Oh dear

I really am very, very tired indeed. Just ready to slump but unfortunately I have a meeting to go to tonight. I shall need matchsticks to keep my eyes open…

I almost got up at 4am. I almost got up at 5am. I seem to have nodded off at around 6am, but had to take Nell out at 7am. I got on with making a tomato sauce for lunchtime pasta, and whipped up some nutty meringues as my gluten-free offering for today. I had made the brownies yesterday and the gingerbread had been maturing since the weekend. All together, a fine spread for the spinning ladies today.

With one and another thing, I got no spinning done this morning, but I made up for that by getting my wheel out after lunch and I have a skein to show for my efforts.

There are ten repeats done on the Clapotis and two on the Spiraluscious that I began yesterday. I could finish the both of them if I didn’t have to go out later…

The sun showed his face today. The wind has dropped a long way and it has been dry almost all day. I was practically roasting when I went out to clean the salt spray off my windows so that the spinners could have some daylight. One day like this is worth all the bad weather that we get. On the other hand, we still have no mobile phone service, and some land lines are still not working. I think that everyone has electricity now, though.

Van Nessa : Her Leak

Home from Melle, we set about cleaning the van in preparation for going out again. At the moment we are hoping to go out for at least one night every week in continuing efforts to break the cats in (or down!) Mr Snail was cleaning the bathroom. Although we haven’t used the shower we had… Continue reading Van Nessa : Her Leak
