Visit to Shoreham-by-Sea

Shoreham in West Sussex is one of those funny places that have two hyphens in their name. To distinguish it from other Shorehams, Shoreham in West Sussex is the one by the sea. There’s a Shoreham in Kent, in the Sevenoaks District (I’ve always loved the name Sevenoaks, I don’t know exactly why). So thatContinue reading “Visit to Shoreham-by-Sea”

end of september update

The last day of September deserves an update! I’m in Brighton, it’s 9.30am and when I woke up this morning I turned my head to the right and looked out the window and saw hills and trees and green grass and a cloudy sky. I see this first thing in the morning every day, onlyContinue reading “end of september update”

I took about 4 photos during myContinue reading “Greetings from Warsaw; (not) the greatest tragedy”

Remembering my last week pre-pandemic

It’s been almost a year since all normal activities stopped in Edinburgh because of covid… and I sort of remember the first days when I started cutting out my outings, although I still went out relatively frequently – I went to Tesco once a day to get some fresh vegetables (I remember I was intoContinue reading “Remembering my last week pre-pandemic”

2020: Summation/Share Your World

So I’ve lately been enjoying blogging for the sake of blogging, and it reminded me of the old good times when I started blogging as – I think – a 9-year-old. The sense of the blogging community was strong to me back in 2007, and I’ve recently felt it again. So in this post I’mContinue reading “2020: Summation/Share Your World”
