Meet the pets
This is Dwight being cute.
Moosh doesn't really understand how a cat bed works... But as long as she's happy!
Bollo checking out a spider
This is Frida. She joined our family 2 weeks ago and is settling in really well. She's a cockapoo. Today she had her first puppy training session. She had a brilliant time. We can't wait to bring her to the Rep!
Gladys - she is an 11 year old cocker spaniel, named after my Welsh Aunty, she was going to be called Box but she was so much a Gladys that she chose her own name
Exhibition of unusual objects
Japanese tea party
A garden of imagination made up from a collection of memories
We left our Christmas tree up in January because we were listing the house for sale and the decorations make the house look nice - in winter, that is. Since the lockdown the seasons have changed but it's remained up, partly due to laziness and partly in the hope we can get out of lockdown and work on getting it sold soon.
Crazy Artifacts and treasures
This was posted to our building.
Delicious Pancakes fruit and maple syrup
Ice cream and chocolate
On the left is Sally the Sourdough Starter. Whist there's been no yeast on the shelves the shops, she has been dutifully growing every day since lockdown, and has been keeping us is going with bread, pizza, flatbreads, tortillas, and even crumpets! Good old Sally!
My favourite lockdown food has been warm toast with melted butter...
Lessons from lockdown
I can still help others even from home in lockdown
Sometimes it really is the simplest things that can give you the most joy 😍😉😄
I’m definitely learning more about technology, and speaking to people using ZOOM! Who knew! me and technology are becoming the best of friends - well getting there 😂
Learning how to embroider
An object that has taken on new significance
During lock down my husband and I – both in our seventies – have a daily walk which takes us onto the Arbroath Cliff Path. We debate before we arrive there as to whether or not we will see the lighthouse. Some days it is shrouded in haar, some days the visibility is too poor, other days it is just visible and looks like a stick on the horizon– but when the visibility is good and the sun shines on it you can get a clear view. It is so heart lifting to see something which has stood there for over 200 years and it has definitely become an “object of significance” at this peculiar time in our lives.
My Alexa for my endless music and chat ( one way of course.) And my kindle and rediscovering my love for reading
My special thing is my iPad because when I got it I just used it for games but now I use it for work, getting in touch with people and playing now. My iPad has been a big help in lockdown.
My tablet is my link to the world outside!
During lockdown I have had loads of extra time to play my violin which I love!
Lockdown News Story
For the past weeks residents of a street in the West End of Dundee have been working together to improve their shared back garden. Upgrades include new plants, festoons of lights and a hand-made bench made of recycled wooden pallets! Thanks to Viktoria, Denis and Matthias for leading the way!
Layla has been enjoying singing & dancing as part of the children’s national care home talent show for residents of care homes around the uk.
My beautiful granddaughter Rebecca, she has epilepsy and has multiple fits weekly. At the start of lockdown she was put on a new drug, since then she has had no fits, so it seems to be working. Fingers crossed!
I’ve been spending lots of time in the garden with a cup of coffee and chatting to family and friends on the phone
A place in Dundee that is important to you
Balgay hill I have many fond child hood memories from this area & you can see views over Dundee, you can see significant landmarks of Dundee such as coxes stack, the law and the rail bridge. There are so many pathways to explore up here and we are lucky to have it right on our doorstep
A tranquil place a few minutes away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life
This photo dates from 2009 and was taken as a publicity pic for my stint on The Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square, London as part of Antony Gormley's One&Other public art project. It's important to me because it combines two of my great loves, architecture and sculpture, and I'm proud that we have a Frank Gehry building and an Antony Gormley sculpture right here in Dundee, less than 5 minutes from my home. Off to the right hand side you can see the slopes down to a simple labyrinth which is a great place to incorporate a meditative walk into your daily exercise . As we walk past the Maggie's Centre during these lockDown Days its business as usual Their important work continues. This little corner of Dundee, to the south of Ninewells Hospital has a very special place in my heart .
My favourite place is closed! OMG!
Dundee was the first place I ever lived on my own and this photo is taken on one of my many adventure walks through the city and up the surrounding hills. It was a really formative time in my life and Dundee will always hold a special place in my heart.
