Welcome to the weekly round up with posts that you might have missed on Smorgasbord during the week.
I hope everyone is well, from the daily briefings there are some minor shifts in our restrictions in many of our countries and we are waiting with bated breath to see how the virus is going to react. Here in Ireland the lockdown has been extended for another two weeks but with over 70s being permitted to leave their homes to do essential shopping etc, and outside workers can go back… The plan is to phase in minor lifting of restrictions every two weeks based on any increase in cases. I think that is a good idea, rather than opening everything up for everyone immediately.
Today my plan is to get out in the sunshine in the garden with some music and a good book, and I might even dive into a cocktail…or two, after all you are only young once.
I hope that you enjoy your weekend too and thank you for taking the time to drop in here to check out the week.
My thanks as always to the regullar contributors to the blog William Price King, Carol Taylor and D.G. Kaye this week for bringing their special magic to the blog. And to you for your support.
This week marks the end of the war in Europe 75 years ago with VE Day on Friday May 8th. After six years finally the guns fell silent and hundreds of thousands of troops could return home to their families. For many however, including my father, the war would not end until 1946 in the Far East when he finally came home. I have chosen a Butterfly Cinquain
Thank you so much for joining me this week and I hope you have a wonderful weekend. thanks Sally.
