A year ago COVID-19 was only just beginning to come onto the radar in U.K. we were planning an imminent trip to Lanzarote with the Mothership and Father Bear and our biggest concern was packing enough sun lotion.
Readers, the year swallowed me whole. If you’ve been wondering where I disappeared to, it was clearly no where because absolutely nothing is allowed. But after a good start and a determination to stay positive and robust I got knocked down by one too many curve balls and too a break from writing. My apologies … More Bye Bye 2020
If the sight of an elderly man walking around the garden with his zimmer frame raising money for the NHS doesn’t warm the cockles of your heart then I’m sorry but nothing will. This week Captain Tom Moore celebrated his 100th birthday and seeing him enjoy the spitfire flypast and all the messages sent to … More My Week In Positives – Happy 100th Birthday!
Hellooooo! Those of you that don’t follow my Facebook Page or Instagram Seasaltandsarah will be wondering what happened to me.

However, … More My Week in Pictures – New Dawn, New Life

Thanks to a Bank Holiday I’m living my best life right this second as I can look forward to going to bed and not setting the alarm. This doesn’t happen often! To top off the joy it’s the … More My Week In Pictures – Looking for Sunbeams
I don’t know how it happened, but last time I looked it was early January and now we are in Mid April. I’m happy to be midway through any month because it means pay day, but I’m once again surprised at the speed that the months go by. The morning drive to work is much … More My Week In Pictures – Salt On My Skin
Today is national ditch your resolutions day. I can proudly tell you I haven’t ditched a single one – simply because I didn’t make any. But I did take up something recently, cold water swimming – yes, it’s cold- and I’ll be telling you about it in a later blog. Someone who started her resolutions … More Erica Clarkson a (crazy) Girl Aboot Orkney
