Spud was not a totally impressed with my offer to walk him around the field this afternoon. I got the distinct impression he’d rather be playing ball with the boys. For every few pace we made Spud turned back and checked out the back door, just in case he was missing someone or some thing more exciting.
His luck was out on two counts, the weather today has been miserable, no one wanted to be outside, sleet snow or rain, take your pick (this photo was taken during a very brief interlude) the snow didn’t stick around (as Joe pointed out, it was suicidal of a snowflake to fall when the temperature is +1.9C) but the higher hills are white over. In addition everyone seemed to be engrossed in projects today, I’ve made a pair of curtains (woohooo domestic goddess!) and I’m just about to get stuck into my efforts to eBay a large collection of ‘stuff’ that has been lurking around in my families attics for the last three decades. This is a job I’ve been trying to get around to for months, worse than not doing it, up until a couple of weeks ago all I’d managed was some ‘research’ and to buy a Denby vase and an Art’s and Craft brooch; buying wasn’t part of the master plan. I’ve not quite broken even yet! Spud will have to entertain himself this evening.
