Thumbs up What will we do with our time?

A light-hearted subject for us all in these grim and yet to become grimmer times.

Me, now I can cultivate all those vegetables I yearn to grow but never can because of motorhome and other trips as Ill be able give them the attention that they need. I will visit my 95 year old Mum once a week with shopping for her and to do some housework, as long as Im not self-isolating. Shes quite nifty with her IPad so lots of FaceTiming. Ive got a jigsaw ready to go and my cross-stitch that I stopped doing about 5 years ago. The hospital has suspended us NHS volunteers although I will be ready to spring into action should they decide they want us. The motorhome is tucked up for the foreseeable and I have just put away all the maps/Aires books and campsite books I had out for our month of May in France.

Stay safe all.

Thinking of ALL the front line staff working to try to help others;Doctors, nurses, paramedics, cleaners, NA's, catering staff, support services and all others. Their work is appreciated more than you can ever realise-keep strong and safe.

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Unless there is going to be a big bright star above my house its an impossibility 2 fold

Oh there is a huge bright star out there over someones house.
I took this photo a few minutes ago, for some reason its made the very black sky a strange colour, but this is the star and it is massive.

Cant make it larger on post image they say they are carrying out maintenance so you have to click on the photo to enlarge my very interesting star

Not a flying saucer, its always there, moves with the other stars so guess its just a huge star. when the sky is very black and clear as it is now its extremely big and bright, I have only noticed it over the past 4-5 years.

Its in almost in the same place as last night, over to the west, the flash goes off I think thats what makes the sky a weird colour. here tiz agen look
