What a drip

Lightning woke me a little after three this morning and the storm continued for about an hour, on and off. This a rare thing here, where we normally suffer one or two strikes and then nothing. This time the lightning was distant. All power remained on and no sockets blew off the wall but I did get out of bed to unplug my laptop, just in case. Nell appeared unperturbed and slept peacefully beneath our bed.

I could have done without it, knowing as I did that I must be up early to go to town. I was in a deep sleep when Mr L woke me this morning, dreaming vivid dreams of people that I knew many years ago.They hadn’t changed a bit but, oh my goodness, some of them were very improper.

In town I took my adverts to For Arts Sake, then dropped into the jewellers to have  new battery fitted to my watch. It was there, when I enquired as to the correct time, that I realised that I had but ten minutes in which to make it to Outpatients. I legged it up to the hospital and arrived hot, sweaty and flustered. Of course the doctor was late. It was so hot in the hospital that I was unable to restore equanimity.

After my appointment I enjoyed a restorative light drizzle as I walked back into town, where I had coffee and then went to purchase cheese and olives for supper. Then to Tesco and when I came out of there it was tipping down. I struggled through the downpour with my shopping and took refuge n the Library,where I ate my Tesco sandwich before heading back out into the rain and on to the ferry.

Overall, not a great day and not very enjoyable. Some sock knitting done. Got home to find that Mr L had sold his drum kit. Matters progress, though no news yet from our solicitor.

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
