Snail mail today from the land of oz. A letter plus a postcard, both from Rosie.

I am having a wonderful afternoon – spinning at my wheel, with a good movie (Honeydripper) on the iplayer. Another hour or so should see the first quarter of my roving spun. I may have the first skein completed by the weekend, which would put me well on schedule for having the wheel cleared for the Tour. I still marvel at how much faster woollen spinning is than worsted-style spinning.

It will be good to have an opening window in the kitchen again, too – not to mention being able to come and go through the front door once more.

Oddly, I am quite excited by the thought of home improvement, for once.

Lots to do – I’m going to Kirkwall on Thursday, and  that leaves me with a short week in which to achieve everything that needs to be done.

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
