Menoume Spiti
We Stay at Home

is the slogan of the hour, the day, the month and probably the year.
Who was glad to see the back of 2019?
Couldn't have been worse than 2020

We needed some medical supplies
They came up via the children
The bag was tied to the gate
We shouted out  'howdy-dos' and they were off into the horizon

Athletic grandchildren getting some exercise on the back road where they will only meet goats and tortoises


  1. Ah but what a beautiful place to stay at home in, and such a lovely family to look out for you.

    1. We are very lucky!
      It's not a bad place to be quarantined

    1. My daughter is my foto reporter. Mine are usually quick snaps before someone complains 'not another photo!'

  3. Family-is-wonderful!!!!!

    At a time like this!!!!!

    Let's face it, sometimes we all have issues with some of our families. But in a crisis, blood is thicker than water, and they pull together.

    Oh and, concerning your comment.... Hobbies. Very good idea, for men too. Mine has always been a wood worker. He has always been able to go out in his shop, and forget everything. -smile-

    Maybe yours could take up whittling...? A piece of wood and a small knife, is all that's required. -smile-

    Stay wise, clam, safe.
    Turn off the 😱screaming😱 sources.
    Listen to your local County Public Health source.

    1. Wish he would whittle. We have suggested so many things. He doesn't read and doesn't particularly like TV. Thank goodness he found Facebook and lots of old friends there

  4. It looks like 2020 is going to be a year that few people forget, unfortunately. I will be glad when the crisis is past and we can get back to some form of normality.
    Look after yourselves, Mxx

    1. The old normal!! Wonder what the next 'normal' will be after all this

  5. I planted my red onion sets yesterday; a sign that I'm expecting to still be around in late summer!!

    1. May they grow and bring you many tasty dishes

  6. I guess we will all find our limits when it comes to patience this year. Maybe it will all pass soon.
    Lovely images.
