For this next Lockdown Note I had been going to write about mental health but I’m shunting that a couple of days as I have a few things to read about this current pandemic and mental health and also because something annoyed me and I feel I should write about how selfish some people really … Continue reading A Note to the Selfish People
Lockdown has been a strange time. In normal times I walk in and around my local area and we’re lucky to have such a beautiful area to walk around in. Edinburgh is incredibly lucky that it has so many places of beauty all within a city. We really don’t have to travel far to find … Continue reading Say Hello for your Mental Health
Since lockdown started we’ve been asked to queue outside supermarkets so that they can limit how many are in the store at any one time.

Where the heck has January gone? It's supposed to last about 3,000 days after the excitement of Christmas and New Year, this January has just zoomed by. Whoosh. It came to my attention the other day that the last thing I rattled on about was phone batteries and that was away back in December, the … Continue reading Why don’t canals flood?

So, the day is finally (finally!) here. General Election Day 2019. Polls open at 7am and close at 10pm or you might have already voted via postal vote. However you do it, just vote.
