Today is, as my old ma used to say, “a bit miz“. I had hoped to go to town and fetch home some fresh food but Mr L had counselled me that this storm was imminent and that it was likely this afternoon’s boat would not be sailing. he was right – I just heard that it was cancelled, so well done to my old man for stopping me from going out and being stranded.

Turned out to be a good day for sticking my pot of home-made baked beans to our ribs, though!

Mr L tells me that next weekend is set to be a great deal better, so much so that he wants to dust Brunhilde off and go seek some different scenery. There is plenty of time yet for the forecast to change but we are keeping an eye on it and doing some outline planning, though not actually packing the van yet. No, that would be foolish and hasty and bound to bring on the wrath of the weather gods.

It reminds me however that I still need to write up our previous trip. Perhaps I should just knuckle down and get on with it instead of just mouthing?

I still haven’t rifled through my knitting UFOs.

What shall I do this afternoon – write up Brunhilde’s blog, knit on Hugo, or find my alternative knitting project? I find my hands straying in Hugo’s direction. Can I have him finished in time to wear next weekend? No. Not feasible. So perhaps I should tackle something else instead.

Maybe I’ll just go and make a cake for coffee time.

Feeling a bit seedy

Nell and I went for a walk this morning. It was a gorgeous day but we ended up by not going very far. The Crooked Man had gone out and I was expecting a parcel delivery. Plus, I was finding it hard going. Not feeling on top of my game right now. Possibly a touch of “Keto Flu”? I’d like to think so, but honestly haven’t been working hard enough at it to have gotContinue readingFeeling a bit seedy

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
