I was not going to bother with a WIP Wednesday post this week as we seem to have had several WIP reports in recent days. Added to which, there is nothing new in progress to see. Then I recalled that Norie was knitted so quickly that we never saw it in progress. So here it is, the Norie hat in incarnation #2.

I have 60 of 83 body rows completed and have every intention of completing this hat tonight.

The first incarnation was way too large, the second appears to be on the snug side. We may yet see incarnation #3. Sigh.

Today has been immensely busy, but not in any direction that I had intended and I therefore feel that I have been very unproductive as I am behind on everything that I meant to do.

One thing I did do was to blog an idea that I had overnight.

Tomorrow I must deal with a mini egg glut – if we get another five tomorrow then I shall have 30 eggs to deal with. Apparently we are having egg curry again. I like egg curry, but perhaps not quite this frequently.

Also tomorrow, I hope to spend a day at my work table with a grafting needle… but as I failed to get the shopping lists sorted today, perhaps there will be no time for needlecraft.

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
