THE CHERRY BLOSSOMS are out, creating fluffy pink poufs in the skyline, against old stone cottages and cloudy spring skies and making everything bright and hopeful. Tiny fallen pink petals line the walkways and flutter lightly on breezes and while it’s become a little chilly again, very warm weather is expected for May, so perhaps spring may be taking its time but is definitely on the way. P’s 93-year-old grandmother has been set up with an iPad for video calling family and gave us her first ever email address. Apparently nearly half the UK population of people 75 and over began using the internet during this past year of lockdown, so the fact that she is well over this age group makes it even more remarkable. I’ve already sent her our first email, but we’re not overly confident that she will be able to reply until we can visit and walk her through it. Other topics have been discussing with friends lately include our collective and inexplicable memory loss (pandemic brain fog? too much social media?), vaccines and post-pandemic life.

This week’s links include a colourful English cottage and 14 places to book for a post-pandemic escape; white summer dresses, suede slides, and much, much more.
