Is it the weekend yet?

June! How on earth did that happen?

Would it not be nice if we could have some June weather? Today is better, much better, than the appalling weather that we had yesterday but it’s nothing like June.

Yesterday passed in a blur of packing, cleaning, tidying and moving. The room where I sit now is ready for Mr L to move his desk in. I have further work to do before my desk moves across the room. We wasted a lot of time seeking the special leg that joins our two desks together but it is now found and we are good to go.

We have agreed to continue preparing for the move for the rest of this week and will actually shift desks on Friday, leaving the weekend for getting the connections working again. I may be off line if things do not go well.

I’m looking at a busy week if I go to Kirkwall, as I should. Outline plans have me going on Wednesday but as I am spending Thursday with Kirkwall’s U3A Photography group, touring the island, I am not overly excited at the idea of flogging into town the day before – and it does of course take time away from the Great Desk Clearing Project. I also want to go through my filing cabinet to see what I can junk before moving it. It’s very heavy indeed.

However, sitting here moaning about it all isn’t going to make it happen. I need to get on and also have to make  a pan of soup for lunch. It’s all go.

Catch you later.

EDIT: having discovered 30 Days Wild I am back-tagging this post as I think that my Monday Outlook shot has the bases covered.  There are tags #30DaysWild and #MyWildLife and I also created a Category of Wild Island.

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

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
