Cautiously, we begin again

Letting the light back in

Well, Dreamhost have stopped complaining for now. I think that it may be time to cautiously rekindle the blog and regain some connection with the world. Unfortunately I am feeling these feels right at the point at which we have lost the use of our good data SIM and have limited transfer capability. We have minimal data on Roaming for now. I shall need to be succinct.

First things first: I have been exercising the Air Fryer and I want to update my notes on that so that next time I can recall the details and not have to re-invent wheels. In addition, I have a new kitchen toy for the van – a Thermal Cooker. I hope to keep up notes on that one too.

Both toys came in very handy in cooking various celebratory meals over the past few weeks. The Air Fryer in particular keeps on proving its value. I have no idea how I would have managed without it.

If I can find the discipline, I’ll catch up on those before beginning any “me” stuff.

As for the “me” stuff, I fear there is nothing on the crafty front to interest or entertain. I have not been busy. What I have been doing is… losing weight. I do not wish to be a bore so for now I am simply going to celebrate the fact that I have lost, to my best guess, a couple of stones and a whole dress size. So, go, me.

Mr L is also interested in losing some weight and has suggested that we attempt a low-carb lifestyle once we arrive home. I am up for it. So, we are going Keto. I would be very happy to correspond or compare advice and notes with anyone doing similarly as this is a whole new venture for me. I know nothing. Let’s be having those recipe suggestions!

Oh, for those not keeping up: I am in Portugal. In Sagres, aka The End of the World. See Two Snails for details (not up to date at this time of writing). It is eternal Summer here.

Captured on New Year’s Day

Recently, at the: Crooked House



It’s a reasonable day today and thus we have the back doors standing open. This means that Chloé can come and go as she pleases (she refuses to use the cat flaps and expects us to give her ingress and egress via the sitting room window). We were taking a coffee break in between sorting out the van, when we heard a strange Chloé-type noise. I did not like it. I wondered if she hadContinue readingThanks!

It has been a busy day, not much time for anything. We walked the dog this morning but I took no photographs until I decided to take a few potshots in the village on our way back.

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. Dusty came for a walk with us this afternoon, there is a track that runs straight from the campsite into the National Park. Very nice and he walked well, until the rain started and he asked to go back into his carrier! #wp #spain #cats #Dusty
