African flower crochet motif

A rainy day

After looking at the weather forecast I decided to nip into town to do the end of week top-up shop today rather than Friday. I also had our grandson's birthday card to post. I dropped the card into the post box in town on the way and the shopping didn't take long. I got in and out without getting wet, though it has been raining this afternoon.

Last night we had a brief thunderstorm which took out the internet. Fortunately this was after we'd finished watching the new series of "Silent Witness" on catch up. The internet was fine the following morning. We think the power was out on the other side of the valley. We can normally see lights over there, but everything was dark.

Otherwise it's been a rather blah day. There are all sorts of things I should be doing and I don't feel like doing any of them. I should probably read some of the Welsh novel and then see if that makes me feel any more motivated...

J is for Jeweller

36/52 for the group 2021 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: J is for Jeweller

I snapped this on the way through town this morning. The shop only opens a few days a week and he takes the valuable stuff out of the window when the shop is closed. But I thought these pieces were nice.
