Almost FO Friday

Hello Friday, it is good to see you wheel around again. We have a finished object… kind of. The Clapotis lurched to an end last night and now needs some stitches uravelling and a wash and block. Unfortunately I made something of a mess of the finishing section and I am inclined to reknit it. I was being mean with my yarn, and that was a stupid idea.

Items in need of blocking now: Bridgewater, Clapotis (maybe) and a Ripley.

Good news on the photography front — Mr L has sent away for a new card reader for me. This means that I shall soon be able to take a more reasonable shot of the yarn that I wish to show you on Tuesday. My pocket camera refuses to show it as anything other than a true blue, which it most definitely is not.

I seem to be battling a virus. Feeling mugwumpish because of that, so I am not hanging around here. I am going to make spaghetti and meatballs and then crack on with Mingus sock number 2.  What I should be doing is re-tidying my workroom, which now has sock yarn all over the floor, but I want to be ready to start Gordes on Tuesday.

Have a good weekend.

I wonder if Mr L will let me put the heating on today or if I should go find my thermals. I feel very shivery.

Bare Naked

We are home again, after a month-long trip away. A trip during which I completely failed to get my laptop out. It was good to come home. We were driving along, close to Le Dorat at the time, when I felt that “aren’t we fortunate to live in such a lovely part of France” feeling washing over me. 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

Ah, the windy highway. The last time we came down here our awning blew open… Thankfully it’s not even close to being that windy today. Phew. Not so good now that the tolls have been removed and there are HGVs to contend with. A bit macho, your Spanish lorry driver.. #livereportingfromtheroad #Spain #autumn2020

Rather a different day today but still warm, with 24 degrees expected by the time that we reach Ribamar. Those Happy Hour beers will be tempting. Shopped this morning before leaving, to find the Christmas Turron had arrived overnight. I confess; we spent an inordinate amount on Turron and chocolate. #livereportingfromtheroad #Spain #autumn2020
