Fortunately, the only grey blocks I’ve had to look at lately are the endless blocks of fabric needing cut for this Eco Motives order. It makes me thank my lucky stars I don’t live in a town anymore, even this much grey regimentality is getting me down, no less because I’m sure a large fabric guillotine could do the job in a tenth of the time. Dreeeeeam!
That was yesterday, today was decorating. Much more fun but more time consuming than I had hoped even though I was sewing like a pixie on speed (except this pixie was on strong coffee).
I cycled back in glorious sunset hues of deep orange and pinks, stopped at the shop to grab something sweet and something savoury for the Halloween party in the hall and completely forgot about the duking apples…ooops! Right now Yorick and Tom (ill looking devil) will no doubt be whirling sparklers and gasping at fireworks organised by our resident explosives expert, Mark. Handy, very handy! And I’m not there…hurraaaay!
I won’t be around for the next couple days. Heading down to a lodge near Edinburgh for a night of hedonistic revelry with musician mates (Shooglenifty, The Love boat big band, Orkestra del Sol, Salsa Celtica and Eliza Carthy ) and my great friend Conrad who will be 40 tomorrow.
Have good weekend
