This, that, and the other

Proof reading went well last night. Just a few tiny alterations to make now, then the copy can go off for external proofing. It should be away to the printers next week and we are planning a launch party in early May. Woo Hoo! First, though, we have to have the Sticky Party – and stick 2,000 CDs into 2,000 books. That should be fun. No, seriously – I think we should make it a fun event, beer and pizza and lots of glue dots…  kind of glue-til-you-drop…

Spinning this morning was at M’s, where we had chocolate-dipped strawberries and ginger cake (warm from the oven). I did spin! I managed over an hour before it became too uncomfortable, and I switched to my knitting.

We made plans for Monday, when a fellow Raveler is coming to Sanday. We shall do a knit-and-meet-the-natives, followed by a trip up the island to see William at Orkney Angora. It should be fun.

More on this, maybe tomorrow, but later certainly.

Also today – I got my Alpine Butternut and my Northern Neighbour projects washed. The cowl is about dry and I  managed to photograph it and do an FO post. The scarf is still very wet – and turned out to be far too long for my blocking table! Maybe pictures tomorrow

Got to dash – there’s a hot bath waiting for me, and going cold fast!

Nature is red in tooth and claw and nobody knows this better than a person that shares their life with cats… At 4 am today there was a thud, followed closely by another thud, and another. It sounded curiously like a rather fat cat pouncing on something. “Has Dusty brought some prey in?” The Crooked Man went to investigate. Dusty had indeed brought some prey in and when he saw his dad, he let goContinue readingDecember Reflections 4: Red

In a pickle

Shops are now open to sell anything on their shelves and we are no longer restricted to purchasing whatever some government official has deemed to be “essential”. We popped out to The Shed yesterday as I needed some parcel tape to package up some things that I need to be posting off. We had to hunt, it wasn’t in the Stationery section, but we eventually found it in the DIY area. It’s not of greatContinue readingIn a pickle
