Hello one and all and welcome to my news page. Here you can see me as my two alter egos the ever efficient secretary
Prudie Jones, Evette the Spivette and plain old little me as you catch up with all that is current in my world. Regrettably
unlike Prudie my spelling is quite frightful at the best of times due to my dyslexia so I shall apologise now for anything
which might be shamefully mis-spelt. In the mean time I hope you find this page fun, entertaining and informative and become
a regular visitor to my site.
Thank-you to every-one who has been watching my video chats on Facebook. As yet I still haven’t masted the art of steaming and I hope it wont be too long before I’m able to have a go. I so want to be able to share my love of music with you all and broadcast live performances from home. It’s something of a challenge as I’m not technical and I want to emerge from this lock down having learnt some new skills. I’m a bit worried about my phone as it has a habit of cutting out when I’m recording. I’ve now learn’t the trick of turning it off and then turning it back on again which seems to buy it a bit more life but I’m not too sure how long this will last and if I will be able to use it to stream.
Enjoying the Easter Daffodils!
This week I’ve been pushing my own personal boundaries as a runner, and I’m really proud of the improvement I’ve made . I’m now up to ten laps around the park although today didn’t go quite to plan. At breakfast I muddled my insulin up and I injected too much Nova Rapid by mistake. This resulted in me having to eat more just to keep myself in balance. By this afternoon I was able to go for a run. I can’t begin to tell you how important my daily run is as it keeps me sane and helps with my diabetic balance through these difficult times. I’ve also been using water bottles as dumbbells. I’m keen to keep my under arms toned. Usually I would be lifting speakers every day but with the change of life style it’s important to stay on top of things.
It’s hard to believe it’s Easter and normally this would be a very busy time of year for me so may I take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Easter. As yet I haven’t been able to buy any Easter cards as so many of the shops are shut but it is one of my missions when I next head off to do the food shopping.
Talking of food shopping a trip to Tesco’s is now the highlight of my week. On Monday I experienced the new way of doing things as we snaked around the store in an orderly fashion keeping two meters apart. In many ways is a better way of shopping as it’s harder to forget things although saying that I did miss the Easter Cards and nearly forgot the jam due to thinking about getting hot cross buns for my mother.
It’s important to keep morale high and at tea time I always like to sit down with my mother to watch a film or serial. At the moment we have been enjoying Downton Abbey which is wonderful escapism. I love to hear Aunt Violet spar with the other characters. Maggie Smith gets all the best lines and the costumes are incredible. We are up to the 1920s now and Lady Mary and Lady Edith’s out-fits just get better and better.
That’s all my news for now other than to say I released a new flicker video this week of my photos taken at the East Anglian Railway museum. Sadly the museum’s 1940s event has been put on hold for 2020 but it will be taking place on the 3rd 4th July 2021 instead and I look forward to seeing you all then, if not before. In the meantime click the link below to see my video and we have used a recording of me singing Choo Choo Ch Boogie as the sound track.
I shall leave you with a few of my Easter photos from past times. Toodle Pip and Bye for now! 😉
