Over the Hill

We are going “Over the hill to Boloquoy Mill” today, on a little photo safari. The weather isn’t bad, but it isn’t brilliant either – so I am hoping some cloud clears before 12:00

I have been finding camera bits and bobs and changing batteries etc. Just need to wax my boots and make a sandwich. I am really looking forward to my day and hoping to come home with some photos that I can share.

Knitting is not going well. I seem to lack the will at present – probably because of that thing in the sitting room loom-ing over me!  However, I did eventually pick up the currently active project last right and finished a second repeat. It is looking very bonny and I really must get some photos done soon.  Despite those two facts, I do find myself itching to cast on for a “quick hit” project. It’s madness. Just madness. But I do feel in the mood for a one skein/fat needle/finished in a day or two project. A colourful one, to feast my eyes upon while I work.

Do you know what I mean?

Almost the weekend! I have a Biryani to look forward to, and some deferred Socialising. That and the laundry. Hey ho.

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

    I really must wear my reading glasses at the computer, I thought you’d written ‘wax my boobs’ 😉
