During the period of very necessary lockdown and now restricted movement, we’ve taken a lot of walks from the house along village lanes. Living in the countryside there is always something new to see; things changing by the hour, by the day, the month or the season. In the last couple of weeks I’ve spent more time eyeballing sheep and their lambs than I normally … Continue reading Little Lambs have Short Coats and Short Legs.

As part of the ancient fortifications of the city , dating back many centuries, it was most recently used as a Gunpost in WW2. My father was in the RAF … Continue reading Maltese Monochrome: Signs
