Spinning day

Spinning day today and I feel that I really don’t want to go. Socialising feels like too much effort right now. In fact, everything feels like too much effort at present – I think I must need to up my medication. I’m hoping to get sufficient of the BFL spun up today to allow me to ply my first two bobbins. Between having no time/no interest and it spinning up so fine, this feels like a marathon effort. I did manage to spin half a bobbin last Wednesday, maybe I’ll complete it today. Maybe not.

I’m a bit worried that my first bobbin is far more finely spun. Clearly, with getting so little time to practise lately, I’m losing the knack that had been developing quite well. Still, it’s all a learning experience. – isn’t it? All the same, I’ll be far happier once the pup has settled down sufficiently for me to immerse myself in my spinning and get some real work done.

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
