 Hilary was given a voucher for her birthday towards a meal at a local restaurant and by chance we chose to have the meal last Sunday which was the right choice as the virus has shut all pubs and restaurants.



 Last Saturday we had Maisie and Poppy stay and had a baking day making buns, bread and bread and butter pudding

 On March 3rd it would have been mums birthday and The Maisibert would be 12 years old so a trip to Chelmsford Crematorium before heading to the boat for six days.
I went to the boat to upgrade the central heating by installing three radiators with the help of Craig on the Saturday and Sunday.
