Busy, Busy

Last week was crazy busy for various reasons, so I didn't manage to post anything here. It began with smallest daughter's First Communion and included three evenings in a row when I got home from work and had to go straight out again. Work is constantly busy - I love what I do, but we are very understaffed and it is pretty full on with no prospect of it getting easier in the short term. On the positive side I am working on a project to blog the local experience of the First World War, posting daily entries exactly one hundred years after the events they describe. I am working ahead so that I will have a few months done before it goes live in August. I have been interested in the Great War since I watched the BBC's adaptation of Vera Brittain's Testament of Youth as a teenager, so I'm thoroughly enjoying the chance to dig deeper.

I was going to write more, but got kind of distracted by a bottle of Rekorderlig peach and apricot cider. The cider was very nice but has left me feeling too sleepy to have any coherent thoughts!

The work blog sounds so interesting! I'll be looking forward to reading it.

Will this be a blog we can read?! Oh. I hope so!

This is our favourite cider bought when on special deals at Waitrose. Ian and I find one bottle shared is enough for us with our evening meal, even half a bottle makes me sleepy.

Was there an edict from on high that all local archives should have a programme marking WW1? I know the staff at our local one spent hours going through the minutes of the constituent councils to discover the impact upon the civilian population at the time.
