Monday Musings…20th June 2022…

Welcome to Monday Musings where normally I share some things that have thrilled me, made me think or smile or even have a mini-rant but generally it is my happy place and I hope yours…June has arrived…I have also arrived in the Uk and it was sunny up until Saturday and it’s turned colder now!

I have been in and out this last week so have not spent so much time online…but a few posts have caught my eye one of, Pete’s was on some of the oldest continually inhabited buildings…I love the first one although they were all interesting…Please head over and have a look by clicking the highlighted link below…

As you know I have grave concern about the damage that is being inflicted on planet earth…this post depicts my feelings and that of many others perfectly… it’s by Robbie Cheadle who like me loves to cook she also bakes some awesome cakes…

I think  Robbie has done a wonderful job depicting “The Scream” by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch in 1893…the Lions face mirrors it wonderfully plus her son has written a poem that for one so young shows how climate change and all that is happening in the world day prompted him to write this poem to read the full post please click the highlighted link below.

Thank you for joining me today for Monday Musings…as always I look forward to your comments…

I am away for a month but have scheduled my posts ahead and apart from adding a few bits to Monday Musings, I am having a break…I will be popping in now and again and if I leave a like and no comment please forgive me but I am enjoying catching up with family and friends…today we did the obligatory Sunday morning visit to a garden centre and I found the perfect thank you present for my son and his partner…a tortoise she is lovely and named Gary…

Steph is over the moon as she has wanted one for a long time just like her childhood tortoise and we were in the right place at the right time so snapped her up…I never knew how much interest there would be in a tortoise everyone is oohing and aahing over her like they do with a newborn babe…
