primrosethb I spotted my first spring primrose today on my way to the doctor’s surgery. This one was in a ditch near the Lady Kirk. I know that there are many in the kirkyard and would have liked to stop for a wander, but needed to get home and relieve Mr L of puppy-minding duties.

I also saw many lambs, but none of them would stay still for the camera.

I was a good girl and I went out on my bike instead of taking the car. Well worth it, on a fine spring morning, but it doesn’t half cut into one’s knitting time even if it does provide camera opportunities.

Yes. This post does intentionally obscure the fact that I have done no knitting or spinning. I rather thought that the pretty picture might draw attention away from this horrible fact…

… but it is spinning group day tomorrow, chez Woolgatherer, so maybe something will get done. Cake tomorrow may be orange drizzle cakes again. I have lots of oranges, but little time.

I should be making “Earth” ATCs today, but am suffering a bad case of can’t-be-bothered this week. Still feeling ridiculously tired. Suspect the blood tests will have something to reveal there. Ah, well.

Plus, I was finding it hard going. Not feeling on top of my game right now. Possibly a touch of “Keto Flu”? I’d like to think so, but honestly haven’t been working hard enough at it to have gotContinue readingFeeling a bit seedy

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
