Slow return

Normality approaches, but only slowly. I nipped out to the Post Office yesterday morning to dispatch Sanday Spinners orders. I took the “new” car. On the way home it developed a very disagreeable noise.  The car is now suspended from use. I, of course had arrived home to find another order had come in during my trip to the village – I took that one down this morning, this time on foot. The best of being on foot is that it facilitates camera use. I had an enjoyable walk and arrived home with several usable shots. Even the ugly has its place.

Walking up behind this cat,

I was surprised to find that it did not move as I moved closer.

Nor did it budge when I approached it in full view. Then I realised that about 20 feet away,

was it’s opposing partner in a cat stand-off. It was so focused on its dispute with the hidden cat, I believe it never even noticed my presence.

They look like they have a family connection, don’t you think?

I completed my experiment in core-spinning yarn at Spinning Group yesterday and then washed my skein at home last night. Today I need to take some glamour shots ready for a blog post tomorrow. Today’s 5KCBW post is here. I should get a move on.

The car has to return to the garage a week on Thursday. Mr L will be taking a couple of days’ leave again, as it tacks onto the next Bank Holiday. One day soon I hope to get back to a normal routine but clearly it is not going to happen just yet. I wish that there was another 6 hours in every day.

Week five of lockdown v2.0 begins today. We have new rules, slightly more relaxed but with the addition of a nightly curfew (from 15th December.) Does that then make this Lockdown v2.1? I think that it probably does! … Continue readingDeterminedly Cheering Myself Up

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
