What’s next?

I bought two new Kindle books last night – I don’t know why, I have so many queued for reading already!

Added to the queue were another Hugh Howey, which I am looking forward to but think after the trilogy a break is desirable, and a Simon Armitage.

Which to read next? Can’t decide whether to go for Simon or one of the half-read books or another from the backlog.

It is a glorious day today and another bike ride would be good but we went to Vila do Bispo and back yesterday and my knees are sore.

Domestic duties have taken up the day so far. Later we will walk up into town when the shops reopen at 3pm. We need to visit the pharmacy and I want to take a peek in the cork shop and perhaps reacquaint myself with the Spar – research and planning for Mr L’s birthday meal has begun in earnest.

We will work our way home via Holi Diwali, possibly calling in at the bike shop opposite first.

Today’s December Reflections prompt is "Angel" and I shall need to ponder that one whilst we walk. I wonder where the cemetery is in Sagres, they usually furnish a few angels and it has been some time since I lugged the camera around a cemetery.

Bare Naked

We are home again, after a month-long trip away. A trip during which I completely failed to get my laptop out. It was good to come home. 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

Ah, the windy highway. The last time we came down here our awning blew open… Thankfully it’s not even close to being that windy today. Phew. Not so good now that the tolls have been removed and there are HGVs to contend with. A bit macho, your Spanish lorry driver.. #livereportingfromtheroad #Spain #autumn2020

Rather a different day today but still warm, with 24 degrees expected by the time that we reach Ribamar. Those Happy Hour beers will be tempting. Shopped this morning before leaving, to find the Christmas Turron had arrived overnight. I confess; we spent an inordinate amount on Turron and chocolate. #livereportingfromtheroad #Spain #autumn2020
