Jo - didn't recognise you there with your new avatar

08/12/2012 at 18:07

Is that significant in 'magic' terms? Does any one know. (Next Wednesday i mean)

Thanks for the kind comments It's really appreciated, Obviously influenced by the great Geoff Hamilton I see various things on my travels and then think how can I make that so I can afford it, The weathervane took some work as everything is hand cut from the shape of the dog to the letters, after I made this I ended up making another one with a football club  emblem for a friends disabled father, I have the obelisks sorted now and have made 3 so far with some more planned for next year, they looked really good with sweet peas grown up them. I am really pleased with the greenhouse planter, this is the prototype and needs a fair bit more work to grind off excess welds etc, I think once it's painted, lined with moss and planted it should look really nice.

You have me stumped with the choccy geoff, my best guess is a vicar with salmonella poisoning,  If thats right your chocolatier was obviously having a bad day

Christmas cards? Not bought any yet.

Norm,  Love your metal creations and look forward to seeing more.

Jo, your avatar is lovely.

Aggie the chook is on Baytril for her wheezles and was OK when I left for the Christmas parade. We got the bus there to save parking hassles etc. Never again!! Had to wait an hour and a quarter getting colder, tireder and grumpier by the minute at the end of the afternoon to get home again : @

08/12/2012 at 20:54

Soldier.........I would have never got that, that was very cryptic

Hi Kate, think I'll buy a ticket as well

Enjoyed the dancing, homemade chilli for dinner

 

08/12/2012 at 21:17

You know on 'what to do thids week' for 6th Decenber they say earmark your brussel sprouts . Does that mean you have to go and mark every sprout with wool or somethng so you know which you are going to eat? that one, that one, no, not that one!!!

Enjoyed dancing as well

08/12/2012 at 21:30

I'm off again now. Catch you all tomorrow. Hopefully.

08/12/2012 at 21:32

Hi everyone, and a big warm welcome to Norm2. Is there a Norm1? I've lost track with being away.

Loved your photo's and Gary's brussels, you have got plenty on nobs on them -  an old Nottingham/Midland name for brussel sprouts.

We managed to survive the light show at Rufford Park, not quite what I expected but enjoyable none the less, but bl.....y cold. It was just starting to snow as we left.

Geoff. - your clue today for the choccy was flipping awful, I would never have got that had I been home in time to enter.

Hope all invalids are feeling better.

Will catch you tomorrow.

Chris.

On the subject of sprouts, I always thought that I hated them. This stems from my childhood days of preparing Sunday lunch with my Mum and the result being very crunchy al dente sprouts.Not nice

I have since eaten well cooked sprouts and now I love them

Nice sprouts Zippy

Flo- nice avator, I loved Willow the wisp
