This hiatus always annoys me. Can we please get the 6th over and done with and then return to normal? We have been out and about, mainly doing bottle bank duty and then making the most of being out of the house by calling in at the supermarket. Learning Point 1: Shopping on 2nd January is largely a waste of time. Learning Point 2: Shopping on the 4th January is largely a waste of time
Today is a day for seeking comforts: a blazing log fire, favourite old clothes, a good book, a hearty homemade soup… Unfortunately we have run out of carb-loaded goodies for having with hot chocolate. We have no drinking chocolate either, but I can make a Keto version with cocoa powder. Is it too early in the day to be adding rum to it? Although it is several degrees warmer than yesterday it feels so much
The weather was vile on Thursday but that did not stop us from jumping in the car and going looking for some of the locally-produced gin. By “local” I don’t mean in the next village but it is a Limousin product. The Limousin is a large area. We needed a run of about an hour’s duration to get to the first stockist that was likely to have the flavour that we were seeking. In the
Nell and I went for a walk this morning. It was a gorgeous day but we ended up by not going very far. The Crooked Man had gone out and I was expecting a parcel delivery. 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 got
Almost fell at the first hurdle today. It has been a very busy one, leaving little time to visit the blog. The day has been spent between laundry and kitchen. It was too good a day not to catch up on the post-trip washing, so I tackled that in between the necessary task of checking food stores and meal planning. We shopped on Thursday, on our way home from our final stop at Capdenac. I
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? …
There were other constructions but they don’t appear to have made it onto my camera card so are not currently available f or inclusion. Together with the daily dog walk (health permitting) and a deal of sun bathing, it all helped to pass the time and our 8 weeks were up almost before they seemed to have started. The Date Night thing was excellent. It helped to pass the time in planning, prepping and cooking.
How does a body keep a blog alive and interesting when that same body is allowed out for just one hour a day and no further than 1 Kilometre from home? I have no answer to that question, I just pose it here to consider and to return to. If only I had a proper garden. If only the garden centres were not closed as non-essential business, I might be spending this down time in
