Oh dear, what a murky day it is! Grey and very wet indeed. I do hope that the weather will not be like this when we go away. It’s a bit early to be looking that far ahead so I’ll just square my shoulders and hope for the best. At least the current forecast for my day in town mid-week is pretty reasonable at the moment. I do hope to take my camera with me.

Just for today however it is hard to find the energy to do anything much. I’ve done what is necessary and now I am considering whether or no to bake. The trouble is, I am having a yeast crisis. I need to go to the shop when it opens this afternoon but the weather is very much putting me off.

Mr L’s clever trick with the campervan shower head came adrift. We have mis-matched connector sizes. He’s having a day off today so problem-solving will happen later.

I think I may and try to tidy my workroom a little – we are getting into indoor photography season, by the current look of things. At the moment I have no space to set up in and some very untidy background. Much work is required. I shall need to burn some lights though. I can barely see a hand in front of my face in this murk.

Speaking of burning power – we have the central heating on today. Not so much because it is needed (it isn’t); the weather may be grey and wet but at least it remains warm. It’s more because we want to check that nothing died over the summer. There is nothing worse than turning the boiler on when the first cold day strikes and then finding that it won’t run. BTDTGTTS.

I’ve been in and out of the front porch all morning, emptying cat trays and sorting rubbish for tomorrow morning’s collection. We are both very pleased with how much warmer that end of the house is already. Changing all the doors was exactly what was needed. When the windows are finished, it’s going to be really cosy. Once the new range goes in it will positively toasty, I’ll bet.

Still no knitting done – not for weeks. I need to give myself a big boot up the bum.

Was looking up a start date for the 2014 SUMS Puzzle Hunt this morning but could not find one. Anybody know when it starts?

Bare Naked

We are home again, after a month-long trip away. A trip during which I completely failed to get my laptop out. It was good to come home. We were driving along, close to Le Dorat at the time, when I felt that “aren’t we fortunate to live in such a lovely part of France” feeling washing over me. I had a sudden urge to invite all my friends to come and stay and to shareContinue readingBare Naked

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. 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

Ah, the windy highway. The last time we came down here our awning blew open… Thankfully it’s not even close to being that windy today. Phew. Not so good now that the tolls have been removed and there are HGVs to contend with. A bit macho, your Spanish lorry driver.. #livereportingfromtheroad #Spain #autumn2020

Rather a different day today but still warm, with 24 degrees expected by the time that we reach Ribamar. Those Happy Hour beers will be tempting. Shopped this morning before leaving, to find the Christmas Turron had arrived overnight. I confess; we spent an inordinate amount on Turron and chocolate. #livereportingfromtheroad #Spain #autumn2020
