Smorgasbord Blog Magazine Weekly Round Up – 17th – 23rd May 2020 – Rainbow Fairies, Sound of Music, Books, Guests and Funnies

Welcome to the weekly round up with posts you might have missed in the last week.

I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying some minor lifting of restrictions in the last week, certainly here and in the UK. It does look if travel plans are still on hold for millions who were planning to go away in the next few weeks, and for those without plans, the prospect of 14 day quarantine there and when you return is a daunting.

We have no plans before November but we might have to rethink that depending on virus resurgence and restrictions at each end. For us a minor inconvenience but for so many their livelihoods not just this year but going forward.

Looking at local businesses there are some who have adapted, gone online or offer takeaway if they are a food provider. I wonder though if my family run hairdresser and some of the small coffee shops in our high street will survive. I hope so and I know that the government is going part way to helping businesses.

Apart from that we have had some lovely bright days and I have managed to top up my tan in the garden.. we have had 48kph winds the last two days so whilst sunny not particularly enjoyable to sit out in…or  to wear a dress.

Apart from starting the new series Project 101 – Resilience – Get fighting fit, which seems to be going down well…I have been plotting another author promoting series for lunchtime for the month of June for every author in the Cafe and Bookstore.

This time, you don’t need to do anything as I will be taking care of the details but it would be great, if you are featured as one of the four authors each weekday, if you would share on your social media.  I will tag the authors on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn if you are there too. Starting Monday June 1st…

  1. Another superb week, Sally! We just pulled the plug on a family reunion we were planning for July. Safety remains the top priority, and we’ll try again next year around the same time. Continued safety to you and David.

  3. Another fantastic week, Sally! SO much good stuff here! BTW, we had an African grey parrot for years. He answered both the phone and the doorbell, and imitated the microwave beep all the time. He was such a funny bird! Sharing this, of course, but that’s what you do for people who ROCK! 😉 😀 ❤
