Thought for the Month

Maureen’s Meanderings – March 2023

Tomorrow I am planning on going with my daughter and her crazy dog for a romp on the beach. We will then go on to Mablethorpe and join the children in the arcade and play the 2p slot machines. When we have finished getting excited if we win 2p back or complaining when...

Maureen’s Meanderings – February 2023

Love is all around! Well, it is most the time, but we are all very aware of it in February. Love is a very strange but wonderful emotion. It must be the only entity that the more of it that you use the more there is of it. When two people fall in love they are...

Maureen’s Meanderings – January 2023

Although it is only January I am going away with my friends, for a few days, to Lindisfarne. We have been there a couple of times before. It is one of our favourite places. One of the things I am planning is to walk across the Pilgrim Way preferably barefoot, but I...

Maureen’s Meanderings – December

The trees have lost their leaves. Winter is coming now! There is something about winter that is lovely. There is a comfortable feeling about sitting in front of a fire snuggled up in big sweaters or wrapped in a rug whilst watching old familiar films on the...

Maureen’s Meanderings – November

Maureen’s Meanderings – September

I was talking to someone the other day and we were commenting on how hard it is to ask for help. Most of us if not all of us have helped someone else and really thought little of it. Some taller people (not me) will get stuff off the higher shelves in supermarkets...

Maureen’s Meanderings – August

During the summer months the television channels seem to only have repeats, so I have been finding books to read. I would like you to believe that I have been improving my mind and reading hefty tomes of intelligent literature, but I am afraid that would be misleading...

Maureen’s Meanderings – July

Some of you will have guessed by now that I love nature and gardens. I mostly garden without gloves on because I like to feel the soil. Today I went to Whisby Garden Centre and spent a lovely time wandering round looking at all the plants. This year everything seems...

Maureen’s Meanderings – June

What a month this is going to be. As I write there are activities being organised in every town and village to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s platinum jubilee. It looks like we can all have a wonderful time at any number of parties and events. It is always special...
