Oh, puppy!

I am pretty much banned from the office this week so, being away from the computer, am spending my time with knitting needles. So far today I have finished the Sea Fever scarf, have 7/10 of the leg pattern done on one Green ‘n Growlly, and have some more Sunset Strip done. Tonight I will try to get the Green ‘n Growlly heel turned. (thinks: should I have called that project Grreen ‘n Grrowlly?)

In the post today, my bottle of Eucalan. I unwrapped it and read the directions, then left it on the table while I made a risotto for lunch.

I heard Nell barking furiously, and went to see what the problem was…

I guess she didn’t like the taste of Eucalyptus and Lavender!

I have now decanted what was left of the Eucalan into a glass pickle jar and plan to wash the pine cone scarf tomorrow, while Mr L is otherwise engaged in a conference call for several hours and I am on animal-minding duties for the day, and cannot go spinning.

I kept a close eye on the pup this afternoon. She seems unsettled, with a slightly squitty tummy, but none too bad for her adventure, all things considered. On the other hand, if she does needs a trip to the vet tomorrow, well – I can at least do some more green sock knitting… and the Pine Cone can wait until part 2 of the conference call, on Friday. Busy week this week.

And now I have to vacate the office again. *sigh*

(I wonder if this will post? There is a large download going on and we don’t have much bandwidth here until February)

Gill – if you read this, can you call in tomorrow en route to spinning if you have time, please? I have something for you to take along and to think about. (I can’t get into my mail just now.)

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
