Further Dull

Lovely day today – I should be out with my camera. I’m not.

The garage is kind of tidied. To the extent that a lot of stuff has been designated as rubbish and hence bonfire fodder and the remainder has been stacked in a tidier fashion, that is. At least there is now space for the incoming three pallets of tiles and adhesive.

I had a stroke of brilliance today. Not all that brilliant really. Pretty obvious in fact. However I was the one to think of it and therefore get the Brownie points. I asked in that pseudo-simple way that we women have to perfect at times: “Could we not use your engine hoist to help get the Rayburn out?” and “might the trolley jack be useful too?

In the course of the day I discovered four unused fluorescent tubes. I’ll need to get an ad into the shops locally to see if anyone can make use of them.

The sofa is now in here. I still need to bring the pine chest up but when I tried it I found out I lacked the necessary strength. Help is required. I’ll go see i f he’s recovered from his tidying up exertions…

Ends have been sewn in on socks and Rainstorm Shawl. The Shawl is lovely. I still need to sew up the matinee jacket. I’ll maybe tackle that tomorrow.

I’m suggesting we head pub-ward for our meal today. I fancy the Thai Chicken Curry, actually. I could take my knitting with me.

Tomorrow I hope to sift through my photo files and see if I can find some entries for the Show. If I can, I’ll take them into town for printing.

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
