Not half bad

It’s a fair day today. The featured pic was taken this morning when I put my rubbish out at the gate – snapping a selection to choose from for my now regular Monday morning Blip, the Monday Outlook. Today I was inspired by my sister-in-law to get out my polarising filter and make some use of it.


There was actually a Skylark singing overhead when I took this and I later saw a pair of Oystercatchers on the wing. Spring is definitely going to get here this year. Maybe not yet, but sooner or later.

  • Momentous day today – the mortgage is paid in full and the house is all ours.
  • I seem to need a sensor clean on my camera – this scares the wits out of me, I must say.
  • No sign of the Aga yet

  • Too many signs of rodents however and a nasty rat has been chewing up the car, including wires that now need investigation and repair, so I can’t take the car to Spinning.
  • Feedback from Amazon tells me that recent purchases of Camera Backpack, 2x lens extender and tripod lens mount are already on their way to me. I shall be hijacking Norma at the door for the next few days!
  • Denali is growing rapidly but I have a wary eye on several of the yarns, which are dissipating at a rate of knots.
  • Dave Wheeler  has changed his weather forecast so we have stopped planning a getaway this coming weekend.

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
