Happy 2021

We’ve made it to the last day of 2020. The year of the Corona Pandemic. The year of loo paper hoarding, mouth masks, compulsive handwashing, and social distancing. We worked from home, we zoomed, we home schooled, we ordered our groceries online, and reduced CO-2 emissions worldwide. Our world became quiter, and cleaner. And now,… Happy…

Fresh Veggies

The pandemic had me staying in voluntary self isolation for a long while, but eventually I got completely fed up with not being able to do my own shopping. It’s a right pain in the arse when you order your groceries and then things go wrong with your order – as happens all too often….
