The best-laid schemes o’ mice an’ men Gang aft agley

I should never make plans. It doesn’t suit me and it never works out.

I was away to town today. That was The Plan:  I had the bus to the ferry booked and my hair appointment made. I had intended to visit Ingrid Budge‘s photo exhibition and to call in at Kirkness & Gorie to see if they had any Mont d’Or left. I was going to take my camera around the kirkyard and shoot gravestones. I was hoping to call in at the glass shop for a sheet of glass to play with in my “studio”. Oh, yes, I was full of it.

So who woke up with aching bones and no voice this morning?

Now I have to figure out what to whip up for lunch, not having been to the shop for fresh veg and salad.


And especially BAH! since I found out that I could have gone to see this as well.

I wish that this was finished, then I could snuggle up nice and cosy.

I might knit some more of it. today. Perhaps in bed. I can’t get warm just now.

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
