  • Back pain, rhubarb crumble, and spring dinners in the backyard before the snow comes again

    Back pain, rhubarb crumble, and spring dinners in the backyard before the snow comes again

    I put my back out on Thursday lifting a box of groceries from outside the front door. It wasn’t a big box but it had squash, potatoes, sweet potatoes and lots of other heavy things in it. On Friday I was hobbling around like an old woman which was very poor timing because I had […]

  • A new crochet jumper

    A new crochet jumper

    I made myself a jumper. The diagonal lines are deliberate; it wasn’t me stuffing up 🙂 I got the pattern on Etsy and it’s quite an easy one to follow and a relatively quick project.

  • Daffodils and vote cycling

    The days are getting really long here. I’m surprised by how light it is and for how long. The vampire in me is wondering how I’m going to get to sleep mid-summer. I might have to get some blackout curtains. Sunrise is at 6:03am and sunset at 8:13pm but it starts getting light sometime around […]
