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.

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.
