Can you feel it coming? Spring is just around the corner and I don't know about you, but I am feeling very positive and very optimistic regarding the rest of this year. Fingers crossed though, just in case.
Here on the farm we are having a good spring clean. We're clearing up the rubbish that blows all over the fields, as well as the miles of black plastic that wraps up the hay bales for the horses' winter food.
We're collecting chicken, duck and goose eggs, and we're enjoying poached egg on granary toast for most of our lunches.
Then there is the farmhouse. All the spiders have been given notice to move out else they risk being swept up along with their webs. Every nook and cranny and shelf and corner is being turfed out and decisions made between charity shop, tip, or chuck on the fire.
Bits Of Clinic Everywhere!
Amongst all my stuff, I am still finding bits and pieces that belong in my clinic. I kept almost everything but what with all the moving around all my stuff got spread around and keeps cropping up in the most unexpected of places. At the bottom of a huge bag that I was convinced had just a few bundles of spare towels I found a couple of adult nappies and a white rubber sheet!
I am hoping to start filming again from 12 April. The clinic is shaping up nicely and looking more and more clinic-y. All white, with authentic anaesthetic machines (hmm, I must do a page on my modest collection) with other various pieces of medical paraphernalia with hints of green and red rubber and NHS patterned patient gowns.
I've also been looking at PVC-U-LIKE and seeing what will fit into my clinic and look amazing on film, but be fun to play with. If you are a fan of The Anna List Clinic you'll spot some of my all time favourites.
I've ordered some really nice looking dresses and aprons in both green pearl and glass green. But are they for me or you? Ha! Not telling!
Whilst I have been waiting for this never ending lockdown to end I started podcasting. For a few reasons. Because I wanted to know if I could do it, and yep, the tech is easy enough but goodness, it takes an age to edit, produce, and market. This was all very doable whilst I was otherwise twiddling my thumbs but it isn't going to be sustainable once I start filming again.
With that in mind, I have decided that a podcast per week is not possible. So I have switched the schedule to once a month which is more on par with the frequency of other similar podcasts. Then I am going to suck it and see.
What!? You didn't know I had a podcast? It's free and you can listen in secret through your phone whilst commuting, walking, or jogging.
