ups and downs, Life normal!

I was successful in adopting the Timespan Museum in Helmsdale this week and have a plan of action for the next month or so that is doable, I have had some good meetings and learnt loads of new things in the last week or so. All in all it has been a fab week.

Some friends have been off walking and I so wanted to go, but they go during the week which works for them and I work... never mind I can go at weekends and may take daughter some time or son, either one... can't see Tom happy walking tough, not his thing, he does like sailing so it works. They did a walk from Tain to Dornoch, bus form here to Tain then walk to Dornoch via the sea side and then bus back from Dornoch. I am green with envy, and stuffed with cold so may be it was just as well I couldn't go.

I am still working on my weather scarf, and planning, I am keeping a note of the weather and will knit up the start as soon as I have decided the colours, not happy with choices yet! but at one row a day it shouldn't take me long to catch up!

I have lost my crochet hook as I walked in form the car this morning! I hate that I shall go and have a look later, Tom did go then but didn't find it! Grrrr

Just had my own look and its gone!

I heard yesterday that a friend of mine I knew was ill and wouldn't be getting better has died. She was my age and had 3 young kids! life isn't fair at times, my thoughts are with her friends and family.

So my world is full of ups and downs, I must remember this when it seems very down and to enjoy when its up :-) though unlike when i was a child and you were up or down, life comes in mixed now, I can be up and down! Being an adult isn't always fun but being in nominal charge of my own life compensates for the worst.

I have just taken some new pictures of my library, hope you like them :-)


  1. First... *hugs* I'm sorry about the "downs".
    It's too bad your crochet hook disappeared; we get used to some of our tools...

    Then... what a week! It's fantabulous that you adopted that museum. ;)
    Your library looks very, very nice! I'll have to see if I can take a photo of the one at work to show you.....

  2. Security mirros are fab things as you can't get high enough or far enough back otherwise! even has some of my regulars working/reading papers in the middle too! so pleased...
