Cheese Crackers & Jelly

How many mothers with CP (some would call ourselves spaz hands) does it take to rip jelly blocks and then remove the set jelly from jelly molds? One.  And today, that one is me. And this is what it looks like when your kid insists on having that jelly with cheese crackers. Notice how the jelly looks like butterflies?  Yeah, me...

The One Where Scenery Happens

These photos were taken by Neil, while I sat and ate cake from the Blue Shed Cafe.       And this is the sunset.  From our house.  On a Tuesday.   What’s the view from your house?                          ...

Currently Reading, & What Else?

Reading: Turning Angel, Greg Iles.  Does anyone else read the Penn Cage books? The Passenger, Lisa Lutz.  Thrillers are my brain-candy. Again. And my second #LitsyGoesPostal book.  LGP is a postal bookclub/journaling project/generally good thing made up of people that first connected on the Litsy app. The idea is to send your favourite book, a notebook and good vibes to someone who reads it, writes about it and sends it to the next person in the rotation. In  a few years, my own well-travelled books will return to me with fresh ink, new thoughts and friendships.  I love any mail that isn’t bills and book-mail is THE BEST. Watching: What? Like right now? The same Scooby-Doo episodes that I used to watch.  Now with added Isla. Current on-demand happenings: Billions, Mr. Robot, and um, The Great British Bake Off. Listening to: The Barra MacNeils.  They recently played live here on Skye.  Isla’s first gig.  She was mesmerised.  And I lost my shit when they played Caledonia. Making: A mess? Memories?  Sorry, that’s another thing. Feeling: Slightly stranded.  Antsy.  Old. Planning: New work gigs, I hope.  A holiday, I think.  A visit from my Mom. We should also paint the kitchen and buy a sofa-bed, but yeah.  Different list. Loving:   Weekends.  Coffee. This photo.  And the kid in it.   Notes: Currently info here. I’m @LornaDH if you want to...
