Reporting in

I was given a new toy today – a Nexus smartphone. I plan to play with it fully, though I doubt I shall make many phone calls.

There has been knitting, reported at Sanday Spinners. Both my cotton doily and my alpaca Kadril scarf are making progress now that my cardigan is finished. There have also been photographs – I took a brief trip to Stromness. I have even blipped! Kitchen activity has been low key and largely unreported.

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
