Today

  • The rubbish is out
  • The laundry is on
  • We have elected not to make bread today
  • I shall be making chicken stew and dumplings later
  • I plan to attack the workroom today

  • I would also like to take some WIP and FO photos but it is very grey again today.

But what I would really like to be doing is to light a fire (can’t) and curl up with: chocolate, a good book, coffee, and my knitting – on a regular rotation. A good three-hankie film would be nice too (but we don’t have a telly.)

Wake me up when the sun shines, please.

EDIT: still no Yarn Yard club yarn mailing… but I did get the letter inviting me for an interview for the job that I applied for. Apart from that, just junk, no swaps or other interesting mail.

On the 6 am toilet run, the world was looking fairly well white all over (as viewed through the window from my bed, that is). When we first came house-hunting around here there was snow on the ground (apparently a once inContinue readingThe Cold Light of Day

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
