It was a wise decision not to blog when I was ill. It was a virus - not a matter of life and death, though being the Prima Donna I am I thought at one point I would never get better. So you have been spared MUCH unseemly moaning. Now I am finally well but completely lacking in zip.


Spring finally arrived in the Peak District this week, and I found a self-seeded violet on the front path near the front door,

a sister companion to the self seeded feverfew by the front step, 

that I’m delighted has survived the winter. (The photo was taken last summer.)

And many of the sweet peas have germinated…

So on the domestic front everything is tickety boo, and I hope to be able to get back to my painting.

I don’t have anything else to say today so here’s a film recommendation: Past Lives. It was nominated for an Oscar but didn’t win, I think because it’s a quiet film with no razzamatazz. I watched it with Het in Cornwall and as soon as it had finished I wanted to watch it again. Now it’s on Netflix so I can. Watch it and tell me what you think. I think it’s wonderful. 

Ooh, I just thought you might like to see what the girls are getting up to in Boulder.

So glad to see that you are back Sue and on the road to recovery - you've been missed.

Another who is very pleased that you are recovering Sue! That sturdy beautiful violet is the best symbol! And so glad for the sweet peas!!! Your photo reveals that Dave appreciates the same version of yoghurt as I do. Mine is called Barambah and was developed under Southern skies but is quite delicious !
