A very odd job

48 working days to go.

Mr L’s RV task for the day was to get the Freesat working. Why? Well, when we come to sell, every little helps. Anyway, it is up and is running. We had a furtle through the channel listings.

We are now reminded why it is that we do not have television.

That said, we have been watching our way through the Green Wing boxed set on the laptop in bed of an evening and came to the Special finale last night. It has been fun. Great television and in wonderfully poor taste at many points. A pity they never made any more.

Nothing much happening here. I had a bad day today. There were tears. Feeling very down in the dumps right now  and we have neither chocolate nor alcohol to hand. I did try to shake it off by going out to bag some bruck as the day has been bright and sunny, the wind having died down overnight. Unfortunately it remains too breezy for single-handed bruck-bagging. The bags were blowing all over the place. I did shift an old wheel and tyre off the beach though. My bit for the day.

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

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

On our way again. Not far to go and no check in until 2pm so a late and lazy start to our day. I have been watching eagles. Not sure what we are going to be doing for the next few days. We want to take Nell to a vet and the outcome of that… Continue reading October 18, 2020 at 01:22PM
