Catch up

There has been spinning! I went along with Gill to the annual Guide and Brownie Sale. No Brownies were available to purchase but there were some fine doughnuts, of which I was unable to partake.


The annual sale is the main source of income for our local Guides and so I was more than happy to go along and demonstrate some spinning for the afternoon.  Gill and I sat alongside the Orkney chair-making demo.



I spent some time amusing myself with the Special Effects on my camera 🙂

I went round to Gill’s on Sunday for a quick briefing on caddy lamb sitting.

Cuteness overload
A hungry threesome

I obtained my first decent loaf of bread from the Aga. I think I am beginning to get the hang of things.

A nice crusty cob

It went down well for Sunday tea with butter, cheese and a chilled cider.

It turns out that today is a Holiday. I was unprepared.

We have painted the plywood facing in the caravan.



Once the paint had dried we added some old carpet. Things are starting to look a little cosier.

I am leaving the remainder of the painting for now. We are going to put shelves in after Mr L has finished mowing the grass.

With the shelves in place I should be able to begin moving the stash in. Once I have added curtains and some pot plants, it should start to look like home.

The best news of all is that I think perhaps we may fit my big table in. Of course, that won’t leave much space to turn around in …

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

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
