Bitting and bobbing

Today has gone past in a flash, though not due to any productivity on my part. I have sat here at my computer and for most of the day I have been sorting and choosing images for submission into the Sanday Show and preparing them for going to the printer. It took an age and I became perfectly boggle-eyed by the end of it. I enlisted Mr L to choose the best of them with me.

Today’s featured image is one contender that failed to make the cut.

The day has also seen my tweaking of this web site a little further and a re-naming. I’m not sure I have the name right. I may change it again.

Also today – I completed the A Hap for Harriet. Tomorrow I will wash and block it. It is less than perfect.

It has been a wet and grey day but this did not prevent dozens of swallows from being on the wing. The year is speeding by and the wee ones are already feeding up in readiness for leaving these shores. They take off from our roof and fly low over the ripening barley in the field next to our garden, catching flies before coming back to land on the roof again. I should love to capture them with my camera but they are way too fast for me… plus I was getting raindrops on my lens. I came back and sat at my computer again and settled for listening to the swallows chattering on the roof above my head.

So, very little done – and I’m not starting now. It’s time to print off the Guardian Prize Crossword, pour a drink and head for bed. I hope it’s drier tomorrow, I need to get some laundry done. Also tomorrow: bread-baking and spinning group. I may take my photos to town for printing on Tuesday.

Determinedly Cheering Myself Up

Week five of lockdown v2.0 begins today. We have new rules, slightly more relaxed but with the addition of a nightly curfew (from 15th December.) Does that then make this Lockdown v2.1? I think that it probably does! … Continue readingDeterminedly Cheering Myself Up
