Wednesday Spinning

I very bravely dusted down my bicycle for Spring today and I packed my knitting and cycled off to P’s – which is, for me, one of the furthest spinning venues on the island. Forty minutes it took me, and I got a soaking as I cycled into a headwind for the last stretch…. just as a heavy drizzle began.

Never mind, I am certain that the exercise did me good and I did manage to get my “green of the day” captured en route, as well as this wee fellow – who was waiting by the garden gate for me.

I can see you!
I can see you!

The sea was very flat and still today. The air was less so, though before I got onto my bike I would have sworn that there was no wind! Certainly our anemometer said there was none, but that was because it was broken. Mr L spent the entire morning fixing it. He managed to lose track of Nell while he was doing that and we had to go retrieve her from the road. Bad dog!

Of course, I couldn’t take my wheel to spinning, and I don’t really ‘do’ drop-spindling, so I took the man sweater. I thought I’d just pick up the stitches and whip the collar up before I came home.



At least the stitches are on the needle now, ready to knit. Sadly, I can’t knit them, because I am about to meet with SpinningGill to put The Book to bed. And I haven’t had lunch yet. All that fresh air and exercise? I am starving!

We were driving along, close to Le Dorat at the time, when I felt that “aren’t we fortunate to live in such a lovely part of France” feeling washing over me. I had a sudden urge to invite all my friends to come and stay and to shareContinue readingBare Naked

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

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

On our way again. Not far to go and no check in until 2pm so a late and lazy start to our day. I have been watching eagles. Not sure what we are going to be doing for the next few days. We want to take Nell to a vet and the outcome of that… Continue reading October 18, 2020 at 01:22PM
