Oh dear

I really am very, very tired indeed. Just ready to slump but unfortunately I have a meeting to go to tonight. I shall need matchsticks to keep my eyes open…

I almost got up at 4am. I almost got up at 5am. I seem to have nodded off at around 6am, but had to take Nell out at 7am. I got on with making a tomato sauce for lunchtime pasta, and whipped up some nutty meringues as my gluten-free offering for today. I had made the brownies yesterday and the gingerbread had been maturing since the weekend. All together, a fine spread for the spinning ladies today.

With one and another thing, I got no spinning done this morning, but I made up for that by getting my wheel out after lunch and I have a skein to show for my efforts.

There are ten repeats done on the Clapotis and two on the Spiraluscious that I began yesterday. I could finish the both of them if I didn’t have to go out later…

The sun showed his face today. The wind has dropped a long way and it has been dry almost all day. I was practically roasting when I went out to clean the salt spray off my windows so that the spinners could have some daylight. One day like this is worth all the bad weather that we get. On the other hand, we still have no mobile phone service, and some land lines are still not working. I think that everyone has electricity now, though.

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
