  1. Whilst shutting down the kitchen tonight the stunning moon led me to the top of the garden for this view towards the mouth of the river. Moments later I was hearing our garden blackbird singing his evening chorus from the roof, while simultaneously listening to BBC Radio 4 Costing the Earth discussing the impact of the lockdown on our wildlife and birdsong in particular!
    Today we have been very busy preparing for our VE75 Anniversary offering, a Devon cream tea kit and the kitchen has been buzzing with all the cake and scone baking. It is tough trying to celebrate whilst at the same time ensuring everyone is safe and distancing is maintained. A neighbour was bereaved last week and I so wanted to hug her but knew I couldn’t. I wonder if all this pent up physical demonstration of emotions will all come flooding out when the risk of infection is finally diminished.

  2. Well, thirteen hours today discussing and working on several projects. Thoroughly enjoyed even if most of it won’t happen or be paid for until business starts again. It is good to be discussing a planned way out of the present situation.
