We loved to do little things, visit villages with funny names just because they have funny names, go to peculiar museums – e.g. a brick museum, go to see a pile of stones in a field, which might be very old but actually are just a pile of stones. We used to go to places some people think are dull, and maybe they are, but we’d be excited by a watergate, a bit of old town wall, a small and rather dull town park, an information board, ghost-signs.
Will we ever do these little things again with such carefree innocence?
April 30th 2021 would’ve been Captain Tom Moore’s 101st birthday; in recognition and in remembrance of his achievement, a new challenge was announced by his family. They challenged ordinary folk to complete a hundred somethings to raise more funds for The Captain Tom Foundation – ‘whether you bake 100 cupcakes or walk 100 laps – help celebrate Captain Tom’s achievements.’ The official ‘Captain Tom 100’ has now finished, but I’ve challenged myself to write a 100 word blog each day for 100 days. I started on May 1st and when I complete my task, I’ll donate £100 to his Foundation.
