It’s SATURDAY. I should have remembered that this morning but didn’t and so I missed going to the Heritage Centre to spin. I still cannot get used to these three-day weeks and am constantly addled about which day of the week that it is. So, sorry, Gill.

Being Saturday it is Curry Day but for a change, Mr L is not making me a curry and I am cooking a steak for him instead.  It feels a little overly-meaty, having had the barbecue going on Thursday but the meat does need using. I mitigated the situation by making a veggie meal yesterday (Tagliatelle with  Mushrooms and Fennel).

Norma brought me a package this morning that I was not expecting. Mr L bought me a surprise. A lovely new… vacuum cleaner. It’s a rechargeable hand-held one, very small and easy to fit into the RV when we go full-timing.

Thank you, dear

Norma also brought an envelope for Mr L, a form that he is required to fill in for his employer’s pension scheme in order to get his money out. He duly completed it and this afternoon we took a walk along the road to the post box.

This one came out the best – are not these goats adorable? No other word for it. Unless it’s Angorable. Are they Angora goats? I’m not very clued about goats or matters caprine.

In Other News, I have started one sleeve of Mr L’s sweater, deciding not to knit the pair together.

Not a lot of progress made yet and I am daily more sure that this sweater will not make it to the Show bench this year.

Stuff that kept us busy for a while

There were other constructions but they don’t appear to have made it onto my camera card so are not currently available f or inclusion. Together with the daily dog walk (health permitting) and a deal of sun bathing, it all helped to pass the time and our 8 weeks were up almost before they seemed to have started. The Date Night thing was excellent. It helped to pass the time in planning, prepping and cooking.Continue readingStuff that kept us busy for a while

Where was I?

Where was I?

Now, where was I? I was saying (a long time ago) that I couldn’t get automatic posting from Instagram to work. I notice that in my absence the applet suddenly began to play nicely (1, 2, 3)! It needs some fine tuning I think. And wherever have I been and where are my Lockdown updates? It went roughly like this: After six weeks of Lockdown, on the 27th of April, I was suddenly catapulted intoContinue readingWhere was I?
