…to some random meanderings…


I felt the world really needed ready access to the intermittent, scattergun thoughts of an ageing, early retiree Yorkshirewoman living in wildest Worcestershire. So I finally did something about it…


Probably just an excuse to let off steam, upload some photographs, bring some family history into the light of day, and add a few musings and assorted oddities that amuse, intrigue or befuddle me. The vintage music collection fell into that category…

This is me, Ruth, in rather cuter days,  many decades ago in Nigeria.  Now much older, though not necessarily a lot wiser, and many cats later… 

Married to Stewart for – eek – almost 40 years now…

An avid photographer

with a lovely daughter we are both so proud of – she’s a nurse, now a Sister – and we now have a (much-exploited) son-in-law.

How can our gorgeous daughter be a grandma? Aargh.

We have two grandchildren

The GD is also lovely and a talented photographer but will call curses upon me for putting this up…

The grandson – now a proud dad.

and most scarily, a  great-granddaughter, the GGD, born in 2012…
