You may scold

I am doing a parlous job of keeping up to date, aren’t I? I swear that it is these 4 day weekends – they leave me with no time to myself at all.

Nothing has been done – no spinning, no knitting and no blog updating, anywhere. Am just about keeping up with blipping.

It is all made worse by the fact that today I discovered a fabulous time-waster. More of that in the weeks to come, I think.

So, sorry, one week on and still nothing to say!

Today’s pic is this morning’s Monday Outlook blip. Dull, is it not?

Dull weather, dull life. Mr L spent his weekend patching the porch roof and power washing the path. I did some organising in the kitchen and washed the floor. It’s not photogenic and it isn’t interesting.


I think I need to get a handle on this and create some interest.

The SUMS Puzzle Hunt week ought to be along soon. I do hope so, anyway. I’m tired of dull.

Right – I have been instructed to remove anything I value from my caravan so I must go out now and tackle that task. The Autumn gales are finally on their way and we expect gusts of 60mph or so on Thursday. It will be the first test of the caravan’s tie-downs.

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

We just met our first Spanish self service fuel, there has always been an attendant whenever we have fueled up on previous visits. The machine took the card, asked which pump (!?), what fuel, and how much. It chucked the ticket out, said something in Spanish, and then failed to provide any diesel. We are… Continue reading October 21, 2020 at 11:21AM

    Very wise to be cautious about the ‘van. Hopefully it’ll be fine. Your chicken house is. 🙂
