Quick Links 24th April 2017

Each week I’ll try and post quick links to things that I’ve seen, read, inspired me or just sparked my interest in the previous week, with a little background and my thoughts and other things that I’ve been up to in the previous week. Mostly gardening, cooking and environmental stuff but not always.

Life In General.  – Easter came and went, and on Tuesday my car had it’s annual MOT and service. It passed the test okay, but is going back again on Monday to have a repair completed, one of those things that wasn’t bad enough to fail the MOT, but needs to be attended to. I also had my annual dental checkup and also passed without needing any work done. I’m not a fan of the dentist, so I’m quite pleased that I don’t have to go back for any treatment.

In other news, the rather depressing thought of having to go through a general election, so between that, the revived threat of nuclear conflict, and the ongoing pantomime that is Donald Trump, it’s probably going to be a depressing news cycle for a while.

The election is opportunistic and despite the issues with brexit, the NHS, and education to name a few it seems as though the current administration will tighten it’s grip, as there is no meaningful opposition.

Work. – A meeting with a potential client in Southampton, that might lead to some work, a couple of things to do in the week ahead to progress that, but otherwise a quiet week on the work front.

Allotment. – We’ve had a long period of dry weather now and keeping things watered has been the order of the day. Things are doing well though. The potatoes are through and have been earthed up, and I’ve prepared the ground for my leeks.

Currently Reading

 Not much time for reading this week, and I haven’t started anything new so just making progress with Wolves of the Calla by Stephen King [GoodReads] – which I am reading for an online group.

The Week In Wildlife – In Pictures

A nice piece on The Last Word On Nothing Blog [LINK] regarding good neighbours.

Looking forward to this:

  1. We are living similar existences this week. Had cars (plural) fixed. Annoying amount of $. And going to the dentist Friday. Oh, and reading Wolves Of The Calla too. 🙂
