pear tree log: I started this blog to keep my younger son, Jonny, in touch with life in Lincolnshire, while he spent a year working in China. That year turned into five! Now he is home and training to become a physics teacher. This is simply a patchwork quilt of some of the things I enjoy - life in rural Lincolnshire, our animals, friends, architecture, books, the gardens, and things of passing interest.

Greetings to You, Jonny

Hi Jonny,

I am on one of my nocturnal rambles.  While waiting for the kettle to boil I had a check on emails, blog, etc.  

I noticed that I've had a couple of visits from someone in Cambodia and also South Korea, so I am assuming that it was you.  Still no news about Davina, although she is suddenly blooming and looks really well.  I'll let you know, via text, email, blog, etc. as soon as there is any news.

The new lamp is now in situ and is proving very useful, the channelling in the corner of the utility room has been filled, smoothed and is in the process of being painted before the coat racks can go back up.  You will have no cause to complain about the standard of workmanship!!

The storms and winds of last week brought lots of small branches down,  as well as a few larger ones, so we will have to have a tidying session in the wood, one day this week.  We also need to do a bit of branch trimming because the telephone line is perilously close to being whipped around by some of them - again.  I think we'll have to go for a fairly vigorous trim along that side of the wood.

Right, bed is calling to me now.

When do you go back to work?  Anyway, enjoy what remains of your holiday.  Drop a line when you can.

Lots of love,



  1. Hello Elaine....
    I, too, am on one of my ramblings in the middle of the nite. And my drink is decaf green tea, in hopes that I can go back to sleep. I feel as though you are sharing Jonny with me. I'm so glad I'm connected to you via this blog. Thanks for all your kind words of comments on my blog.

  2. Hi Meggie, I often find that around 2 or 3am my mind becomes very active - nothing useful, or creative, just active.

    Little did Jonny realise what he was starting when he encouraged me to begin this blog. However, I am so glad that he did because I love meeting people like you, chatting and getting glimpses of the things you do - if that doesn't sound too voyeuristic!

    I hope you are having sweet dreams.
