The best-laid schemes o’ mice an’ men Gang aft agley

I should never make plans. It doesn’t suit me and it never works out.

I was away to town today. That was The Plan:  I had the bus to the ferry booked and my hair appointment made. I had intended to visit Ingrid Budge‘s photo exhibition and to call in at Kirkness & Gorie to see if they had any Mont d’Or left. I was going to take my camera around the kirkyard and shoot gravestones. I was hoping to call in at the glass shop for a sheet of glass to play with in my “studio”. Oh, yes, I was full of it.

So who woke up with aching bones and no voice this morning?

Am somewhat annoyed to find there are no contents in  any of the various proprietary medicine packets in the house

Absolutely no voice whatsoever. Scarcely even a whisper coming out. I had to get Mr L to make the phone call to cancel the bus pick up.

Now I have to figure out what to whip up for lunch, not having been to the shop for fresh veg and salad.


And especially BAH! since I found out that I could have gone to see this as well.

I wish that this was finished, then I could snuggle up nice and cosy.

I was working on the blankie at Spinning yesterday and spread it out on the floor to see how it is shaping up. I took the opportunity to photograph it but the lighting in there is awful. My blankie is much prettier than it appears in this shot.

I might knit some more of it. today. Perhaps in bed. I can’t get warm just now.

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
