Autumn

What a wonderful season Autumn is. In the past we have treated you to a cornucopia of golden leaves. This year it’s a little different for a million reasons. We desperately miss London. Ask us what we miss most about London and we would have to say St Martin in the Fields. A wonderful church,…


Sherrylea’s Story.

Sherrylea gave us her email. It didn’t work. Oh well. Maybe she will pick up on Mindfully Bertie. That would be nice. The story that follows was told by her to Bobby. It was to have been checked by her, but is now entirely from his memory. Transcribed that evening like all the other Gower…

Memories of California Emmylou Harris


Breakfast at the Bluebird Café

Bertie: “Bobby, what are we doing today?” Bobby: “We are going to Andrew’s. Morris the Mechanic is servicing the car’s brakes.”


Covid-19 Guided Walk for One. Number 4: West Park, Wolverhampton

Bertie: “‘ere, Bobby. Tim, our Technical Director, says we can have this weekend off. He says he wants to show you that you are not the only one who can go out for a walk and take lots of photographs! Apparently there are green spaces even in somewhere they call the Black Country.”    …

Not far from RHS Wisley Gardens. Just about this time, in April. They went and loved it. Particular the charity run garden tea….


Lost in a Dream

Lost in a Dream. It’s the morning after New Year’s Eve. Bobby is sitting bolt upright in bed. He has had a shocking dream. Everly Brothers 1960, when they were the greatest. It wasn’t a nightmare, because most of it seemed OK. Just the end when he woke up. So, he had a cup of…


Sometimes Always Never. Memories from a film.

Sometimes Always Never. There is a “box” at Laurel Cottage. It has a lid. On the lid is the inscription… “Bereavement”.


Belonging: 150 Stories from Mindfully Bertie.

150 stories from Mindfully Bertie! Yes dear, loyal friends, this is our 150th story. (Bobby prefers “story” to “blog”). Who could have thought that when we wrote the first one that we called a “preview”, we would still be going strong at 150? I should read that preview now… and see if we have kept…
