Stuff and nonesense.
Here’s the two teapots that I put together on friday, I haven’t decorated them yet though, still making my mind up about them. I was thinking I should make them with a bit smaller bodies, maybe these are too big, they’d hold a fair bit of tea. The handle on the front of the top one is the same as the one on the lid, it means that it’s not completely central if that makes sense. What I do like about them however is the handle pulled off the pot rather than stuck on as they always have been in the past.
What a weekend of differences! On saturday
Paul and me went out to Kirroughtree
forest for a walk, in full waterproof gear, trousers, jacket, waterproof boots, woolly hats! It was belting down with rain all day, almost none stop, so much so that we came home to a slightly
flooded kitchen. Sunday was like what summer should have been like, just a month or so late.
These pictures aren’t in the order that I had planned so the story will go a bit backwards now. The sunset is from the back of the house here, we went down to Kirkcudbright
evening for the best fish and chips I have had in ages. It’s a wee place down near the harbour, they do take away or you can eat in and if you eat in you can take your own wine or beer with you. Anyone that comes to stay with us will now be taken there while they are with us. It’s a cracker.
So in the afternoon on sunday
after having a bit of a trauma over what to do with such a lovely and unexpectedly warm and sunny day I took myself off for a ride. I planned to go down to work and do a bit but when I got there
there was no-one else in and I just didn’t fancy being inside on my own really so I just carried on cycling for a while, had a good run out, it was a fabulous day. This picture with the sign post in was taken about 200 yards from the house here, we really can see for
miles from here.
Explored a new road on the way to the chip shop and this is what we saw.
Before all that though I made a Victoria Sponge cake and by goodness it’s a tasty beast, our next visitors might get one of these for dinner too just so I can have an excuse to make another. Needless to say there’s not a great deal of that cake left, I’ll have to get
back on the bike to get rid of the effects of all these fish and chips and cake. More sit ups
