Today’s picture is of the new workshop under construction. Half of the roof is on, but I need to wait for some poly carbonate sheets for the other side. As I was building it, I couldn’t help thinking about all of the poor souls that don’t have one of the basic needs for any creatureContinue reading “July 15th – Workshop progress”
Today’s picture/post is a bit different, and is connected to mental health. As you’ll see, there are numbers on each drawer in my workshop, and I have a white board detailing what they contain, for example, 4 contains plumbing stuff, 10 contains electrical stuff. When it comes to mental health, we sometimes need different toolsContinue reading “July 14th – workshop cupboard”
A lovely walk today with a few friends. It is easy to think you need to drive for hours to find somewhere nice, but there really are some hidden gems on you doorstep. The weather helped, as did the company, but it is always nice to get off the sofa and go for a strollContinue reading “July 12th – Walkies ….”
Today’s picture is of a single poppy, amongst a field of oats. It’s OK to be different amongst the crowds, to be an individual, although sometimes it can be daunting. Be strong, be yourself.
Today’s picture is of a lady that we often see whilst walking the 4 legged children. She is either on her way to work or on her way home. I recall the commute I endured when working from the office. Stuck in traffic most days, trying to get to North Bristol, with a journey timeContinue reading “July 9th – The commuter”
Today’s picture is of a bug with what looks like a needle coming out of its backside. I have no idea what it is (possibly giant wood wasp or giant Horntail), but I certainly wasn’t going to upset it. It was more than twice the size of a wasp. Thankfully it buzzed off 🤣…..
Today’s picture is of my wife doing on-line Zumba to raise money for our local gym that has been badly impacted by the Corona virus lockdown. The gym is brilliant, and treat customers like extended family. It is not for profit charitable trust. What ever your political view, I don’t envy politicians trying to balanceContinue reading “July 5th – Zumba….”
Today’s picture is of our summerhouse, minus glass and doors, just prior to demolition. It was here when we bought the house 16 years ago, and has lasted well, but has now started to rot, and rodents have also been munching it. I am going to build a workshop in it’s place so that shouldContinue reading “July 6th – Goodbye summer house…..”
Today’s picture, is of our dear friends Clive and Sarah, who have been our drive guests for a few weeks due to their year long trip, being put on hold due to the Corona Virus out-break, and having rented out their house. Thanks to travel restrictions being lifted, they are on their way again. WeContinue reading “July 7th – Au Revoir”
