Not a bad day, nor a terribly productive one. I got my walking done, including the extra up-and-down of the front steps. 2032 steps so far today.


Thank you for all your kind messages. How I wish we could all sail off together, on something like the Royal Yacht (for size) and someone like Skye Gyngell to cook for us! I think the poor Queen was seriously sad when they took it away from her.


Yes, anticipation over the next two months will be half the pleasure. It will be wonderful travelling with C., because we can retreat to our room and talk about the other passengers! The Majestic Line always offers two single cabins, at no increase in fare, on each cruise. They sell out fast, but last time (Outer Hebrides, 2018) I had one of them. We were a very congenial party, but it would have been all the better for someone to chew it over with.  


I got that first sleeve of the Polliwog bound off. I hope to do a bit more this evening – but I often hope that, and almost always fail.


  1. My phone, not only counts my steps also the number of flights of stairs. Yours might too!
    More fun numbers!

  2. A dream private cruise with "Knitting Friends of Jean". I like the idea.

  3. Anticipating a trip is really half the fun. My husband and I and one of our grown daughters are going to France to ride bicycles in September (god willing) and I’m already having fun mentally packing my suitcase.

  4. Your trip sounds perfect! Best time of year to travel. Nice to have a holiday planned after a whole year of nothing to look forward to.

  5. I am happy for you and also envious. Your cruise will be wonderful.

  6. It's wonderful to have a trip to look forward to. Travel is something I look forward to if I can ever get a vaccine appt!
