... weatherwise! Monday we had the worst storm, wind and rain wise, for many a year. Winds of 99mph were recorded not that far from us but the storm passed over the North Sea to Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands were the winds were recorded at around 120mph. There was a bit of damage in our area but not that much. Hubby's shed lost some of it's roofing felt, which is now being dealt with, and a fence panel, which was already loose, became looser and that has been dealt with. Other than that there's not been a lot going on of any note.
I did sell my bow again and for a LOT more than it sold for originally. Quite a bidding war went on at the end. An American was after it and he was determined but not quite as determined as a Brit was. Good to know there were people out there that new the worth of the bow and I know, because of that, it's gone to a good home :)
We've found the guys that did most of the work in our house back in the early to mid 90s. We have been more than pleased with what they did and we've called them back to deal with what we want doing now. Just wish we'd found them last year when we were after having the bathroom remodelled. They did the bathroom in the first place and we would have been more than happy to have them redo it. Didn't happen but now we've found them again they're not getting away again! We have a long list and they can deal with it all ..... new floors, new woodwork, decorating .... a complete transformation. We've made a start as we've had a new boiler and a new gas fire with surround fitted over the summer. Don't think it will be complete by Christmas but we're in no hurry. Would rather time and care was taken as it has to last ... at least, the flooring does. I can go shopping for wallpaper and then furniture. Excited!
Now, what photos? Way back in August 2012 a group of us went to a beading class in Fareham. Squished into a very unsatisfactory space as a workroom with access to an old outside loo we were given beads, needle, Fireline and an instruction leaflet and pretty much left to get on with it. Fine for those experienced in this type of thing but pretty much useless for those of us that weren't. Anyway, with a
little lot of help from our friends, for some of us, we produced a beaded necklace that was actually quite pretty. Could see ways it could be improved but I was pleased with my effort ....
