I am not bored, I have far too many projects on the go to ever become bored. But, why is there always a BUT? I am starting to feel a little restless, the days are starting to merge into each other and I do feel a little fed up. I know how blessed I am and have a lot to be thankful for here comes that BUT again...But it would be nice to get out and about a little instead of been cooped up in our little cottage. I have lost count how many times we have had to cancel breaks away and trips to meet up with family. We don't bother making plans anymore. It saddens me that the last years for my parents are been spent in isolation. Our own retirement plans dampened by this deadly virus, life is not easy at the moment. Alexa to the rescue playing all our favourite tunes...What a difference music and a boogie makes! It has lifted our spirits and normality is resumed.
We have had a sprinkling of snow. Nothing like the huge amount that we are seeing on the mainland but enough to bring the children out and make us smile.
As you can see the chickens have had to be moved. There is avian flu in the UK so all poultry need to be locked up. We made them a large run and covered it with wire so they have plenty of room for roaming. Not free range but at least they are safe.
There was a lot of activity on the surrounding crofts as the sheep were scanned yesterday to see what they were carrying . Animals are not aware of social distancing...I am guessing there was some fun moments that will be recalled when the crofters get together.
Work continues on the dolls house, a little at a time. I am also still working on little gifts for the church doorstep blessings project. Thank you for your suggestions. This week I have made some shabby chic style mixing spoons. I must admit I did enjoy doing these.
It was a fun make. It took me back to when the girls were small and we decoupaged jewellery boxes, such a nice memory.
How are you all doing? I am genuinely interested to know. We all seem to be coping in different ways. Hope all is well with you. Take care and stay safe.
See you soon.
