1 step forward

One step forward – I just upgraded Custard’s progress to 100% at Ravelry. I need to sew a few ends in and take photos, but they are done. If I ever shown the faintest inclination towards a mohair project again just shoot me!

One step back – I set my Spring Cap’s progress bar backwards, to reflect the fact that I ripped it back yesterday

Today, I want to spin. I am v tired and v achey and not feeling very much like engaging with anything at all. So, simple spinning only. Or maybe I’ll read one of my new library books. Whatever, it is a day for being soothed. Kenaz should fit the bill nicely if my shoulder will let me pick it up again.

Spinning and knitting generally need taking up a gear as the calls on my time next month will be intensive: the Melbourne and CISRA puzzle hunts are about to begin once again. We shall be looking for like minded individuals to join our team, Fifty-Nine Degrees North, for some head:desk proximity action. Use the comments or contact forms to get in touch if you’d like to join us. Those closer to us can just pop round and ask what the hell I am talking about…

Right, I’m off the keyboard for a couple of days now, I think. My arm needs resting.

Just now I have to tackle the culinary crisis in my kitchen. We are out of onions. A kitchen without onions does not compute. I can think of many dishes that I can’t make for lunch today, and of none that I can -so it may be home made bangers with eggs and beans today, except I can’t make baked beans because I have no onions, so it will have to be yukky beans from a  tin. I shall be getting the sack.

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
