Great selection of links today! Many thanks for your efforts. Now that we are all housebound, educational reading such as this becomes increasingly he'd to keep our sense of isolation at bay. Never doubt that your links are well appreciated.

Always appreciated Ann B. 🙂

A fair choice to go through, but with all this free time that's been dropped in our laps...

Thanks for the links Ann.

You read so much about Alex and Nicola not getting on, but does anyone actually have any evidence to that effect?

To my mind this statement from her sums it up. She told the Scottish parliament in January 2019: “It seems to me that I am being simultaneously accused of being involved in a conspiracy against Alex Salmond, and also of colluding with Alex Salmond. Nothing could be further from the truth in both of those — neither of those things are true.”

It's my self-isolation birthday today. Spending it dreaming of freedom. Freedom for my country and freedom for myself to get out and about again, travel extensively and get the half-decent meal that my husband and family promised me, lol.

Hope this finds you all well XX

 

Aw, Happy Birthday Petra.  I was going to put up the Happy Birthday song but it has other connotations now, so have this song from my home town instead

Thanks for the happy birthday wishes Ann X
