Still lagging

I am still all behind and look to be in no danger of catching up any time soon, either. Ah, well,

Tomorrow I am zooming into town to get my hair shorn. It’s not so very long just now but I like it short and easily-managed when I am camping. Brunhilde has failed her MOT but can be readily fixed without benefit of spare parts and may be collected any time from this weekend. Mr L is keen to have a trip away as soon as possible, having been confined to barracks since February.

I picked up my Warriston project yesterday as promised, finding the body section to be done and ready to split off the under-arm sections. That piece is now suspended and I am working my way up one sleeve, having completed the cuff section and reached the shaping. It is such a simple knit that I would be quite foolish not to take it away with me, if and when we go.

Having kept one travel project back when Brunhilde went away (I knew that I would need knitting when we go to collect her) I do have something for the ferry tomorrow and will likely not carry Warriston around on me when a foot passenger.

Now, it’s a short day in town as I am not going until the second boat. It arrives at 1:30pm and I am in the hairdressers for about half an hour from 2pm. The boat leaves Kirkwall at 4:40pm – what shall I do for my free two hours? Camera required, I reckon. There is no cruise liner in tomorrow, so not too many visitors underfoot – always a good thing. I’m thinking of looking around the Bishop’s Palace.

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

Here, there, everywhere – and nowhere at all

Where do all these yawning gaps come from? Aha – this time I have the answer – I have been busy updating Scattered Thoughts! After a couple of very long posts, time and energy were lacking for coming here to write and as little else had happened other than a shopping delivery or two, it seemed unimportant.Also spending far too much time at Facebook, which I am trying to give up but it keeps onContinue readingHere, there, everywhere – and nowhere at all

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
