Two years since our Warrior Queen re-enactment

It’s another turn-back-time today, or #TBT as the youngsters say! This time, I’m turning the clock back to June 2018, when I took part in the Warrior Queen Aethelfled re-enactment in Gloucester. The actual event took place 1100 years […]

Dig out your war posters!

It always amazes me how times change and things come in and out of fashion. The 70s flares that made a noughties comeback, the recent resurrection of the bygone bread machines and even the resurgence of tie-dye t-shirts. One […]

Gloucester’s City Mission – Yes, I’m a volunteer!

Trying to focus on the positive aspects of life right now, I thought I’d update you all on a little something I began doing a while ago. Yes, I signed up as a volunteer for Gloucester’s City Mission. If […]
