Hey Lovely People,
Hope you are safe and well. I had planned on doing this yesterday, but time has gotten away with me. I haven’t even caught up on reading the blogs I like to follow.
TAFE is chugging away nicely, although taking up quite a bit more time than expected, particularly in the subjects I like, I suppose they’re the ones I’m putting more time and effort into.
I’ve spotted these little guys twice now in this same spot on my way home from the bus stop. I wish they wouldn’t hang so close to the road, but they seem to know what they’re doing. I wonder if they are the same pair that were in the pool a few weeks back?
On the Reenactment front, I’m busy getting my kit ready for the St Ives Medieval Fair which is on in mid-September. I’m really looking forward to it although I have lots of things to make in preparation for it. I’ll be camping there over two nights and am lucky enough to be sharing space in a Viking style tent. Yay!!! Right now I’m working on my linen undertunic which is all handsewn. Soda has decided he loves the feel and smell of linen and loves to “help” lol.
“Let me help you with this.”
Progress is pretty slow due to handsewing, but I’m getting there. I’ll post a progress picture next week.
…he takes his “helping” very seriously.
One of the girls in my group is having a birthday party in a couple of weeks. She is in contact with a Medieval reenactment group who are making available their archery equipment and I’m assuming themselves for the day. It should be lots of fun. I’ve never tried archery before.
And one last update before I go. We’ll be moving in a few weeks! I’ve been staying with my daughter and her partner who are currently housesitting here. We’ve found a place to rent together for about a year while they save to buy a place of their own. It will give me a chance to save too for wherever I move to after that. It’s all quite exciting although I probably won’t be quite so excited when it comes to the nuts and bolts of the actual moving haha. It shouldn’t really be too bad though. I travel pretty light these days,
Well that’s it for now. Talk to you next time.
Love V ❤
