White Rabbits

Without question, the meter is now ticking. Either that or there is a crocodile behind me.

If I am to get to the Show on Friday I really must get through an enormous quantity of work. Despite being busy all day today I seem to have made little forward progress. I have however got down to the wooden surface of my desk, so there’s a thing. Unfortunately, I do have to waste time doing some eBay listings to sell items that were not sold at the weekend. This is the biggest of PITAs. Not least because of the fees incurred at eBay and PayPal but mainly because the process is so slow.  I shall be taking photos, ticking boxes and writing listings for much of tomorrow when I really should be clearing Craft materials from shelves and putting out freshly-washed kitchen gadgets instead.

You know  what… I think I really am going to have to skip the Show this time. That makes me sad indeed.

Our new saucepan set arrived today. I am about to go and give it a home in Vincent’s galley drawers. At least I will be able to claim that I have started packing!

Sorry, I cannot stay and chat. Too much to do and way too little time.

Yorkshire Day tomorrow!

I had a sudden urge to invite all my friends to come and stay and to shareContinue readingBare Naked

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

We just met our first Spanish self service fuel, there has always been an attendant whenever we have fueled up on previous visits. The machine took the card, asked which pump (!?), what fuel, and how much. It chucked the ticket out, said something in Spanish, and then failed to provide any diesel. We are… Continue reading October 21, 2020 at 11:21AM
