Turbo charged

We spent a lazy day today. Mr L feels as though he has caught a bug while he was away and is a bit sweaty and leaden-limbed so we did very little. We shredded more paper and cardboard for a third lot of paper logs, played with the dogs, and showed our faces at the Farmers’ Market and looked around the Art Exhibition. We bought a jar of pickled eggs for £1 from N, and a soft toy sheep for 20p. We met S, who was thrilled with her purchase of an Icelandic fleece (with a  staple at least six miles long…) for just £4 (wish I had seen that first!) and also J, who was wearing a very fetching cashmere Morning Surf scarf 😉

We cracked the jar of eggs open for our tea – since when we have been perched by the fire. I have been knitting on some plain vanilla man socks and not enjoying the experience. All my nice needles are deployed elsewhere and I am knitting with aluminium 7″ DPNs with a nylon mix sock yarn. It’s kinda sticky, if you know what I mean. Anyway, it prompted me to look for some Addi circs on eBay and when they arrive I plan to experiment with the magic loop.

Not sure where the day went to, really.

Back to work routines tomorrow and neither of us is looking forward to that at all.

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

Nell and I had a lovely walk this morning. The weather has cooled considerably and there was a very pleasant breeze. We both made better time than of late. … Continue readingOh, deer
