Yesterday was St George's Day and I saw more places with the flag of St George (a red cross on a white background) outside than I have for years. Not since England was doing well in the World Cup a decade or more ago. Cafes, pubs, churches, schools and all sorts of places - some of them with long strings of multiple flags. Public buildings normally fly the Union Jack at full mast on St George's Day but for some reason Heswall Fire Station had two flags out - A Union Jack at Full mast and a Union Jack at half mast. How strange.
Thanks for stopping by! Would you like a cup of tea or coffee? And please, sit for a spell. If you enjoy my posts, please feel free to follow me or subscribe to my blog.

I'm a blogger - and nowadays that seems to be my main occupation. Rambles from My Chair is my main blog. I’m a retired local government executive - now studying how to survive a neurological disorder that gives me various problems but, hopefully, a whole new outlook on life and an increased sense of humour and perspective. There is a saying in Sweden "man måste vara frisk för att orka vara sjuk" ~ "you have to be well to cope with being ill"....
I enjoy most forms of communication and postcards are a special favourite. I used to blog as Scriptor Senex which is Latin for Old Writer but now Google only lets me post as John Edwards.
