Back on the wagon and back on with the boots

We had rather fallen from the diet wagon in recent weeks but today saw me whipping up a quick 500 calories in the form of grilled salmon with pesto, accompanied by a huge pile of veggies dressed with garlic and lemon and a very few tiddly new potatoes. We’ll try to stick to it and I shall find ways of managing to keep on the straight and narrow when we are away in Brunhilde.

I might have mounted  the treadmill but the sun was shining. I checked the forecast and the Met Office told me that there was a better than 95% chance of my keeping dry. Hey ho – on with the boots, tripod in rucksack and camera about neck.

Today is of course Derelict Thursday over at Blipfoto and inspired by friedaquilter there, I headed off to Cross Kirk.

Friedaquilter has a blog for her local kirkyard. I’m wondering if that would be a fun project for me to tackle.

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
