Welcome to the round up of posts you might have missed during the week here on Smorgasbord.
I hope that you are all well.. I know that there is another cold front hitting the USA this weekend and also much of Europe which hopefully is the last gasp of winter. We seem to have escaped the cold thankfully but we have had all of March’s rain in the first week. Not much help for the farmers who are beginning to put their stock back out. High winds don’t help much.
All challenging but at least the majority of us are safe and not facing the daily horrors and dangers in Ukraine.
I am very grateful to only have to worry about getting my feet wet! At least the majority of the world is united in efforts to bring life saving supplies into the country and 500 metric tonnes left Ireland, mostly with volunteer drivers carrying aid this week. And in a gesture guaranteed to irritate those in powerful positions in the Russian diplomatic circles, the road where their embassy is located in Dublin is in the process of having it’s named changed to Independant Ukraine Road! Not going to look good on any snail mail to the property or on their letterheads! It has passed council approval and just waiting for the residents of the road to sign off on it.
Goodness knows what this coming week will bring but we can only hope it is a positive outcome to talks which seem to be stalled at the moment.
On a personal level…. I have been out an about this week in quite an extraordinary way…
The collective members of Story Empire decided to give me a surprise party on Thursday with all eleven authors posting their own feature showcasing my blog and books.. What a wild and wonderful day and extremely grateful for the generous boost.
