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?

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.

Seems to me that making plans is a complete waste of time! Once again the weather gods have a different set of plans to our own but hey, ho, we are happy to go where the wind blows… or the tide drifts, or whatever. More like where the wind doesn’t blow, though. The weather gods… Continue reading Aft agley

Tonight’s view from the van is of olive groves and cloud. We have decided to spend only one night here and will move on to Olvera tomorrow.
