This is my second bought of illness this winter… on the whole compared to others I’ve been lucky. Touch wood. Unfortunately as I’ve got to do my work on a phone I can’t work until my cough has abated.  I’m trying to use the time productively – taking part in Minimal February. Though the things I’ve discarded are piling up by the door. I’m avoiding going out until I really have to so my chest has time to recover. I’m also crocheting a granny shawl scarf from one ball of   sock yarn found under my bed. Tidying and decluttering does have some benefits. I call this comfort crafting perched in bed with blankets piled up and Miss F stomping in and out.

I’m trying and failing to make up for a lack of housework over the last one and a half months. I mean the basics have been done, clean clothes and clean dishes. But the backlog! i’ve scrubbed ineffectually at the shower.. this will be done again tomorrow I’m sure. Thrown a load of washing on, and thrown out two bags of rubbish. And and slowly gathering together recycling. I try and do as much before the light goes here as I really don’t like doing ANYTHING once its dark. Just to let you know that over on my facebuik page I’m trying to post one cheery Scottish Colourist picture a day. Currently its all Anne Redpath.

Almost the last event of Hogmanay meet some fellow #blogmanay bloggers for a drink at the Monument Bar. Warmed up with a hot drink and admired the skaters. Beautiful moon of Edinburgh but pics did not do justice to it.

Last stop on Scot:lands was the Hebcelt event in McEwan Hall. At this point I was utterly knackered and impressed by the bairns dance off which was taking place in the large central space!
