Home is Where the Heat Is

I’m relieved to finally be able to say that my bathroom finally has a source of heating!

It may not be plumbed-in and it may only be available ‘on demand’ but it’s got to improve the prospect of showering next winter!

As Clear As…

As you’re probably aware, the UK has been hit by a heavy dosage of snow recently and, last night (or, early morning), it was time for the south-west of England to receive its fair share. This is where I’m glad that I have a job where I only have to work half a day on a Friday… I’m more encouraged to make an effort to get in to work on time (which I did) and, I still get the whole afternoon to go out and to enjoy these rare sights of whiteness.

I think this is the first time we’ve had any proper snowfall for two-years? At least, in this part of the country. Apparently, another couple of showers are forecast for tomorrow morning as well.

As clear as white…

When I have more time, I’ll make a better effort to collate all the photos I’ve taken (currently counting 89, including this one), upload them in to a Flickr album and to then inform you all with a new blog post. Photography is a part-time interest of mine and so, it deserves a place on this blog.

Before I have to go and do other things, I just wanted to share this one image with you because, amongst my list of many other things to do, I still need to pick-up, repair and refit a 4ft tall fence panel that blew down months ago. I’m hoping that it doesn’t need replacing. If I have to cut some new battens for it then, hey, I also get to use my workshop! 😉

As you can tell, now is not the time for me to be running blades and bits at several thousands of RPM when I can barely feel my toes sometimes. I do need to go out there and seriously sort out my first pile of tools to sell though (hand and power tools that I can manage without).
