Just a state of mind

Friday is just a state of mind and if I post Finished Objects today, then that make this FO Friday. No arguments.

Not such a silly choice, really – they are good hens for first time keepers, very docile and friendly. Not that it matters, it was Hobson’s Choice.

On the 6 am toilet run, the world was looking fairly well white all over (as viewed through the window from my bed, that is). When we first came house-hunting around here there was snow on the ground (apparently a once inContinue readingThe Cold Light of Day

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
