Houston, we have a problem…

The bread is made and the old door has been removed. The new frame went in easily but the drill bit broke in drilling the first hole.  Our island location is a wee bit of a problem at times such as this. Mr L has ordered a new bit but it will take days to come and we shall be without a front door until such time as postie delivers. I could go into town tomorrow but that means a ten hour day when there is no guarantee of finding what is needed.


I harvested a mere handful of rosehips this morning – although the fruits look red and ripe, they are not yet yielding. I also noted that long sleeves and heavy gloves will be needed before a serious assault on the bushes!

It remains a beautiful day. The wind has freshened considerably now and it has turned into a perfect drying day. The first load has been brought back in, the second is on the line and the third is about to come out of the washer.  With two batches of bread made and the dishwasher emptied, filled, and washed again – I’m actually feeling extraordinarily productive today. Perhaps I can motivate myself to knit later on. Still have cat trays to do – somehow they never seem to do themselves.

The new Leisure Battery for the van has just been delivered. One more tick off the list.

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
