Cautiously, we begin again

Letting the light back in

Well, Dreamhost have stopped complaining for now. I think that it may be time to cautiously rekindle the blog and regain some connection with the world. Unfortunately I am feeling these feels right at the point at which we have lost the use of our good data SIM and have limited transfer capability. We have minimal data on Roaming for now. I shall need to be succinct.

First things first: I have been exercising the Air Fryer and I want to update my notes on that so that next time I can recall the details and not have to re-invent wheels. In addition, I have a new kitchen toy for the van – a Thermal Cooker. I hope to keep up notes on that one too.

Both toys came in very handy in cooking various celebratory meals over the past few weeks. The Air Fryer in particular keeps on proving its value. I have no idea how I would have managed without it.

If I can find the discipline, I’ll catch up on those before beginning any “me” stuff.

As for the “me” stuff, I fear there is nothing on the crafty front to interest or entertain. I have not been busy. What I have been doing is… losing weight. I do not wish to be a bore so for now I am simply going to celebrate the fact that I have lost, to my best guess, a couple of stones and a whole dress size. So, go, me.

Mr L is also interested in losing some weight and has suggested that we attempt a low-carb lifestyle once we arrive home. I am up for it. So, we are going Keto. I would be very happy to correspond or compare advice and notes with anyone doing similarly as this is a whole new venture for me. I know nothing. Let’s be having those recipe suggestions!

Oh, for those not keeping up: I am in Portugal. In Sagres, aka The End of the World. See Two Snails for details (not up to date at this time of writing). It is eternal Summer here.

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

Feeling a bit seedy

Feeling a bit seedy

Nell and I went for a walk this morning. It was a gorgeous day but we ended up by not going very far. The Crooked Man had gone out and I was expecting a parcel delivery. Plus, I was finding it hard going. Not feeling on top of my game right now. Possibly a touch of “Keto Flu”? I’d like to think so, but honestly haven’t been working hard enough at it to have gotContinue readingFeeling a bit seedy

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
