    Funny that, we’ve had some conversations around this theme. Food for thought. And another stunning photo: sunbursts, silver linings and sea. Perfect. πŸ™‚

      Thanks for sharing my thoughts Alli. I really appreciate it. People can interpret those few words in any way they like, but I reckon you know what I’m talking about.
      Perhaps I should stop thinking too much and start making compost instead πŸ™‚

        Lol! Great idea. But yes, I do know what you’re talking about. Amid all this chaos and the tortuous restrictions, a part of my brain has been reserved for what we’ll lose when it’s all over. πŸ™‚

          Bird song instead of traffic noise, clear skies instead of pollution, quality time with the family – and there are loads more examples. We have an opportunity as a planet to start taking stock of the way we live – but I won’t be holding my breath.

          Don’t forget to reserve a part of your brain for all the positive things in life such as the opening of your first bottle of Sticky Rogers πŸ™‚

            Precisely. I’m hoping that some good will come out of this, maybe even a change in priorities towards those clear skies and natural sounds. Although I won’t be holding my breath either, surely some lessons have to be learned?
            …and if all else fails, you’re absolutely right, there’s always Sticky Rogers! Not long now… πŸ˜€

              One of the things I’ve learnt during this lockdown is not to take so many pictures. I thought I’d try and get on top of sorting some of them out, but I think I’ve gone backwards. I keep finding more – and I haven’t started to think about scanning old prints and slides yet. Perhaps I should concentrate more on getting them sorted instead of wasting time blogging πŸ™‚

              At least you’re safe in the knowledge that those castles will still be there when you can get to see them again. I bet you can’t wait.

                Nah, where would be the fun in that? Just keep on blogging. I’ll always be pleased to see your pictures.
                Yes, you guessed it – I can’t wait to get back to some castles. But in the meantime, you’re right, they’ve been there for centuries – some over 800 years, so I don’t suppose they’re going anywhere just yet. πŸ™‚

                  LOL. Don’t worry, you’re not going to get away with it that easily. I’m never going to get organised until they hammer that last nail down on my coffin.

                  Do you know how many castles you’ve visited and how many more you really must see? – (in the UK I mean)

                    That’s the spirit! Organisation is very overrated.
                    As for castles, well, I’ll have to think about that one and get back to you. But for now, I’ve been to a fair few, although never enough. There’s many, many more I want to do. πŸ™‚

                      I reckon that’s the secret about having a full life. There’s always more to do – whether it be pictures or castles πŸ™‚

                    2. Alli Templeton

                      That’s right, there’s always more of what you love to do. πŸ™‚

                      Couldn’t agree more. It’s been great to have a decent conversation during this frustrating period Alli. Thank you. On a brighter note, although I never expanded on it, I’m recovering at long last from an injury that was really getting me down, so perhaps Big G isn’t so bad after all. Enjoy the rest of your day and I promise to keep on blogging πŸ™‚

                      Oh, I’m sorry to hear about your injury and the long recovery period, Malc, that’s awful. But I’m very pleased to hear you’re now well on the road back to good health. Maybe the enforced rest has helped, so there’s blessings in the strangest things, and maybe it is all part of Big G’s plan after all.

                      It’s been lovely to keep in touch with you too, Malc, and we certainly haven’t finished yet (Blackbeard). And I’m glad to hear you’ll keep blogging. Enjoy the rest of your day too. πŸ™‚
